    I am looking for a bulkhead connector whihc is detachable from the flat face (circular) bulkhead measuring abiur 5″ in diameter. The cableand the connector must carriy 2 x 12AWG Copper stranded ppower wires,2 x 18 AWG Copper stranded communications wires, two (2) twinned fibre optics cables used for signal and digital video transmission. Depth rating will be ca. 30 feet Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. BTW: we are not limited to usingonly one connector.We COULD use a coupe of more specific ones. Many thanks in anticipation of your advice.

    Hi Clarence,

    We need to suggest either our flange or bulk head to cable mount 900 series. This is a 4 pole connector series that has 10-13AWG allowable size contacts. For your 18AWG conductors you’ll need to add a ferrule or adaptor to have inserted into the two communication contacts.
    Below part numbers for you to review:

    PX0941/04/S (flange mount)
    PX0931/04/S (front panel mount)

    Choose from one of the above for your chassis

    PX0911/04/P (cable mount)~ this item will mate to either one of the two above

    As for your signal and video connections we suggest our 6000 Series duplex connection. Below are the two series mating part numbers. Because there are multiple options to choose from I’ve added the data sheet link below it for further guidance:

    PXF6050 series (Flex Cable Connector)
    PXF6051 series (Flex In Line Cable Connector)
    PXF6052 series (Chassis mount connector)

    The above suggestions would make this a two connector solution as we currently do not have a series that includes all these conductors into one housing.

    Any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask away.

    Hope this helps,

    Good morning,
    North Paulding Robotics – Explorer Team
    Team Captain – Glen Lewis (
    1 of PX0941/03/P
    1 of PX0921/03/P
    2 of PX0911/03/S
    3 of PX0401/014/4S
    3 of PX0400/001/4P

    We received our order with the following items:
    Sample PX0911/03/9 @ 2
    Sample PX0941/03/P
    Sample PX0921/03/P
    We should be able to use connectors that come from the 4000 series Buccaneer line. We can use the Rear Panel Mounting Connector PXP4013 2 pole socket, the Inline Flex Cable Connector PXP4011 2 pole socket, and two of the Flex Cable Connector PXP4010 2 pole plug. All parts would preferably be the solder contact variant and come with the required accessories to house two 18 gauge wires. Should these parts not be available, equivalent parts of similar size from another series would be usable. If they need more information about the parts please let me know.

    Please let me know if we can arrange to swop out parts or if you have suggestions?
    Thank you
    Glen Lewis
