OPTI-CON Dry-Mate, Fiber-Optic Hybrid Subsea Connector Range Provides Cross-Market Technology Opportunities


TE Connectivity to Showcase Optical Connectivity Solutionsat Subsea Valley Conference 2016

Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, at booth A37 at Subsea Valley Conference 2016, to see TE’s latest subsea optical connectivity solutions for many applications within the oil and gas market.

As offshore oil and gas activity continues to migrate into deeper waters, equipment like cameras, monitoring systems, sonar and ROVs require connectivity solutions that can withstand greater pressures while still maintaining electrical performance and high data transfer rates. As the use of fiber optics in subsea applications continues to grow, the need for a standard high-quality electro-optic connector is emerging.

Among the cutting-edge connectivity solutions on display at the Subsea Valley Conference on energy and technology, TE is pleased to introduce its OPTI-CON series standard, dry-mate, fiber optic hybrid connector range as part of its SEACON product line.

The OPTI-CON standard, dry-mate, fiber optic hybrid connector series is a distinctive design that allows the customer to choose any combination of optical and electrical configurations to meet specific needs across a wide spectrum of applications.

The connector series is available in five shell sizes from one to twenty contact configurations, oil filled or overmolded to any type of cable. This series is pressure rated to 7,500 psi (5,200m  water depth) and is offered in a variety of fiber types from single-mode to multi-mode with optical insertion loses of less than 0.5dB typically less than 0.3dB.

SEACON is part of TE’s growing portfolio of brands within the marine oil and gas market, which also includes brands such as DEUTSCH Offshore, Rochester Wire & Cable, and Raychem. These brands will also be featured at the booth. TE will also showcase its SEACON MSS (Metal Shell Series) and MINI-CON connector ranges at the show.

TE engineers will be available at the booth throughout the show to discuss connectivity solutions for specific customer applications.
