The Smiths Connectors Vortex series is a high reliability connector line used to transmit and receive critical data and power within the Oil & Gas market. Specifically designed for MWD, LWD and wireline applications, the Vortex series is constructed with durable materials including high strength metal alloys, heavy duty polymers and sealing components fabricated from highend elastomeric materials for superior performance in high pressure, high temperature environments. Glass-to-metal and plastic overmolded technologies are leveraged to provide hermetically sealed, pressure rated electrical connectors.
By utilizing the unparalleled performance of Hypertac hyperboloid contact technology, the Vortex series is able to provide high cycle life, low power consumption, low insertion force, reliability under harsh conditions, maximum contact performance and excellent
Hypertac Hyperboloid Contact Technology
- Immunity to fretting corrosion for maximum data resolution
- Faster drilling speeds due to greater immunity to extreme levels of shock (500 G) and vibration
- Low contact resistance results in low heat build up, enabling double the current rating of other contact designs
- Smooth and light self-cleaning action produces little wear of the contact surface
