HIGH POWER PINLESS SUBSEA CONNECTOR

WiSub’s disruptive pinless connector solutions are creating new possibilities for the safe and reliable transfer of power and data underwater. Patented high-speed data transfer capabilities have been combined with high power in Torden™ which transfers 1000 Watts of power across a gap.

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 WiSub-patented high-speed, high-frequency microwave electronics vs. low-frequency RF, inductive or acoustic technologies.
Advantages over legacy “plug-in” wet-mate connectors include galvanic separation, alignment freedom, immunity against seal contamination and unlimited mating cycles.

WiSub pinless connectors are unaffected by acoustic disturbance and turbidity, or by marine growth that might affect optical systems. Driving 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 sub-millimeter tolerances to offer centimeter tolerances on your subsea connection applications, enabling subsea solutions never before possible with pinned connectors.
