Umbilical Terminations

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

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

"FA" provides field assembly using epoxy back potting and custom "Boot Seal". This Boot Seal is designed to provide the hydrostatic seal between the termination and customer specified cable. A contact insert with gold plated contact molded in a glass/epoxy thermoset is o-ring sealed to the hardware and provides the pressure barrier between the termination and the mating bulkhead or junction box.

"FAT" provides the ultimtate 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 terminations remain fully functional even when completely flooded with sea water. 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.
