TrustLink Metal Shell Connectors

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 are provided in several con- figurations ranging from 4 to 37 electrical contacts. The series thereby offers excellent flexibility to operators of subsea equipment and systems.

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 a large range of standard MacArtney cables.

Reversed male/female inserts
The TrustLink series allows the same housing to be
mounted with either a male or a female insert making it
a very versatile connector.

Trustworthy testing
All TrustLink connectors are thoroughly tested at every stage during production to ensure full integrity, function-
ality, and first-rate performance from surface to seabed.
