In response to growing needs in the ROV industry, SubConn has developed and manufactured a new combined power and data cable. ROVs and other underwater equipment can now be powered through the same cable used for data transfer.
Until now, the internal wiring for Ethernet sensors on ROVs required 2 cables - one for powering instruments and one for transferring data.
In response to the need for a combination cable, leading manufacturer, SubConn®, has developed and introduced a combined Power/Ethernet Cable to its Ethernet range.
Both functions are now performed by a specially designed 13 contact connector that is capable of up to 1 Gbit/s data transmission over 100 metres of specialised underwater cable.
New combined cable offers significant savings
Reducing from 2 cables to 1 represents savings both in terms of space, as the connector has the same dimensions as the existing single function version, and in terms of economy. The combined cable is less expensive than purchasing the two single function cables.
