KIC-SLA-E3W

 

 

The KIC-SLA-E3W is a further expanded version of KIC-SL-E, featuring semipermeable membrane for gas exchange and a transparent window that allows the direct observation of the experiment inside it. The KIC-SLA-E3W provides an increased internal volume for the experiment accommodation maintaining the same mechanical interfaces and locking mechanism for insertion in small racks. In case the membranes are not required,containers without them can be provided.

KIC-SL

DESCRIPTION

The KIC-SL is made of certified material with excellent mechanical and chemical structural properties. It composed by a main body (where the electrical interface connector is placed) and a cover. The KIC-SL external and internal surfaces undergone appropriate treatment to guarantee electrical isolation and/or corrosion resistance. The KIC-SL provides one Level of Containment (LoC). The KIC-SL is provided with a standardized electrical connector that allows its use on existing facilities or equipment available on ISS. Alternative connectors can be implemented on request. In its standard configuration the KIC-SL is fully qualified for manned missions and for many of the carriers available today including Chinese Shenzhou.

KIC-SLC

DESCRIPTION

The KIC-SLC is the “spider” version of KIC-SL with no electrical interface connector. It provides the same external mechanical interfaces and locking mechanism for insertions in small racks. The KIC-SLC is composed by an empty main body and a lateral cover that can be opened in flight by the crew (if required by the experiment protocol). The KIC-SLC is made of certified material with excellent mechanical and chemical structural properties. External and internal surfaces undergone appropriate treatment to guarantee corrosion resistance. The KIC-SLC (when cover is closed) provides one Level of Containment (LoC). In its standard configuration the KIC-SLC is fully qualified for manned missions and for many of the carriers available today.
