This cable penetrator is a simple solution to waterproofing your robot. It’s basically a bolt with a hole that the thruster cable can be glued (potted) into to provide a waterproof connection through watertight enclosures, boxes, panels, etc. This penetrator was designed for an M6 threaded hole and the device side of the Lumen Light
, Newton Subsea Gripper
and Ping Echosounder
. There is no corresponding nut available.
We primarily recommend the WetLink Thixotropic Potting Compound
, which can be applied in one step and provides a depth rating up to 300 meters. Alternatively, we recommend Loctite Marine Epoxy
and the Potting Kit
to complete assembly.
- Anodized aluminum construction for corrosion resistance and high strength.
- Captive O-ring face seal that works on any smooth surface.
- Wrench flats for easy tightening.
- Works for cables smaller than 4mm as well.
