SubConn Penetrator series

The SubConn® Penetrator series is a fixed installation alternative to inline and bulkhead connectors. SubConn® Penetrators are primarily used for applications placing emphasis on direct signal and power feedthrough above the flexibility provided by a mateable connector interface.

SubConn® Penetrators are manufactured from chloroprene rubber and based on industry-standard bulkhead threads which can be delivered in different materials. The series comprises five to six standard shell sizes in straight or right-angle configurations.

This allows for an extensive combination of solutions. SubConn® Penetrator designs are not strictly limited to the standard versions and custom solutions can be delivered. For instance, it
is possible to combine power and signal within a single unit.

All SubConn® Penetrators are water blocked to 800 bar and are often delivered with dedicated SubConn® cables made from flexible
and water-resistant chloroprene rubber or polyurethane (PUR).
