Nexans provide umbilcals designed for oceanographic observations that can be performed remotely from universities and other research centers.
A oceanographic umbilical provide power and signal to sensor systems placed on the sea floor to monitor the environmental conditions in the ocean.
The umbilical is provided with both electrical and optical wet mate connectors and a transformer to convert the voltage down from 3000 V AC to 220 V AC. Furthermore, the umbilical is provided with a cable tail for future extensions to other fields.
Each oceanographic umbilical is project designed, which means number of fibers and voltage is custom made.
