Cable Splices (SP-Series)

SP-Series cable splices provide the ultimate in reliability and versatility. These splices are used in subsea applications for signal and power requirements where long term reliability is a must. The SP-series is provided in three termination methods.

"Molded" provides the most economical termination method using elastomers to bond the cable to cable.

"FA" provides field assembly using epoxy back potting and custom "Boot Seal". This Boot Seal is designed to provide the hydrostatic seal at the outer cable jacket. A contact insert with gold plated contacts molded in a glass/epoxy thermoset is used as a hydrostatic barrier between each end of the splice.

"FAT" provides the ultimate in reliability and field assembly by the use of multi-level "Boot Seals". The "FAT" termination creates hydrostatic seals at all cable jackets and conductor insulation levels. With multi-level seals, these Splices remain fully functional even when completely flooded with seawater. The "FAT" termination additionally provides an internal pressure chamber allowing for hydrostatic test capability after field termination. Options for the "FAT" termination include full mechanical termination to steel or Kevlar®, and pressure compensation.
