3 Interconnect 3 Introduction Cooper Interconnects Thorkom series of high performance plastic circular connectors are designed to offer easy and reliable mating under harsh conditions. Thorkom connectors and assemblies are ideal for industrial, medical and monitoring applications where a sealed, safe connection are demanded. Thorkom II has the added benefit of being IP68 rated for waterproof applications. Thorkom I Thorkom II

4 Interconnect 4 Thorkom I connectors and assemblies have over 50 years of proven reliability in applications all over the world. The simple push-to-lock and squeeze-to-unlock design provides a sure connection, all in one easy to use, cost effective, interconnect solution. Its ideal for any application where reliability and cost are important.

5 Interconnect Product Features – Thorkom I Receptacles are autoclaveable using an optional high-temperature, thermoplastic material. Receptacles are available in flange mount, bulkhead, straight and right- angle PC board mount. Flexible mating systems: - V-Lok mating - pull to unmate. - P-Lok mating - squeeze to unmate. Durable interconnect - connect/disconnect – 1000 cycles min. Low cost UL approved. Whether they are used on a single-use disposable medical cable or a piece of industrial electronic equipment that will see hundreds of mating cycles, the Thorkom I series can withstand the toughest environments. 5

6 Interconnect Unique Selling Proposition 6 Thorkom I is a low cost, all plastic connector series with an intuitive locking system which has 50 years of real world reliability. Proprietary P-Lok and V-Lok locking mechanism Made from high strength, impact resistant thermoplastics Available in 8 different colors for coding Easy to assemble

7 Interconnect Connector Styles Thorkom I components include many convenient configurations, such as the following options: 7, 12 and 24 position 5 different backshell options Straight and right angle PC board mount receptacles Inline cable plugs and receptacles Square flange and bulkhead panel mount receptacles. 7

9 Interconnect The competition doesnt stand a chance against Thorkom I Competitors THORKOM I Hypertronics D01 Series limitations: The connector body is over three times more expensive Are larger, over 70 percent longer body Have no environmental seal or protection Have more parts, which means longer assembly times LEMO Redel Plastic 1P Series limitations: The connector body is over 12 times more expensive Are longer mated construction Require potting for waterproof protection Are not heat resistant (non-autoclavable) Offer 50 percent less mating cycles Have stamped contacts Tycos Miniature CPC Series limitations: Are complicated construction with several piece parts Are only available with stamped contacts Offer 50 percent less mating cycles Are not heat resistant (non-autoclavable) Are larger, bulky construction, nearly two times bigger 9

10 Interconnect 10 Cooper Interconnects New Thorkom II IP68 rated waterproof connectors are the latest in a long history of high-quality interconnect products. The simple twist-lock and dual O-ring design provide a solid waterproof connection for any environment where uninterrupted reliability and cost are important. Q. What is IP68? A. IP is an industry standard for Ingress Protection. The first number 6 represents protection from dust and particles, 6 being the highest. The second number 8 represents protection against liquid/water, 9 being the highest.

11 Interconnect Product Features – Thorkom II Sealed for IP68 waterproof applications High-temperature stable Twist locking system with positive detent feedback Enhanced safety feature prevents accidental unmating Low cost Easy to assemble UV stable Whether the application is a marine fish finder or electronic equipment on an oil well, Thorkom II connectors and assemblies will keep the connection secure. 11

12 Interconnect Unique Selling Proposition 12 Thorkom II is a low cost, IP68 rated, high performance connector series which cant be surpassed in price for performance IP68 performance tested and passed beyond competitions results Twist lock has an added safety feature to prevent accidental unmating Available with field installable backshells and eliminates the need for potting in the field

13 Interconnect Connector Styles Thorkom II components include many convenient configurations, such as the following options: 7 or 24 position PC board mount receptacles Inline cable plugs and receptacles Field installable and potting backshells Bulkhead and square flange panel mount receptacles. Made from UV stable high temp materials 13

17 Interconnect Thorkom II uses the same screw machine contacts as Thorkom I. All PCB mount connectors come with contacts pre-loaded, so the customer does not have to buy them separately. – Thorkom II The same crimp and insertion tools can use for Thorkom I and II. Thorkom II offers a potting shell and field installable backshells for both sizes, 7 & 24. When ordering a cable mounted part, the backshell / potting shell comes with the connector as a complete item. – Thorkom II Contacts are rated for high power at 5 Amps. Thorkom II connectors are capable of greater than 1000 mating cycles with no loss of performance. Most parts are available with optional Polysulfone, a high temperature material able to withstand the sterilization process in the medical field. Enhanced safety feature prevents accidental unmating.
