Tether Quick Disconnect


(Svein H.) #81

Finished with the QD and used a 4-pin Wet Con. This gives me a extra twisted pair inside the enclosure. I splized a Y-split so i can have the other two spare pairs in another mini connector on the outside of the 4" enclosure if i in the future want to attach a sonar or water linked system. I installed one of the small 7-pin connector that Paul bought and showed us. i think it is a better solution to keep the splice as small as possible and to “hide” it in the sub. to minimize drag in the sea. there is also a bigger chance to get stuck it you have a big splice hanging behind you while flying around

Hi everyone.
I found it at a Japanese dealer.
They seem to be offering waterproof connectors already constructed.
It seems expensive but it is very interesting.

I bought a bunch of the season 2 pin connectors to use with the fathom x but for some reason cannot get my fathom x’s to talk to each other. any ideas?

Hi John,

Which wires in the tether did you connect the SeaCon connectors to? Are you sure the two wires aren’t being flipped somewhere in the connections?

Hi Rusty
I am away from my work base and cant recall exactly but I think I connected the brown wire to the black and white to white on an openrov tether.

just remembered that I had tried it also with just the connectors and no tether with same result.

The info on this forum is great - Thanks. I used the SubConn 8 pin splice with the Scotchcast. Then a SubConn bulkhead 8pin on the ROV. Went 1/64" larger than the 7/16 thread and it worked well. No issues using a drill press. In retrospect I am wishing I put a Kellem’s grip on like @SHS.

Hi Bluerobotics team,

Is there any expected release day for the BR quick disconect?

I have also tested this connector a few times now and they will do the job. I use this connector on my sonar and i had a dive to 100m for a few hours and i had no issues. It is important to mention that i overfill it with cilicone just to be sure that there will be no water in it.

Hi Mark, did you find a solution? Bulgin have circular connectors that are rated IP69k which is more than enough for your application, their standard series is actually tested to 100m for 12h:


(Mark Langille) #91

Yes we used the SEA CON 8 pin connector.

Hey are you able to give us more information on that stainless piece your tether secures to? (what it is, and how it fastens).
It looks really clean.
