Metal shell subsea connectors
The TrustLink Metal Shell (MS) series of subsea connectors from MacArtney was launched at the recent Ocean Business event.
TrustLink includes a range of power and signal connectivity solutions for critical subsea and offshore applications, in metal shell housings.
Based on advanced technology, rugged materials and MacArtney connectivity knowhow, the TrustLink MS series is manufactured from stainless steel and comes in three shell sizes compatible with industry standards. Due to their rugged reliability, these high-density connectors are suitable for the harshest of marine environments and the compact modular design is advantageous where limited space is a factor.
The TrustLink MS connectors are provided in several configurations ranging from 4 to 37 electrical contacts. The series thereby offers excellent flexibility to operators of subsea equipment and systems. All TrustLink MS connectors comply with the EN 60664-1 requirements for clearance and creepage distances, meeting safety standards for pollution degree 2 within a microenvironment. All metal parts are provided with an anti-seizing surface.
All connectors and bulkheads are supplied unterminated. However, custom moulding and termination by MacArtney is available from MacArtney’s global stock that includes a large range of standard MacArtney cables.
The TrustLink series allows the same housing to be mounted with either a male or a female insert making it a very versatile connector.
The connectors are resistant to open face water pressure to prevent an incident such as a ruptured tether cable at depth causing further water ingress into an ROV’s electronic systems.
