Syosset, NY (May 22, 2006) — North Hills, a division of Porta Systems Corp., new Ultra Compact MIL-STD-1553 Box-Type Data Bus Coupler provides design engineers from the military, aerospace and commercial markets with many welcome advantages.

The smaller size— the low profile design and lightweight robust construction makes the North Hills Ultra Compact Data Bus Box Coupler the ideal solution for programs that are weight sensitive and have limited space and volume for installation.  The coupler is approximately .6” x .1.8” x 1.5” without connectors. 

This coupler is designed with a mounting tab for applications where the couplers must be firmly attached to the aircraft. 

Ultra Compact Box Couplers meet all MIL-STD-1553 electrical requirements and are manufactured using North Hills transformers and MIL-R-39007 Level S resistors.  The couplers can be purchased with internal termination to further reduce installation complexity and parts count.  Ultra Compact couplers can also be provided with patch cords to be assembled on site as a complete harness assembly ready for installation. 

These couplers can be space qualified for use in satellites or launchers, and is North Hills' latest addition to an extensive line of connection and measurement devices.
