Hyperboloid Banner

Hypertac (HYPERboloid conTACt) is the original superior peHyperboloid Unrivalled Performancerforming hyperboloid contact technology designed for use in all applications and in harsh and demanding environments where high reliability and safety are critical.

The shape of the contact sleeve is formed by hyperbolically arranged contact wires, which align themselves elastically as contact lines around the pin, providing a number of linear contact paths. This construction allows a very tight control of the spring forces and consequently of the insertion and withdrawal forces. The inherent electrical and mechanical characteristics of the Hypertac hyperboloid contact ensure unrivalled performance
in terms of reliability, number of mating cycles, low contact force and minimal contact resistance.

Hypertac hyperboloid contact provides the following commercial benefits:

  • Low cost of ownership  - Does not need replacement during equipment life
  • Reduced system costs - Equipment design is less critical
  • Reduced qualification costs - No re-testing due to contact failures

The Hypertac hyperboloid contact is available in the following variants:
