Singapore. 10 February,2016. Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE) at Booth #B24 at the 2016 Singapore Airshow to see a complete range of TE’s interconnect systems and sensor solutions for mission-critical aerospace and defence applications, including force sensors. The new force sensors allow aircraft manufacturers to extend the use of composite materials to flight control surfaces, and enable the move from hydraulic to electro-mechanical actuation.

Sensors are part of TE’s expanded capabilities since last year’s acquisition of Measurement Specialties. TE’s recent acquisition of Polamco Ltd. also enhances its portfolio of interconnect systems, accessories and custom connectivity solutions including:

Sealed Harnesses: TE’s extensive product ranges and systems approach to harness design provide complete harness solutions – to help meet aerospace requirements and withstand wide operational temperature ranges.

Fiber Optics (MIL-DTL 38999, MIL-DTL 83526): TE’s fiber optic solutions help maintain the long-term reliability and flexibility, critical for products and business operations. TE’s optical fibers accommodate 10G Ethernet – with the capacity to handle next-generation 40G and 100G when needed – without the severe distance limitations of copper cable. They are easy to maintain in the field and reliable when operating in harsh environments.
