The 2 way expanded beam F-O option for the ‘A’ size connector has been successfully tested to 6000m. First production has now been delivered to the customer as complete cable assemblies.
Through the summer of 2015, amid the normal production of more regular cables and harnesses, the “A” class F-O was developed to save space and complex jumper cable arrangements on a new build project. This robust little example of miniature subsea engineering was designed and prototyped at the new CRE facility in Aberdeen. Each component was subject to numerous compression and decompression cycles, and continued to operate perfectly.
The fully tested connectors are now available in SM & MM with a variety of interfaces in custom materials to suit specific customer requirements.
