PATC-1000 Series connectors from AMETEK SCP, a world leader in underwater cable and connector solutions for military and commercial applications, offer excellent high-temperature and high-pressure performance along with surprising toughness and strength under harsh operating conditions.
PATC-1000 Series high-performance PEEK™ (PolyEtherEtherKetone) connectors have a number of advantages versus conventional metal, ceramic and glass connectors, including a significant reduction in weight and superior chemical resistance under a broad range of operating conditions.
The performance characteristics of PATC-1000 Series connectors can be tailored to specific applications, while achieving equivalent or improved mechanical behavior versus conventional metal connectors. In addition, they offer greater design and prototyping flexibility and typically don't require secondary operations such as coatings, post machining and final assembly.
The PATC-1000 connectors are configurable with single or multiple high-density contacts. They have outstanding long-term creep and fatigue resistance over a broad temperature range, low flammability and smoke emission characteristics, and good electrical properties. These hermetically sealed connectors are helium leak tested to less than 10-8 sccm. They are ideally suited for such demanding applications as down hole tools, oil and gas well completion systems, and aerospace and military applications.
AMETEK SCP is a leader in custom electrical and optical connectors, cable assemblies and hull penetrators that are widely found on the U.S. submarine fleet as well as many other of the world's navies. AMETEK SCP also provides electrical interconnect solutions for a wide range of extreme environments, including undersea, oil field, nuclear and aerospace that draw upon its extensive knowledge of submarine systems and expertise in electrical connector and data transmission technologies.
AMETEK SCP is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with sales of more than $2.5 billion.
