We're injection molding the rubber. These connectors are designed for relatively mass manufacturing.
Interesting. Are you planning on offering them as add on end connectors as well?
Tim, yes, absolutely!
Just curious ... what rubber compound are you going to be molding the plugs with? I used to mold subsea rubber connectors at one time.
Rubber is cheaper and REAL quick. Holler if you need to adjust your cook times etc. Got that stuff down pat.
I don't want to go into too much detail here but I'll reach out to you about it.
Any information on the quick connection of the teather? Are you close to release?
I can’t share too much at the moment, unfortunately. We’re still a few months away, I’m afraid, but we’re making progress!
Ok, thanks for the information.
I just ordered a set of these:
Cost isn’t too bad and it should work fine. Less expensive than the “wet connect” which isn’t really required for an ROV like this. I got the 4 wire version since my ROV has a sonar.
