The Lowly Strain Relief

Protect a $5,000 phased-array transducer assembly with a $3 strain relief

Few people wake up in the morning and truly appreciate their cable’s strain reliefs. But SNI does.

In fact, in working with our key suppliers, we’ve spent a fair amount of time and money to develop an engineered product that will give our phased-array transducer customers added protection and insurance against cable failures.

Transducers are electro-mechanical devices that see wear and tear thorough normal usage especially with bending and twisting of the cable and its interface to the probe housing. A 128-element array transducer has two ends and 256 solder joints per end or over 500 solder connections per transducer!
