Sealed solutions for reliability and performance

MARINE & UNDERWATER connectors and cable assemblies

Marine and underwater applications, in which data and lives depend on reliability and performance, require sealed and corrosion-resistant products. Fischer Connectors offers you a broad choice of connectors and cable assemblies, tested against the strictest international standards and proven to perform consistently in the harshest environments.

When designing your equipment, choosing the right connectivity solutions with the right type of sealing early in the process is crucial to ensuring that your project is durable and a commercial success. In addition to the connector, cable quality and performance are critical in guaranteeing ultra-sealed connectivity for your devices.

IP68 SEALED & WATERTIGHT SOLUTIONS

Our standard IP68 sealed solutions have all been tested at a depth of 2 meters for 24 hours, but specific product lines have been tested even deeper, as indicated in the table below. We can develop sealed connectivity solutions tailor-made to fit your application’s requirements (depth, pressure, etc.).

SALT & MARINE ENVIRONMENTS

Salt strongly increases water’s conductivity, so seawater and salt mist can act as an electrolyte, causing galvanic corrosion. Choosing the right materials and coatings is therefore vital. In the following table you can find the specific coatings for some of our product lines; if you need additional information, please contact us.
