Pressure Balanced Oil-Filled (PBOF) Splice-Less Optical Jumpers With Fiber Management

24/9/15

Subsea jumper assemblies and distribution harnesses are provided by SEACON for use with SEACON subsea connectors. Many subsea optical cable and connection systems utilize Pressure Balanced Oil Filled (PBOF) cabling solutions. These cables utilize an elastomeric tube as a conduit for fiber optic lines. The elastomeric conduit is filled with a compensating fluid, allowing the sea pressure to freely communicate with the interior oil volume, equalizing the pressure in the assembly. This option for cabling provides for a reliable and configurable cable system suitable for many subsea applications. This technology has been widely utilized in ocean science observatories, towed arrays, drilling systems, production control systems and Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) systems to name a few. They have become a critical component in many subsea systems today and SEACON is pleased to offer this solution with its Subsea fiber optic connectors. Splice-less Optical Jumpers offer the advantage of eliminating the need to have an optical fusion splice in the length of jumper hose.
