New Radiation Resistant Kapton Wires From Allectra
March 27, 2019
Allectra launch the new KAP301 series, special radiation resistant high temperature Kapton insulated wires. These wires replace the 311-KAPM-RAD series and can go to higher voltages.
They are currently available in 0.25mm diameter (301-KAPM-025), 0.35mm diameter (301-KAPM-035) and 0.6mm diameter (301-KAPM-060) with other sizes to follow including thermocouple wires.
Diamond Light Source, UK has successfully tested these wires under an electron beam to investigate their vacuum compatibility during radiation exposure and will now be using them in vacuum.
