Connectors for underwater applications

21 March 2018 Interconnection

Underwater connectors, custom high-pressure cable assemblies and connector terminations are included among Glenair’s range of specialised solutions. Depth rated to 10 000 psi (700 bar) for naval and defence, deep-sea oil and gas industry and oceanographic applications, the products are also applicable to downhole, high-pressure and above-deck shipboard interconnect solutions. Underwater dry-mate fibre-optic and high-speed electric solutions with 10 000 psi pressure ratings are also available.

Backed by an engineering team comprised of industry experts with extensive knowledge and experience in the subsea industry including submarines, ROV/AUV, seafloor operations, geophysical and entertainment projects, Glenair manufactures several complete lines of oil filled (PBOF) and depth-rated cable assemblies for deep-sea applications.

Both the SeaKing and SuperG55 series connectors incorporate numerous design improvements that improve service life, safety, reliability and ease of assembly. Both connector series take advantage of reliability and test standard disciplines developed by Glenair over the past 60 years in the mission-critical aerospace industry. SeaKing connectors, for example, are 100% inspected and tested in a state-of-the-art hyrdrostatic test lab via a formalised qualification test plan model that includes combined testing across pressure, durability, shock, salt spray corrosion as well as other stress factors.
