New Flat ALL-WET water blocked underwater electrical connectorSEA CON Global Production, specialists and industry leaders in the field of underwater electrical connectors unveils the water blocked version of the Flat ALL-WET (FAW) marine electrical connector series.

Originally designed for installation onto an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), this new connector provides a protection system to prevent water penetration should the connector body be severely damaged, therefore preventing catastrophic failure of the equipment.

Mounting details are the same as the standard FAW bulkhead underwater electrical connector, however instead of solder buckets this new version has wires molded into the GRE insert therefore providing excellent protection and avoiding soldering breaks in the field. This also reduces the pigtail bend radius making it ideal for tight or reduced spaces.

Manufactured from Neoprene with a 316 Stainless Steel shell and brass gold plated contacts this new addition to the ALL-WET underwater electrical connector series is currently available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 configurations although others are available upon request. Pressure rated to 10,000 psi (mated)/5,000 psi (open face), this connector has a voltage rating of 500 VDC and an amperage rating of up to 5.6 amps.
