  • Thread profiles are available to mate with penetrators from a wide range of manufacturers.
  • Surface connectors are EX certified and available with straight, 45°, 60°, and 90° cable exits.

Packer penetrators and custom solutions include small-diameter configurations to fit through existing tooling. Additional configurations include:

  • Single-piece designs to support 6.6KV applications.
  • Extended mandrel lengths and field detachable down-hole connectors.
  • PT100 penetrators feature integrated temperature sensors.
