Pultruded tube quick disconnects allow multiple Dragonplate Ā½ā€¯ pultruded carbon fiber tubes to be attached together to form longer tubes or structures. This system is useful for creating long truss structures comprised of shorter sections of up to 8 feet in length. Applications include camera boom arms, lighting fixtures, or inspection tools that break down into easily transportable segments.
The quick disconnect has two adapters that are bonded into the ends of the carbon fiber pultruded tubes. The quick disconnect male and female ends then thread into these aluminum adapters. This quick connector is the rotating version that allows rotation when engaged.
Please note that these components are not meant for high load applications, but instead where lower loads, but high stiffness dominate the design.
