Spectrum's PRODUCTS are engineered mission capable.
Capitalizing on dedicated research and development of aerospace instruments, Spectrum has a continuous record of successfully producing state-of-the-art crash-resistant breakaway valves, pressure switches, indicators and hydraulic subassemblies. Spectrum has earned 30 U.S. and foreign patents protecting its broad product line.
2300 - Pressure Switch
Series 2300 Pressure Switches
provide miniaturized instrumentation for detecting either pressure gain, or loss in pressurized systems. Designed to aerospace quality standards, these units provide high reliability even after 1,000,000 switching cycles. Rugged piston-actuated snap action switch automatically resets after the pressure correction.
2335 - Gauge Pressure Switch
Series 2335 Pressure Switches
provide reliable, diaphragm-actuated snap action switching in a miniature package of stainless steel with all-welded construction.
2370 - Economy Pressure Switch
Presently successfully utilized in many military and commercial type fire extinguishing systems where Halon 1301 is the active medium,
Series 2370 Economy Pressure Switches
provide reliable snap-action switching in a miniature package of lightweight anodized aluminum construction.
4300 - Absolute Pressure Switch
Series 4300 Pressure Switches
provide accurate and reliable switching over a pressure range of 4 to 250 psia. As an absolute pressure switch, the 4300 Series is hermetically sealed for life and is designed to meet critical MIL-Spec environments including shock, vibration and temperature cycling.
5000 - Differential Pressure Switch
Series 5000 Differential Pressure Switches
provide reliable snap action switching in a miniature package while retaining dependability for critical applications. Incorporating a highly flexible elastomeric diaphragm, the compact 5000 Series switches can be set from 2" H2O to 60 p.s.i.d. or higher for specified applications.
7000 - Vacuum Pressure Switch
Series 7000 Pressure Switches
provide reliable and repeatable snap-action switching in response to vacuum pressure in a ruggedly constructed miniature type package.
9000 - Position Switch
Series 9000 Position Switches
retain all of the proven pressure switch design features (snap action, spring calibration, environmental sealing) with a hardened stainless steel shaft as position sensor. Constructed of either stainless steel or anodized aluminum, these switches can be provided in a wide variety of envelopes with varying spring forces for each application.
22000 - Hydraulic Manifold Assembly
Series 22000 Hydraulic Manofold Assemblies
are custom designed or manufactured per customer specifications. Manifolds can be either machined components only or complete assemblies including check valves, pressure switches, servovalves, solenoids or filters.
14000 - Crash-Resistant Breakaway Fuel Valve
Spectrum introduces a new and improved series of
BALVAC® self-sealing breakaway fuel valves
that are designed to close upon separation and seal off fuel lines in response to structurally induced shear, tension or bending forces.These patented valves are installed where fuel lines connect to tanks, between tanks, at firewalls, and other points where hard landing can cause fuel system leaks.
14900 - Frangible Quick Disconnect
Frangible quick disconnect assemblies
retain all of the proven spring-loaded self-rotating breakaway ball valve design features, while adding a manual reset "quick-disconnect" option. This feature allows rapid installation or removal of additional fuel tanks/bladders or other extended range fuel system components, with no loss of pressurization and while maintaining all frangible system requirements.
