Subsea connectors may be a simple deck-mating, spray resistant plug and receptacle or a deep sea exploration mating that has to be done wet, at depth and pressure, multiple times.
SMI has been integrating the world’s leading connectors for the marine environment onto sealed and guaranteed cable harnesses for 25 years, exceeding even the manufacturer’s expectations for design life by optimising performance through advanced sealing and manufacturing using complex chemistry – a truly fit and forget solution.
SMI supply wet mating and dry-mate solutions as well as pressure balanced oil filled (PBOF) wet mating connectors roe ROV, Diver and stab plate mating.
Applications include naval defence, ocean science, towed arrays, exploration, drilling systems, production control systems and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems. SMI’s approach finds favour where reliability is critical and access is difficult. An SMI cable system is designed for long term deployment subsea.
