    Military Connectors

    Norfolk Naval Shipyard brought to the rep’s attention a few ideas to improve our welding cables and lines. TPC picked up the ball and designed products that we now use at the Navy Yard every day.

    HDLC Series Connectors

    The most advanced line of connectors available according to MIL-C-5015 and VG95234. The HDLC connector series were developed specifically to meet the demands of industrial environments. The HDLC series shares the same shell dimensions, contact layouts, and electrical performance characteristics as the common MIL-C-5015 connectors with application engineered features such as three-quarter reverse bayonet coupling system, rubber covered coupling ring, black zinc shell plating and a superior sealing and strain relief system. Available in sizes from #18 to #1/0.

    Features

    • THREE QUARTER TURN REVERSE BAYONET COUPLING SYSTEM — Easy to connect and disconnect, positive locking indent prevents accidental uncoupling.

    • RUBBER COVERED COUPLING RING — Protects the nut against damage from impact, provides a large non-slip gripping surface for easy mating.

    • ENVIRONMENTALLY SEALED — The inserts of the HDLC are environmentally sealed to protect the connection against oil, water and chemical contamination. The endbells are sealed with a tapered grommet sized to the specific cable providing a waterproof seal.

    • MESH STRAIN RELIEF — Each assembly end comes with a double weave strain relief for pull-out protection as well as flex relief for the cable.

    • FIRST MATE — LAST BREAK CONTACT — An extended ground pin insures first mate/last break contact for safety.

    • MACHINED CONTACTS — All contacts are machined, not stamped. This produces a heavier industrial contact that is less likely to crack or break during the crimp process.

    • SUPERIOR SHOCK AND VIBRATION RESISTANCE — Each connector contains a wave spring and wave spring washer designed to absorb shock and vibration in the coupler before it reaches the contacts. This helps to eliminate pin elongation and damage that may cause arcing and connector failure.

    • AVAILABLE IN AWG SIZES RANGING FROM #18 TO #1/0 — The HDLC connector accepts a wide range of Gauge sizes and configurations to meet your connector needs.
