Release Date: Monday, May 20, 2013

WESTERLY, RI, —The new Elite Series Dry-Mate Connector from AMETEK SCP represents a technical leap forward and breakthrough in terms of design and performance. The connector is the first fully modular dry-mate connector that is ISO/API compliant. Its modular design permits the incorporation of interchangeable electrical or optical circuits with exceptional high performance.

SCP, a world leader in underwater cable and connector solutions for military and commercial applications, has taken the connector’s modular design a step further, making it possible to use either a standard hard cable termination or a pressure-balanced, oil-filled configuration.

Among the other improvements incorporated into the connector’s design is an option for a fiber optic connection that incorporates angled polished contacts. These higher-performing contacts help satisfy an increased demand in the oil and gas industry for distributed sensing systems that are part of intelligent well system designs as well as other emerging distributed acoustic and temperature monitoring systems.

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 annual sales of more than $3.3 billion.
