Powell now stocking Glenair AquaMouse connectors

Powell Electronics, a supplier of connectors, is now stocking Series 802 AquaMouse connectors from Glenair.

Originally developed for petroleum pipeline inspection equipment, the devices are available in ten sizes from one up to 130 contacts and are equipped with Viton O-rings to withstand exposure to corrosive chemicals and high temperature environments.

Rated for 3500 PSI when mated, these connectors are suitable for demanding geophysical and underwater applications.

The connectors feature high density crimp Mighty Mouse inserts, 316 stainless steel or marine bronze shells and a piston O–ring for hydrostatic sealing. Series 802 insulated wire, panel mount receptacles can be ordered as square flange, in–line or jam–nut versions. The integral shield termination platform or accessory thread offer a variety of strain relief options.

The crimp style gold-plated contacts attach to size 12 up to 30 wires with standard mil spec crimp tools. The connectors are also backfilled with epoxy potting compound. Hermetic glass–sealed connectors come with solder cup contacts (non-removable) or PC tails.

AquaMouse connectors are also 100% tested to meet 1 x 10-7 cc/sec helium leakage.
