The TrustLink Metal Shell (MS) series includes a range of cutting-edge power and signal connectivity solutions for critical subsea and offshore applications, in metal shell housing.

Based on advanced technology, rugged materials and MacArtney connectivity know-how, the TrustLink MS series is manufactured from stainless steel and comes in three shell sizes compatible with industry standards. Due to
their rugged reliability, these high-density connectors are suitable for the harshest of marine environments and the compact modular design is advantageous where limited space is a factor.

The TrustLink MS connectors, provided in several configurations, ranges from 4 to 37 electrical contacts. The series thereby offers excellent flexibility to operators of subsea equipment and systems.

Manufactured as standard in stainless steel the TrustLink connector has a life expectancy of 25 years with cathodic protection and regular maintenance. Connectors manufactured in titanium have a life expectancy of 25 years in a subsea environment with no additional protection.

All TrustLink MS connectors comply with the EN 60664-1 requirements for clearance and creepage distances, meeting safety standards for pollution degree 2 within a microenvironment. All metal parts are provided with an anti-seizing surface.

All connectors and bulkheads are supplied unterminated. However, custom moulding and termination by MacArtney is available from MacArtney’s global stock that includes an extensive range of standard MacArtney cables.

Reversed male/female inserts
The TrustLink series allows mounting of either a male or a female insert in the same housing, making it a very versatile connector.

Trustworthy testing
Thoroughly tested at every stage during production, all TrustLink connectors ensure full integrity, functionality, and first-rate performance from the surface to seabed.
