||SubconnŽ Circular Series
SubconnŽ circular series of underwater pluggable electrical connectors
was introduced in the late 1970's and today is the leading industrial
standard in all marine related markets. The circular series is
available in three shell sizes from 2 to 16 contacts rated at
600 V from 5 to 15 Amp. When correctly maintained, the connectors
are rated to in excess of 500 underwater matings while still retaining
the minimum 200 megaohm insulation resistance.The complete range
of inline and bulkhead connectors with associated locking sleeves
and dummies are available with special materials
||SubconnŽ Low Profile Series
low profile series was introduced to satisfy demands, from ROV,
camera and oceanographic instrument manufacturers, where space
was limited or a flush connection was required. The low profile
connectors are available in 2 to 9 contacts rated at 600 V from
5 to 15 Amp and like the circular series are rated at over 500
wet matings.The connectors are available in all bulkhead and inline
configurations and a snap on locking strap can be supplied.
||SubconnŽ Micro Series
new Subconn "Micro" connector is a development of the
well proven standard circular Subconn series. The product has
been produced in response to an industry need for a compact, easily
assembled and reliable connector for use on equipment such as
Oceanographic Sensors, Electronics Bottles, Diving Equipment and
general industrial applications. The Micro series is available
in the same configurations as the Standard Circular range, i.e.
inline plugs and receptacles and bulkheads with either pins or
||SubconnŽ Power Connectors
connectors are available for battery charging, welding and three
phase power. The battery charge connector is 2 contact rated at
600 V at 30 Amp. The welding connector is a single contact with
a cable size adaptor rated at 1.000 V, 250 Amp. The four contact
power connector is rated at 2.500 V at 65 Amp and the in
line connector can be overmoulded to a customer specified cable.
The power connector is also available in a flange mount configuration.
||SubconnŽ OptoLink Fiber Optic & Hybrid
range provides a series of options combining both electrical and
optical connections within the one shell. The connectors utilize
expanded beam technology to ensure a rugged and reliable solution
for harsh environments. The emphasis of the design centres on
modular construction in order to allow the widest number of options
to be offered without changing shell sizes. Both Multi and Single
mode fibers can be terminated and strain terminations included
if required. Comprehensive optical test equipment is available
to ensure optimum performance of all products.
||SubconnŽ Metal Shell Series
bulkhead series is constructed using a stainless steel flange
or through bulkhead industry standard housing with a standard
SubconnŽ insert configuration. The connectors are extremely rugged
and are ideally suited for ROV and other applications where the
connectors are vunerable to physical damage. The series mates
with existing SubconnŽ inline connectors and dummies using similar
locking sleeves. There are 4 standard shell sizes with 2 to 16
contacts rated 600 V at 5 15 Amp.
Subconn® Ethernet Connectors
This first high speed underwater communications system with true Ethernet type performance is based on industry standard SubConn® connector systems that are tried and trusted in the underwater technology industry. The SubConn® Underwater Ethernet Cable can emulate Cat5e performance and can operate in full ocean depth applications. The connector series, with proven pin and socket design, has been reconfigured to maximise data flow. The mating bulkhead connectors have Cat6 cable for leads with a specially designed interface that eliminates cross talk and noise. Also available with additional conductors for transmitting power.
The standard penetrator series is based on industry standard flange and bulkhead mount stainless steel bodies. There are four shell sizes, allowing an extensive combination of products. Both in-line and right angle designs are available in polyurethane and neoprene.
original Subconn design has frequently been used as the basis
for a wide variety of specially designed connectors and these
have often become standards in themselves. Design changes range
from simple mold shape modifications to the use of custom designed
housings and exotic materials.
