CB-PTL Bulkhead Connector Assembly Installation


NexSens CB-Series buoy data wells capped with CB-PTL pass through lids may optionally have UW plug ports replaced with bulkhead cable connector assemblies.

Connector Types

The CB-PTL comes standard with a UW-6 power bulkhead cable assembly (UW6-BULK) pre-installed. Wiring instructions for connection of this cable to user-supplied electronics are available here.

The RF bulkhead connector assembly (RF-BULK) allows 3rd party modems to be integrated inside CB-Series buoy data wells capped with CB-PTL pass through lids or blank lids with user-drilled holes. It consists of an N-style female connector integrated on the bulkhead for external antenna connection, and 1m pigtail cable with SMA male connector for connection to a modem placed inside the watertight data well. Installation instructions for an RF-BULK cable assembly can be found here.

UW sensor bulkhead connector assemblies (UW-BULK) allow for pluggable, watertight connection of sensor cables to user-supplied electronics in the data well. Sensor cables must have a factory-installed UW connector for connection to the UW-BULK bulkhead receptacle. Installation instructions for a UW-BULK cable assembly can be found here.
