SubConn Expands Connector Range
By Marine Technology Reporter
SubConn introduced SubConn Micro ‘G2’ connectors to streamline its range of micro connectors. The SubConn Micro ‘G2’ connectors have enhanced sealing capability and use a uniform pin size and design. SubConn micro connectors were developed to suit the increasingly more compact design of underwater instruments, equipment and systems. SubConn micro connectors are available with 2 to 21 contacts in the standard in line version and in bulkhead versions, while low profile connectors available with 3, 7 and 9 contacts. The streamlining of the range entails that all connector types are now available with a uniform pin size and design, featuring extensive rubber sealing of each pin along with three o-rings in all female connector sockets - for optimal water sealing capability. SubConn micro connectors are available in four standard shell sizes with contacts rated for 300 V at 5 to 10 A. All SubConn Micro bulkhead connectors come with numbered or color coded Teflon leads.
