BIRNS Aquamate LLC manufactures underwater electrical connectors, cable assemblies and cable terminations for offshore diving, oceanographic, seismic exploration and defense applications. The company produces a range of standard industry connectors such as the 5500 Series, SC, MC, LP, FAWL/FAWM and Rubber Molded. The firm also produces custom designs for special connector solutions.
BIRNS Aquamate Connectors are suited for medium power or signal use, or when weight and/or mechanical abuse are considerations. This series is molded of high-insulation neoprene that may be mated while wet or underwater. Aquamate connectors are also suitable for most nonmagnetic requirements. Circular and Low Profile formats are available, as are our 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.
