SEACON’s WET-CON Connector Series
SEACON’s WET-CON connector series was developed to provide inexpensive yet reliable rubber molded connectors that allow the user to make and break connections both on the surface and underwater.
Manufactured using only high quality materials, the WET-CON bulkhead connector’s metal shell is produced using DGS 1043 (UK spec) or CA630 per QQ-C-465 as standard, although other materials are available upon request including PEEK (Polyetheretherketone). Contacts are gold plated to MIL-G-45204 providing superior corrosion resistance.
This connector range is available in a number of configurations ranging from 1 to 16 contacts rated upto 19 amps maximum current (dependent on cable) and a mated pressure rating of upto 20,000 psi.
The WET-CON series is also available with a metal shell body, individual single tail, extended metal shoulder and a water-blocked version which is suitable where there will be reverse pressure applied to the connector i.e. subsea electronics pods or ROV systems. For further information please contact SEACON.
The WET-CON series is suitable for a variety of applications including underwater television and lights, diver communications, ROV systems, recreational submersibles, towed-array cable systems, current meters, animal migration and research and food processing equipment.
