Bespoke cabling solution simplifies complex operations

Louise Smyth

Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR) has designed and manufactured a bespoke cabling solution for the UK's Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS).

STR were approached by CEFAS to produce a cable design to simplify their more complex operations and expand the capabilities of their recently purchased STR SeaSpyder Telemetry Camera System.

The cabling solution was designed in-house at STR to enable the SeaSpyder Telemetry System & fibreoptic mux to directly interface with 6 off STR underwater LEDs, an array of laser pointers and line generators, altimeter and depth compass. Together with the cables for Aris sonar, and the STR SeaSpectrumIP camera, this provided CEFAS with a fully mountable video inspection system for their sled.
