CONNECTOR COVERS

Connector Covers

Problem: Corrosion of topside electrical connectors have resulted in the development of a number of covering systems, none of which permit access and re-closure. Maintenance invariably results in damage to connectors and cables.

Solution: MTTC, in conjunction with RayChem, Inc., conducted extensive environmental and military specification testing on RayOLON, a commercially available roll-on covering. The product passed all required tests.

 

Benefits

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

Minimum annual:      $250 K

Minimum 15 Year:   $3,750 K

 

Fleet Impact: Sailors will be able to remove and restore equipment quickly without damaging and/or replacing cables and connectors. Connectors will be protected from the harsh maritime environment and require less maintenance.

Status: Complete

 

Based on the results of the environmental and specification testing, the Navy has determined that extensive shipboard testing is needed. Under separate funding, the U.S. Navy has procured 4,000 RayOLON covers to be tested on  20 different ships of  various classes.

Applications:

Shore Power Connection Cables

All Shipboard topside and internal connectors

All re-enterable requirements
