This cable penetrator is a simple solution to waterproofing your robot. It’s basically a bolt with a hole that the a cable can be glued into to provide a waterproof connection through water-tight enclosures, boxes, panels, etc. This 3mm size is intended for smaller cables like the Fathom Slim ROV Tether.
We primarily recommend the WetLink Thixotropic Potting Compound
, which can be applied in one step and provides a depth rating up to 1000 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
- Multiple inner diameters to secure the cable jacket but leave room for potting compound
