The KIC-DL 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-DL external and internal surfaces undergone appropriate treatment to guarantee electrical isolation and/or corrosion resistance. The KIC-DL provides two Level of Containment (LoC). The KIC-DL 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.
