The role of connectors in water technology
In recent years, a rising population and high agricultural usage has led to water becoming an increasingly precious commodity, which in turn has seen a shift to innovative technology to increase efficiency and reduce wastage.
Increased investment in the water industry has led to the development of intelligent monitoring equipment, allowing authorities to better highlight where improvements can be made, minimising losses and regulating usage in particular areas. However, to be effective, these systems need to be robustly waterproofed and secured against even the harshest environmental conditions.
Even more challengingly, specialist electronic equipment is often required for underwater and pipeline exploration, which rely on robust robotic technology to provide analysis and aid the exploration of underwater locations. In these circumstances, the risk of ingress is extremely high, as well as the damage that can be done by extreme pressure - all of which can lead to major disruption.
This is why it is incredibly important that suitable connector systems are incorporated into the design of these technologies. Connectors that are suitable for water technology usage need to be rugged and waterproof, offering IP67, IP68 and IP69k ingress protection in both mated and unmated state. Only by doing so can they offer the level of performance that the industry requires.
Northern Connectors recommends a number of connectors for the exacting demands of the water industry, including:

One of our clients, Dynamic Flow Technologies Ltd, was responsible for designing and developing an innovative wastewater meter, based on microwave technology and featuring no moving parts. The design was a finalist at the Water Industry Awards, and is capable of quantitative and qualitative measurement, with a non-intrusive design that incorporates the latest remote reading technologies.
Northern Connectors was introduced to this project in the early stages of its design, which enabled us to build a close working relationship with the customer and use our expertise to offer guidance on product selection.
Due to the demanding location in which the product sits, the connector had to be one that could withstand the harshness of the environment, while offering a positive and secure connection with total peace of mind.
