Underwater Optical & Electrical Penetrators from SEACON…


Penetrators are used in applications in which a waterproof seal needs to be made between a cable and a pressure vessel. This is often accomplished using a connector set, but if there is no requirement to separate the cable from the equipment, a penetrator may be used. A penetrator generally has fewer seals and may be physically smaller than a connector pair but hard wiring the cable to the equipment may make it less flexible in use than a connector.
