"Zero Defects": Absolute reliability under the most extreme conditions in avionics and space
SCHURTER provides zero defect solutions to meet the highly specific requirements of electronic systems used on aircraft, satellites and spacecraft.
Very small, light and robust: These are increasingly important requirements of the Avionics
industry for the components of their suppliers. SCHURTER addresses this need with the FRM-A and DRM-A fuse holder/fuse combination.
An optimised unit for demanding requirements:
Designed and optimised for Avionics applications
FRM-A: Ultra-compact, light and made for
harsh environmental conditions
DRM-A: Whisker-free ceramic fuse with fast
For obvious reasons, specifications in Space & Avionics are significantly higher than the regular international standards. SCHURTER provides zero defect solutions to meet the highly specific requirements of electronic systems used on aircraft, satellites and spacecraft.
«Too important to fail» is the guiding principle in the manufacturing of components for the use in the area of Space & Avionics. SCHURTER is proud to meet standards such as defined in the ESA Internal Requirement Definitions or in Military Standards (e.g. MIL, NF, NNO, GAM T1) and Aviation Standards. As an experienced partner of the European Space Agency (ESA) we focus on the safety for power systems and develop customer specific fuse designs for over-current protection under extreme conditions. A proven example is the SCHURTER MGA-S, a surface mount fuse for space application.
SCHURTER solutions guarantee you long-term stability and highest reliability under extreme environmental conditions. They have a extreme operation temperature range and come into use where components have to work perfectly even under severe mechanical stress (e.g. vibration, shock), fast pressure increases or cosmic radiation.
The certification of our products, the manufacturing and the logistics are audited regularly. A product lifetime of up to 30 years, a guaranteed and documented life cycle as well as lifelong information and service add to the trustworthiness of SCHURTER solutions.
"The highly professional cooperation with SCHURTER not only produced a pioneering specification for the qualification of fuses for aerospace – it was furthermore a real pleasure. Besides the exceptional technological competence, the staff involved created a very congenial working atmosphere."
Denis Lacombe (ESTEC/ESA)
Qualified supplier of high-tech solutions
The cooperation between the ESA and SCHURTER has created two outstanding products with the MGA-S and the HCSF. As a result, to date SCHURTER has been the sole European supplier of qualified fuses by the ESA. Accordingly, SCHURTER has provided an impressive demonstration of the necessary technologies during both development and production. We are proud of the products that have been qualified by ESA and are ready to provide competent solutions to similar circuit protection challenges identified in the area of aerospace, and other applications requiring specialized circuit protection.
We are also using our broad-based expertise and the current aerospace technologies for our customers in the industrial sector, for example, when carrying out other specialized qualification processes. We welcome the opportunity to find the optimal made-by-SCHURTER solution together with you.
SCHURTER is a leading innovator and manufacturer of passive and active electronic components ensuring the clean and safe supply of power and ease of use of equipment.
