Hermetic Feed Throughs & Headers

A "terminal" is a device with a single contact pin; while a "header" has multiple terminals inserted in a frame. Terminals and headers are widely used in electrical devices such as relays, transformers and capacitors as a means of allowing electrical feed-through while maintaining atmospheric insulation. Applications that require a high level of hermetic performance were traditionally unable to leverage the advantages fiber optics can bring to a design, due to limitations imposed by the glass sealing process. To solve this problem, feed throughs (or feed thrus) were developed, and BTC stocks and distributes a wide range of them.
