CONNECTOR ENHANCEM E N T S
INTRODUCTION
As part of our continuous improvement process the pb^`lk® Group consistently reviews it's product ranges through both customer feedback and internal improvements. It is via these processes that pb^`lk® identified a design enhancement to the jáÅêçtbqJ`lk connector
ranges. This new design improvement has now been implemented not only across this connector range, but also the new jáÅêçtbqJ`lk
péäáíSeries.
DESIGN FEATURES
The design change is associated with the Male Pin connectors only and has been introduced to improve and extend the life of the connectors by decreasing the stresses that are applied to the sealing interface between the male contact pin and the sealing rubber around the pin
during the connectors mate and de-mate cycles.
The newly designed male contact has a "Lead in" as part of the contact pin itself which replaces the current rubber lead in. The introduction
of the new pin removes any potential wear to the sealing interface between the male contact pin and the sealing rubber around the pin which
may occur with many repeated make and breaks of the connector pairs. The new pin will maintain the full connector sealing properties and
will provide a greater life expectancy of the connectors.
The incorporation of this design change to the Male Pin connectors will not affect the existing Female Socket connectors currently being used
by pb^`lk®'s customers and therefore full intermateability will be maintained. In addition, pb^`lk® would also like to confirm that pricing
will also not be affected.
TESTING
This new pin design concept has been fully tested and has been utilized in both the rJj^qb and SEA-MATE connector ranges for a number of years.
MCAT ATTACHABLE jáÅêç tbq`lk
Due to global demand to terminate standard rubber molded connectors onto specialized or customer furnished cable, pb^ `lk Global
Production has introduced an MCAT version of the successful jáÅêçtbqJ`lk connector series.
This new connector can be terminated virtually anywhere eliminating the need for shipping bulky long lengths of cable. In addition the end
user is able to produce a reduced length termination without the need for additional cable splices and have one continuous cable diameter for
the total length of the cable.
The MCAT connector is fully inter-mateable with like configured jáÅêçtbqJ`lk inline and bulkhead connectors. For further information and
for cable jacket materials that can be accommodated please contact pb^`lk®.

UNDERWATER ELECTRICAL WET-MATE CONNECTORS
INTRODUCTION
The jáÅêç tbqJ`lk connector series was developed to provide all
the features of pb^ `lk®’s ^iiJtbq connector series, but in a
miniature, industry standard configuration. The small size offers the
same flexibility and reliability as our rubber molded connectors, in a
light-weight and user friendly model.
APPLICATIONS
Possible applications include: underwater television and lights, diver
communications, ROV systems, submersibles, towed-array cable
systems, current meters, animal migration research and food processing equipment.
The jáÅêçtbqJ`lk series allows for smaller through ports in a pressure vessel and a greater density of conductors in a compact area.
The smaller cables decrease the overall weight and drag of an ROV
or other vessel. This connector range is wet-mateable and therefore
enables connections to be made underwater, on-deck or in any
weather condition.
AVAILABILITY
The jáÅêç tbqJ`lk series is a stocked item, which ensures quick
delivery (in reasonable quantities) of standard configurations.
Custom cable lengths are available upon request. Shorting plugs are
available should you require the ability of looping together 'like' circuits for testing purposes within the dummy. Pin to pin shorting
details need to be supplied at time of order placement.
MATERIALS
The jáÅêç tbqJ`lk is made from a proprietary grade Neoprene.
The standard locking sleeves are Delrin® (DuPont trademark for
Acetal Resin), which is lightweight, durable and user-friendly in the
working environment (Brass and Stainless Steel are also available
upon request).
TESTING
The jáÅêç tbqJ`lk range has undergone complete Qualification
testing including low pressure soak tests, full mate/de-mate and high
pressure cycling to 10,000 psi.
SPECIAL ASSEMBLIES
pb^ `lk® maintains all facilities necessary to furnish complete
underwater and environmental electrical connector/cable systems,
including Research and Development, Engineering, Manufacturing,
Quality Control and Pressure Testing.
As well as supplying our standard ‘off-the-shelf’ items, we have the
capability to design and manufacture SPECIAL CUSTOMIZED
CONNECTORS AND CABLE ASSEMBLIES to suit your individual
needs.
pb^`lk® also prides itself with the ability to perform stringent quality conformance testing procedures which are in accordance with the
MIL-SPEC programs.

BULKHEAD CONNECTOR (BC): The BC may be installed using one
of two methods. The preferred method is to spotface the bulkhead surface and thread the hole, then screw the connector by means of a nut
and washer. The bored hole (or threaded hole) should be free of any
“burrs” and all o-ring sealing surfaces polished to a number 32 finish.
Lubricate the BC o-ring with an appropriate silicone spray or grease
before installing. This lubrication should be applied to form an adequate film. Excessive lubrication is detrimental to the operation of the
connector. Bulkhead nut, if used, should not be over-torqued.
IN-LINE CONNECTOR: Lubricate the sealing areas around the male
pins, using an appropriate silicone spray, or grease lightly.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The tbqJ`lk and jáÅêçtbqJ`lk connectors require very little maintenance. They are designed to be used in harsh environments and
thus limited amounts of dirt and grit do not affect their performance.
It is recommended that, upon disconnecting or retrieving the system,
the connectors be cleaned, to storage (if possible, remate with dummy
plugs). Prior to deployment the following maintenance procedure is
recommended:
1. Demate the connector set.
2. Flush connector interface with fresh water (deionized water if available), remove all dirt, grit and grease.
3. Inspect for damage in sealing areas, excessive corrosion, debonding of the cable and connector interface and cuts in the cable
jacket.
4. Apply thin film of dilectric compound (DC) grease, silicon based, to
sealing areas of male connector and across the face of the female
connector*. If the BC is removed from it’s housing then replace
facial o-ring and make sure that o-rings are lubricated and in good
condition.
5. Mate the connector halves, wipe away any excess grease off the
interface line of the mated set.
* CAUTION: The use of some oil-based propellants in spray cans can
cause conductivity problems in neoprene.

Avoid sharp bends in cables. Cables subjected to vibration or exposed
to seawater drag should be adequately clamped to prevent conductor
fatigue and ultimate failure.
