All Flex Gains NASA Heater Qualification


Reading time ( words)

all_flex.jpgAll Flex has recently been added to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center’s Qualified Parts List (QPL) for Thermofoil Heaters built in accordance with GSFC S311-P-079E specifications. All Flex can design custom heaters to meet these stringent guidelines or to a customer’s specific need to include space rated thermistors, wire harnesses, and connectors. The complete QPL can be found here: https://nepp.nasa.gov/index.cfm/12832

Customers may decide to qualify their design by similarity to All Flex 20067 or 20068 part numbers; these parts were approved by GSFC. When a customer chooses to “qualify by similarity” they avoid the cost and time associated with the Qualification Inspection Table I group I-IV of the GSFC S-311-P-079E and all heaters delivered will receive Table II Quality of Conformation Inspection. See the GSFC S-311-P-079E specification for more details about Table I and Table II inspections at https://nepp.nasa.gov/files/22932/S-311-P-079E.pdf

All Flex also makes industrial grade heaters for aviation, medical, scientific and military in addition to Kapton heaters for space flight applications. The differences between an industrial grade heater and a heater built to GSFC S-311-P-079E zreceiving Table II testing is outlined below. 

Both types of Kapton heaters can be supplied with:

  • Space Rated Thermistors
  • Wire Harnesses
  • Connectors
