  • PAVE-Mate® I

    PAVE-Mate® I hermetically sealed multi pin circular electrical feedthrough connectors are dual sided electrical male and female contact receptacles or plug connectors on each side of the bulkhead for low or high pressures or low or high vacuums. Signal, power, coaxial contacts, 2 – 128 contacts, #4 AWG - #26 AWG gold, silver or tin plated copper alloy contacts, RJ45 Cat 5e Cat 6 Ethernet, firewire, TBFH, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, MDR, or Pushthru for nuclear or laboratory glove boxes. Most listed connectors are based on Mil-DTL-26482, 38999, 5015 contact arrangements plus others. Voltage rating vary, typical 600-1000V and higher. Bulkhead mounting styles include jam nut o-ring, NPT or custom flange type, o-ring or laser, electron beam weld. Connector plug coupling or mating styles are bayonet, threaded or push-pull coupling depending on the connector series.

    Since copper alloy contacts are used instead of the much higher resistance Kovar pins found in other hermetic connectors, PAVE hermetic connectors offer much better electrical conductivity and amperage capability also with high dielectric or voltage ratings. The PAVE hermetic electrical connectors are available in all contact arrangements for military specification electric connectors plus commercial version electrical connectors. PAVE also offers an improved EMI shielding option where the connectors’ aluminum shells can have electrical continuity from one side to the other side of the bulkhead to carry shielding signals while also electrically isolated from the bulkhead.

    Leak testing can be either vacuum helium test or high pressure N2 leak testing as required. The mating connector plugs, crimp or solder contacts, are normally supplied. PAVE-Mate® hermetic connectors are very robust and can be tested to pressures range from 80 psi to +3000 psi and vacuum up to 10^-8 Torr and temperatures from -100C to 200C depending upon the hermetic connector design, o-ring compound used and matching the customer’s requirements. The hermetic connectors are also pressure or vacuum bi-directional either in the mated or unmated condition, though high pressures may be more limited in one direction. Hermetic leak rates are as low as 10^-9cc/sec. PAVE hermetically sealed connectors are NASA approved low vacuum outgassing rates and resistant to all types of fuels, gases and most chemicals and radiation. Standard hermetic connector designs are listed below and custom hermetic connector designs are also available. In a hurry? See our quick ship hermetic connectors listing.

    For PAVE-MATE Type 27466, 27508, 99920, 99940 bayonet, threaded or push-pull disconnects based on MIL-C-38999 Series 1, 2, 3, or 4 (PAVE Catalog page 16), click here.

    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.
