ESA Energy Shunting Assembly (2)



Bulk-ESAThe Amphenol Energy Shunting Assembly (ESA) is a simple, compact unit which provides lightning and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) protection of systems in which many signal lines enter sensitive electronic
equipment. The efficient packaging of the ESA circumvents the concept of one protective device per line. It provides a surge arrestor which has the advantage of space sav­ing and simplified assembly when compared to current protective devices which range from diodes to large spark gaps.

The current ESA design consists of two 53-pin contact, Mil-Stan­dard, hermetic connectors assembled back to back, and encom­passing a ground plate. A sealed chamber is formed within this thru-bulkhead unit, housing 53 in-line spark gaps. Introducing a controlled atmosphere enhances fast rise breakdown.

The ESA can be integrated with an EMI filter connector which can improve its performance. These two assemblies provide a method to help protect against lightning, EMP, EMI and TEM­PEST effects.

EMI/EMP Filter Protection Connectors



filter groupAmphenol® EMI/EMP Protection Connectors offer the versatility of standard connectors with EMI/EMP protection for sensitive circuits. Internal housing of the EMI/EMP devices eliminates costly and bulky exterior discrete protection devices.Virtually all major MIL-Spec circulars can be incorporated with filter devices:

  • MIL-DTL-38999
  • MIL-DTL-5015
  • MIL-DTL-26482
  • MIL-DTL-27599
  • MIL-DTL-83723
  • MIL-DTL-26500


ESD Protected Connectors


Protection from Electrostatic Discharge

filter ESDAmphenol has developed cylindrical and rectangular connectors which protect sensitive components from Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) without diodes, varistors, gas tubes, or “experimental” semi-conductive materials.

These connectors utilize the Faraday Cage principle to shunt electro­static discharge events to the conductive enclosure on which the con­nector is mounted, thus never allowing the high voltage, high current discharge event to reside on any contacts.

The ESD protected connectors have the same physical envelope as their standard counterparts, and do not require special mounting or ter­minating techniques. All of the contacts remain fully functional, and electrical characteristics such as capacitance are not effected.
