16 Series

5-50 kVDC Multi-Conductor Cable Assemblie

The 16 series cable assemblies are offered in multiple shell sizes, and multiple insert configurations. This series is designed for high voltage applications where high reliability is required in a wide range of temperature, altitude, and environment conditions. Termination of the connectors to the cable is a unique Caton technique utilizing vacuum degassed two part silicone RTV. This process together with the Caton designed silicone rubber tapered inserts, provide a termination impervious to the surrounding environment. The shell design is the proven MIL-C-5015 die cast aluminum available in a variety of sizes, finishes and plating options.
