Armored Cable Termination

The Armored Cable Termination (ACT) is used to support a subsea electronics package using an armored data cable. The ACT shown below is designed to use a 1 inch diameter armored cable, and has a safe working load (SWL) or 10 kips. The cable's armor wire is trimmed and formed to fit in the lower ACT section. 'Chockfast Grey' is then poured over this armor wire to secure it into place. The upper and lower section are threaded together, and held in place by the Anti-Rotation Lock.

The ACT can be modified for larger armored cable diameters and higher SWL's if needed. Pleade contacts us for more information.



ACT after ELAMS Mission.

The image below shows the original ACT after the completion of a Navy mission.

The original ACT used a 1/4- 20UNC screw to hold the upper and lower sections in place. The modified ACT uses an Anti- Rotation Lock, which will not disengage unless manually depressed with a screw driver.
