Transformers, coils and chokes are essential components for energy transmission and storage in power electronics. ASP manufactures approximately 4000 – 5000 individual space magnetics per year; lot sizes range from 1 to 1000 pieces. All ASP magnetics are manufactured according to internal process descriptions and are 100% tested in accordance with MIL-STD 981.

When used in space applications, these components exhibit the highest levels of precision, reliability and durability.

During production, we perform electrical tests and thermal cycles. The final step is the visual assessment and documentation of the product. If required, we perform further steps such as a burn-in test or destructive tests (Microsectioning) or non-destructive tests (X-ray test).

ASP looks back on the experience of tens of thousands of manufactured chokes, coils and transformers. We can demonstrate space heritage in numerous worldwide major space missions.

We offer complete flexibility in design, testing, qualification requirements and lot size. High voltage magnetics can be molded in with ASP epoxy to provide the required insulation and thermal conductivity.

ASP magnetics meet the following requirements according to an in-house qualification campaign:

  • MIL-STD-1580B, par. External Visual Inspection
  • MIL-STD-1580B, par. Cross Sectioning
  • MIL-STD-981B, App. C Radiographic Inspection
  • MIL-STD-202, Meth 301 Voltage-Check of Dielectric Medium
  • MIL-STD-202, Meth 302 Isolation Test
  • MIL-STD-202, Meth 108 Life Test
