In environments where connectors and cables are exposed to high pressures and submerged in water for extended periods, secure and waterproof electrical connections are vital for ensuring that installations can be easily assembled, modified and maintained.
As pioneers in environmentally sealed connectors, Bulgin was approached by the largest manufacturer of subsea ROVs to develop a connector which combined quick and convenient connectivity with long-term corrosion-resistance.
Drawing on Bulgin’s extensive expertise in environmental sealing, the ROV Tether Connector is a custom solution that provides
a quick yet secure coupling and locking mechanism.
It can withstand demanding subsea conditions such
as high pressures and extreme temperatures whilst
providing uninterrupted power and data, as well
as fibre optic signal feeds.
Engineered to prevent problems happening in the first instance, the ROV Tether Connector helps reduce cable termination time and potential downtime for subsea projects.
Dynamic pressure balancing via free flow of dielectric oil from the surface to the connector enables ROVs to operate at subsea depths of up to 7000m.
