The EN4165 SIM module is a platform for several Amphenol-Air LB connector families. This uses a new manufacturing technology which ensures 100% tightness. In contrast to traditional manufacturing, a housing takes the contact system. Then the system is completely filled with a molding compound. In the same process, and in the same molding filling, the grommet, interface seal and - depending upon requirements - peripheral seal is sprayed in, the molding compound completely covers all cavities and seals the contact chamber and facings. The contact chambers are completely separate from one another. This module is released in the MbBN 3330 standard for use in NH90 and PAH2 helicopters.
