The Smart Solution for Preventing Contact Damage and Extending the Service Life of Cable Assemblies
Glenair Sav-Con® Connector Savers are designed to protect connectors that are subject to repeated mating and unmating cycles. Sav-Con® Connector Savers prevent costly repair or replacement of expensive connectors and cables while preserving the quality and integrity of connector performance. Sav-Con® Connector Savers take the abuse of repeated connection cycles instead of "black box" or other equipment connectors. Equipment connectors that are mated and unmated frequently during manufacturing, check-out phases and environmental test programs can be protected by Glenair Sav-Con® Connector Savers at considerable savings in time and money.
Glenair Sav-Con® Connector Savers feature one-piece, non-removable pin/socket contacts for maximum reliability and minimum effect on circuit resistance. Each Glenair Sav-Con® Connector Saver series meets the same durability requirements as the Military Specification series with which it mates. The mating portions of the pin-and-socket contacts are in strict compliance with the applicable Military Specification contacts used in each connector series. The one-piece design adds resistance to a circuit equal to a mated pin and socket contact, thus it has little or no effect on sensitive circuits.
When a Sav-Con® Connector Saver is installed between a receptacle and a plug, the effective additional length is less than the length of an equivalent mated plug and receptacle. When using bayonet coupled Sav-Con® Connector Savers, Glenair recommends our Lock Ring design feature in applications where large cable bundles may induce unwanted stress to the coupling mechanism and potential unwanted contact displacement (see this page) for more information.
