The MacArtney Group, Denmark, has announced the introduction of its TrustLink metal shell (MS) connector series to the global market.
The TrustLink MS series includes cutting-edge power and signal connectivity solutions for critical subsea and offshore applications, according to the company. “Utilising the latest advanced technology, rugged materials and MacArtney’s connectivity know-how,” the firm said, “the TrustLink MS series is manufactured from stainless steel and comes in three shell sizes compatible with industry standards.”
“Suitable for the harshest of marine environments due to their rugged reliability and high-density, these compact, modular designed connectors are easy to use and are designed to fit where limited space is a factor,” MacArtney added.
TrustLink MS connectors are available in several configurations and can range from four to 37 electrical contacts with male or female insert options available within the same metal shell housing. All metal parts are diamond polished to provide an anti-seizing surface and a high-quality finish.
The connectors comply with the EN 60664-1 requirements for clearance and creepage distances and meet safety standards for a pollution degree 2 within a microenvironment.
“In line with MacArtney’s high standards for product performance,” said the company, “TrustLink connectors are thoroughly tested at every stage of production to ensure full integrity, functionality, and first-rate performance from the surface to seabed.”
All connectors and bulkheads are supplied unterminated. However, custom moulding and termination by MacArtney is available from its global stock that includes a range of standard MacArtney cables.
