Suitable for use in harsh environments such as marine, naval, chemical, oil and gas industries, the Pisces waterproof connector range has been introduced by Intelliconnect. Conventional RF connectors are manufactured from brass and finished with nickel plating or passivated stainless steel. Such finishes are subject to minor degrading in harsh environments and can lead to reducing the connector’s performance over time.
Intelliconnect can now offer their highly successful Pisces waterproof connector range manufactured in nickel aluminium bronze, a high strength alloy with superior corrosion resistance which does not require plating for environmental protection. This material has a highly-durable non-reflective surface, provides a high level of corrosion resistance, is inherently resistant to erosion in desert type environments and provides high resistance to sand and dust as there is no plated surface to degrade.
Typical applications for the corrosion resistant RF connectors include, video and communications systems, industrial control (SCADA) systems, military radar systems, nuclear and chemical systems, marine and naval systems.
Roy Philips commented as MD of Intelliconnect (Europe): “Manufacturing our Pisces range of connectors in nickel aluminium bronze alloy has already proved successful in a very harsh a salt-laden sea spray environment and we expect customers to find them invaluable for a wide number of control and monitoring application in extreme industrial and marine applications where reliability is essential and maintenance difficult and costly.”
