Metal Shell Series (MSS) Offers Technical Advances for Subsea Operating Systems
As subsea systems operate in increasingly challenging environments, TE Connectivity (TE)’s SEACON group has improved its connectors to help meet the demands. TE’s commitment to technological advancements across its SEACON product lines has led to improvements across its 25 product ranges, 30,000 connector types and configurations, and thousands of customized connectors for electrical, electrical-optical hybrid, wet-mate and dry-mate connectors.
One of the many products TE has continued to evolve is its SEACON MSS line. Used in high-power motors, submersible pumps, subsea electronic module (SEM) control units, drilling systems and umbilical links for remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs), the MSS connector is highly versatile to adapt to systems that require multiple applications through a single interface. MSS connectors can withstand full ocean depth pressure and are fully ruggedized to ease handling and deployment. Manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel as standard with Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) inserts, these connectors are adaptable to custom strength terminations and have a wide range of customizable configurations.
