  • High-Voltage-Mica-Capacitor

    Mica+TM Mica Capacitors

    Teledyne Reynolds' Mica+TM high voltage, mica capacitors are designed and manufactured with reliability as the prime consideration. Featuring epoxy impregnated, reconstituted mica paper dielectric, these capacitors are unique in their ability to withstand extreme aerospace environments and severe duty under, both, pulsed and constant high voltage applications.


    Available in a Variety of Configurations  

    • Raw sections
      • For use in potted/embedded next higher assemblies.
    • Wrapped and end capped
      • For stand alone applications requiring no subsequent potting or encapsulation processes.
      • Wrap material is Mylar® or woven glass.
    • Fiberglass encased epoxy-filled construction
      • Provides the attributes of the epoxy molded configuration with no hard tooling required.
    • Low inductance/high current
      • Ideal for exploding foil initiators (EFI) and exploding bridgewire initiators (EBW) used in electronic safe, arm and fire (ESAF) systems.
      • Available in any of the above configurations.

  • SparkGaps

    Gas filled spark gaps are high energy, voltage controlled switching devices, unique in their ability to repeatedly switch currents of thousands of amperes. They are ideally suited for diverting large electrical surges caused by lighting, EMP and other sources of high voltage, high current transients.

    Teledyne Reynolds' standard spark gaps are constructed using only the highest quality, high alumina ceramics that have been metallized and plated. The brazing and gas filling process is computer controlled, resulting in a brazed joint between the electrodes and the ceramic body that is rugged and reliable.

    Except for 90 volt versions, all standard TRI spark gaps contain minute amounts (maximum of 10 μCi) of Tritium backfill gas. Each gas tube is identified with the international radiation symbol, H.
