HVIRFLA

-

Miniaturized, Rugged and Affordable
Pinless Connector for Harsh Environments

You asked for lower-cost and a smaller package. We listened. WiSub presents the newest entry in its line of advanced pinless connection systems: Hvirfla.

Smaller packaging also translates into lower power, a necessary trade-off that puts WiSub patented award-winning pinless connector technology into the palm of your hand. Literally.

The twist-lock version may replace similar pinned dry-mate connections, however Hvirfla’s wide mating tolerance flexibility allows for several alternative mating configurations, including continuous rotate arrangements.

Comparative Advantages

WiSub pinless connectors transfer data through seawater at much higher data rates than many other existing non-contact subsea communications methods, being based on high-speed, high-frequency microwave electronics vs. low-frequency RF, inductive or acoustic technologies. WiSub pinless connectors are unaffected by acoustic disturbance, or by turbidity and marine growth that might affect optical systems. Electronics and transducers are optimized for through-water transmissions. Low-frequency inductive power transfer and high-frequency data transfer solutions peacefully co-existing without interference.

Flexible Operational Tolerances

WiSub pinless connectors overcome the tight mating tolerances and potential leak paths that lead to pin ground faults on subsea connection applications, enabling solid-state, leak-free connection subsea solutions never before possible with pinned connectors.
