Allectra is a leading manufacturer of High Vacuum and UHV components.
The company was founded sixteen years ago by two physicist entrepreneurs and has seen widespread adoption of its proprietary technology across multiple scientific disciplines. Allectra has also built a solid reputation for the delivery of complex high-profile projects.
Allectra specialises in electrical feedthroughs, cables, accessories and other items such as viewports. The company has three manufacturing facilities, one in the UK and two in Germany, with both scientific and engineering capabilities.
The company is actively involved in the development of new products which can yield technical advantage or cost-saving over conventional components. Our product range includes Pressure Burst Disks –three versions available including an ultra low pressure type with protective mesh cover, radiation resistant KAP301 insulated wires and radiation resistant wire with PEEK insulation.

Allectra has custom design and manufacturing departments with engineering and scientific capability in both the UK and Germany.
We provide High-Vacuum and Ultra-High Vacuum components and bespoke solutions in multiple scientific and technology disciplines.
Allectra has a skilled team of physicists, technical advisers, engineers and specialist project managers. We will produce detailed engineering drawings based on customers’ sketches – 3D compatibility check is included.
Manufactured parts, which may be special flanges made from stainless steel are produced in the company’s advanced workshop using numerically controlled manufacturing centres.
All items are fully tested before being commissioned; and cleaned to our ultra- high vacuum standard ( UHV) before being despatched to a pre-agreed delivery date.
Allectra is a green company and uses only environmentally approved cleaning fluids. The workshop and offices are heated by a carbon neutral wood pellet boiler and electricity for the manufacturing is generated by solar PV panels on the roof.
Allectra Limited is ISO 9001 certified.
Allectra is committed to developing new products which can yield technical advantage or cost-saving over conventional components.
By using these products, our customers are able to take advantage of the latest High Technology advancements we have been able to identify. For example, our Circular Miniature Feedthroughs are compact and can still hold up to 19 pins. They have now been adopted as a standard by Synchrotrons worldwide.
Our physicists and engineers originate, develop and manufacture components for the High Technology marketplace. These components have included High Current standard Sub-D feedthroughs, PT100 Resistors with a screw clamp mounting, the Allectra Triaxial feedthrough, Pressure Burst Disks – three versions, Radiation Resistant KAP301 insulated wires and high temperature, high radiation resistant limit switches (all materials compliant to ITER specifications).
