The ever-increasing complexity and capability of automotive electronic systems requires connector components with the highest reliability. The Dietze Group has served the Automotive industry for decades with products ranging from lead-in wires for automotive lighting to high-reliability terminal pins for the vehicle electrical system.
Aerospace and military electronic devices have special requirements for temperatures, lifecycle and harsh-environment capabilities. The Dietze Group serves this industry with customer-tailored, high-performance hermetic seals and connector pin components.
Assembly of printed circuit boards has become highly automated and optimized. Companies in this industry require solutions that have a perfect combination of high reliability and sustainable economic efficiency.
Lead-in wires provide a core function in electric light sources by providing the hermetic seal in all types of light sources, as well as the connection between the cathode or burner and the base of the lamp. The Dietze Group has been the market leader for lead wires for more than nine decades, serving the entire customer bandwidth from consumer lighting to automotive, from halogen to high-pressure discharge vessels, from miniature lamp and electronic starters and fuses in electronic ballasts to innovative applications, such as projector lamps and professional flash photography. Recently, LED applications that require press-fit board connections and hybrid connectors have emerged.
Ranging from oil & gas all the way to nuclear, devices in the Energy sector are exposed to harsh environmental conditions. Electronics and sensors often require hermetic seals and feedthroughs to shield against high-pressure and corrosive media. Using glass-to-metal sealing technology, this hermetic package can be achieved reliably.
High-end refrigeration products, such as hermetic and semi-hermetic compressors, often feature hermetic encapsulations. Our power feedthrough plates, as well as sight glasses, are developed specifically to serve our partners in this industry.
Hermetic sealing technology is used for a variety of applications in process analytics. We provide our customers with hermetic sapphire windows for optical instrumentation equipment and with autoclavable connectors for various medical process sensors. Glass-to-metal sealing technology enables a lifecycle durability and reliability that cannot be matched by other options.
Hermetic packaging is used for a variety of sensor applications, either at the working principle or as an interface between sensor and evaluation electronics. Example applications: Piezoresistive gauges, Pirani and cold-cathode vacuum gauges, optical sensors, hermetic M12 connectors.
