Birns Aquamate - Aquamate Connectors
Aquamate logo


Back
Aquamate Connectors are excellent for medium power or signal use, or when weight and/or mechanical abuse are considerations. This rugged series is molded of high-insulation neoprene that may be mated while wet or underwater. Aquamate connectors are also suitable for most non-magnetic requirements.

Circular and Low Profile formats are available, as are Mini-Connector and Flat (FL) and FAWL designs. Male and female connectors are available in bulkhead and in-line configurations. Heat-treated beryllium copper sockets, gold plating, and stainless steel bodies are standard; options include water-blocking and locking sleeves of durable Delrin or heavy-duty Stainless Steel.
Standard Circular

Standard Circular These connectors are the original "workhorse" of the Aquamate series. They are available in pin configurations from 2 to 12 contacts in both Bulkhead and In-Line (cable) configurations.

There are 3 sizes of Aquamate Standard Circular (SC) connectors:

Mini-Connector

Mini-Connector This smaller connector is a more recent addition to the the Aquamate family. They utilize proven Aquamate technology to satisfy today's increasing demand for miniaturization.

Aquamate Mini-Connectors are available in pin configurations from 2 to 16 contacts in both Bulkhead and In-Line (cable) configurations. There are 2 sizes of Aquamate Mini-Connectors:

Size "A"
9 to 16
MC Size "A"


Another important advantage of the MC is that the bulkhead connector has an integral mating thread, so only one locking sleeve is required in most cases.

Flat and FAWL

Flat and FAWL Aquamate Flat (FL) and FAWL Connectors are for applications requiring a miniature, right-angle connector. These wet-mateable handy connectors are available in two types:
    FAWL : for full compatibility with other manufacturers' units.
    FL : incorporates a heavier 2 mm (5/64") pin for more robust duty and greater current load.

Low Profile

Low Profile This series is an excellent choice for applications requiring a low profile, right-angle connector (but for more rugged use and heavier current than the FL series).

The Low Profile utilizes the same #11 pins as the Standard Circular and is available in pin configurations from 2 to 9 contacts. Various insert stem lengths are available for bulkhead connectors.
