Cables and Connectors

Power cables
  • Solutions for all connections

  • Cleanroom compatible

  • Power cables for currents up 100 A

  • Various cross-sections and lengths

  • Thermocouple extension cables

  • High-temperature bakeable cables and connectors up to 300°C

Power cables, cross-sections 2 x 2.5 / 25 / 16 mm², different lengths


We provide suitable power and thermocouple extension cables for all our products. Ready-to-connect cable sets consist of power cables and TC extension lines (including correct plugs and connectors) and are offered for all sources in a useful standard length of 6 m. Cut-to-measure individual cables of different cross-sections are available as well tailored to fit your application.

Power Cables

According to the specific current consumption of the sources power cables are provided with strands of diameter 2.5 mm² (25 A) up to 25 mm² (100 A).

Standard cables are bakeable up to 170°C. For use in bakeout panels PTFE-coated high-bakeable power cables (max. 260°C) are available. Since most UHV chambers only require 1-2 m of high-bakeable cables we manufacture customized cables consisting of standard and high-bakeable sections.
(Cables with multi-pin air-side connectors are limited to 125° for standard and 200°C for high-bakeable versions.)

Thermocouple Extension Cables

Our most commonly used type of thermocouple is W5%Re/W26%Re (type C). For some products also thermocouple NiCr/NiAl (type K) is offered.
We provide thermocouple extension cables for type C and type K thermocouples, necessary for transmission of the temperature measuring data from thermocouple feedthrough to temperature indicator/controller. All thermocouple extension cables and plugs are bakeable up to 300°C.
