Presentation
CLIPPER is a plastic low cost range of
industrial connectors, UL & CSA approved.
Complementing SOURIAU product range
CLIPPER offers :
• a high sealing level :
- IP67 for the sealed plug (with o’ring
and mating seal)
- IP68 for the enhanced sealed plug
(with o’ring and a special mating seal).
This version allows a permanent waterproof
level when immersed at depths down
to 30 meters.
• a retention plate system allowing
insertion/extraction of the contacts without
the need for tooling,
• facilities to use trade backshells with the
electrical thread adaptor (PG).
CLIPPER range
is composed of :
• 4 sizes of shell in molded black
thermoplastic material
(size 1/2/3/4).
• 7 contact layouts
(4/9/14/18/26/31/40 contacts).
• #20, #16 contacts, machined or stamped
and formed, crimp, solder or PC tail
termination.
• An adaptor with electrical PG thread for PG
backshells.
• Backnut with grommet facilities.
Locked, the retention plate holds the contacts firmly in position
Unlocked, the retention plate allows
the insertion/extraction of contacts without tooling

Squeeze the plier handles until a final click sounds, release, the pliers should
open by themselves.
Fully insert the contact into the locator (corresponding gauge), the contact
crimping lugs should be directed upwards, according to the drawing.
Put the stripped wire in the crimping part until it comes in contact with the
stopper plate. Make sure that no strands stick out of the crimping part.
Squeeze the plier handles until a final click sounds, release, the pliers should
open by themselves.
• Check the overall aspect of the crimping.
• Push the cable into the contact barrel and make sure the cable strands stick out
of the inspection hole.
• The pliers must be used on the jaws side.
Squeeze the plier handles until a final click sounds, release, the pliers should
open by themselves.
• Insert both wire and contact (or wire, reducing sleeve and contact) between the
4 jaws until stopped by the locator.
• Fully squeeze until a final click sounds, the pliers should open once the crimping
is performed
Extract the wire and crimped contact, then check the overall aspect of the
crimping.

Panel mounting
There are two types of mounting possible: through the front or through
the back of the panel.
Panel cut-out
• For a sealed mounting, the seal gasket shall be used, making sure the
surface is in good condition.
• Observe the drilling hole diameters indicated below.
• Use the recommended screws :
M3 (all shells)
or # 4.40 (shells 1 and 2)
# 6.32 (shells 3 and 4)
• Respect the coupling torques indicated M3

Jacketed Cable Stripping Length
Make a 90° cut at the cable end.
carefully make an incision in order to remove the cable protection on a
length LD as described.
Caution : This operation should be realized without deterioration
of wires insulation.
Then, follow the normal stripping instructions :
- single wire with machined crimping contacts,
- single wire with stamped and formed crimping contacts
Stripping Instructions
Use the upmost care with stripping operation :
• Use stripping pliers appropriate for the cable gauge and which are in perfect condition.
• In order to obtain a correct crimping and to maintain all of the connector sealing characteristics, the wires must have the dimensions described below.

Instruction For Assembly
Insertion and extraction of contacts
Single wires
Contact insertion and extraction is performed without a tool thanks to te retainer plate system.
Insertion
1) With the thumb and index finger, squeeze the
retainer plate flaps and pull backwards : the plate is
then in
the unlocked position.
2) Fully insert the wired contact in the cavity.
3) Repeat the same procedure for the other contacts.
4) Once again squeeze the retainer plate flaps and
push forwards: the plate is then locked and retains
the contacts (90 N of retention force for contacts of
1.6 mm dia.)
5) The plate can only be pushed backed if the
contacts are correctly engaged (backup security)
Extraction
1) With the thumb and index finger, squeeze the
retainer plate flaps and pull backwards : the plate is
then in
the unlocked position.
2) Pull the contact wire: the the contact comes out of
the cavity.
3) Repeat the same procedure for the other contacts.
Special case of jacketed cables
1) Locate the first contact and the corresponding cavity.
2) The wire should described a buckle as describe below.
3) Unlock the retainer plate as described above.
4) Fully insert the wired contact in the cavity.
5) Respect the same procedure for the other contacts
6) Once again squeeze the retainer plate flaps and push forwards : the
plate is then locked
Special case of jacketed cables
7) Manually fully screw the adaptor and the backshell on the connector.
Caution : In the sealed version don’t forget the O-ring.
8) Push forwards the cable of 10 mm in the backshell.
9) Fully screw on the backshell with a wrench while keeping the adaptor
with another wrench.
Note : The plate can only be pushed back if the contacts are correctly
engaged (backup- security)
Adaptor and PG electrical thread backshells
The CLIPPER connector must be equipped with an adaptor in order
to use a PG electrical thread backshell (e.g.: cable clamp or sealing
gland, or flexible conduits system backshells, etc.)
1) Manually, fully screw the adaptor on the
connector, the hexagonal nut towards the
rear.
2) In the sealed version, cover the
O-ring.
3) Manually, fully screw the PG thread backshell
of your choice.
Note: In the case of an elbow backshell, it is
possible to adjust the position according to the
angle desired.
1) Position the O-ring at the bottom of the backnut.
2) Run the backnut around the cable.
3) Unlock the retainer plate.
4) Position the grommet in the thrust ring, resting against the
retainer plate.
5) Insert the contacts through the grommet and the retainer plate.
6) Lock the retainer plate.
7) Screw the backshell.

When the insert is partially filled with contacts, place polarization
contact into selected hole location in the FEMALE INSERT and
push in until seated.
Polarization contacts are used to provide keying capabilities for
the CLIPPER series.
Polarization contacts are used in the socket-cavities of standard
plugs and reverse receptacles.
In order to lock the couple of chosen connectors, you have to let
free the cavity in front of the polarization contact.
To avoid the connection with other connectors, you have to insert a
contact in the cavity in front of the polarization contact.
Heat shrink boot
Shrink sleeve as follows :
1) Use heat gun with an air deflector nozzle.
2) Adjust air deflector opening to accommodate tubing size. Turn
switch ON. Wait until full heat output is reached.
3) Position the air deflector over section of tubing to be shrunk.
Start at pre-shrunk section and work towards open end.
4) When tubing begins to shrink, move gun so that air is distributed
in a band around the tubing circumference causing it to shrink
evenly around the cable.
5) Move nozzle to adjacent section and shrink in the same manner.
Repeat process on section at a time until entire length is shrunk.
Avoid excessive heat. Direct heat away from connector assembly
to prevent damage.
