PAVE-Mate I is a bulkhead, multi-contact connector with various styles of high performance military or industrial aluminum, plastic or stainless steel shell disconnects that can be disconnected on either side of the bulkhead. Signal, power, coaxial, thermocouple and fiber optic versions are available for high vacuum use or up to low or high pressure applications. PAVE-MATE I style connectors have dual sided disconnects with male pins on hex side and female sockets on thread side.
Both mating connector plugs are normally supplied. Loose crimp contacts for the mating plugs are typically supplied (contact crimp, insertion and removal tools are available) though connector series mating plugs with either 3102 or 3112 in the below PAVE description codes can usually be available in fixed solder contacts. Loose crimp contacts can usually be soldered if done neatly.
In addition, connectors with 3112 in the below PAVE description codes can also be ordered with NO silicone rubber materials for the bulkhead and mating connector plugs on either one bulkhead side (typically high vacuum/jam nut side) or on both sides of the bulkhead for critical high vacuum, very low outgassing requirements. Such silicone free mating plugs will not have pin arrangement lettering however. Check with a PAVE sales engineer for ordering information and correct part #’s to order such silicone free connectors.
Seal Integrity PAVE-Seal® PAVE-Mate®
While all PAVE products will comply with helium leak rating from <10-6 cc/sec to 10-9 cc/sec (air equivalent) depending upon design, PAVE also uses more cost effective air bubble in fluid leak testing typically at 80 psi (5 bar). Special high pressure testing up to 10 k psi (600 bar) is also available.
