TE Connectivity (TE)’s HydraElectric Wet-Mate Connector Expands SEACON’s Underwater Portfolio
Following the acquisition of the SEACON group of companies by TE Connectivity (TE) in July 2014, TE has combined its drive and passion for innovation with SEACON’s market leadership position. Through the combination of innovation and leadership positioning, TE, SEACON and DEUTSCH have combined their technical experience and market awareness to round out their underwater connectivity portfolio for subsea distribution systems.
For more than 10 years SEACON has provided the subsea market with optical distribution connectivity solutions, incorporating the highly reliable HydraLight connectors. In a similar timeframe, DEUTSCH has been providing a wide range of optical and electrical Christmas Tree Feedthru systems, together with medium- and high-power distribution connectivity solutions. To complete the portfolio for distribution systems, TE has combined its SEACON and DEUTSCH product experience with TE innovation to develop a 4000-metre capable 1kV AC and 1.5kV DC, 15-40 amp wet-mate electrical connector, called the HydraElectric (HE) wet-mate connector, offering a state-of the- art solution designed for the 21st century, with equal emphases on quality, reliability, deliverability and cost.
