SWIM Series

SWIM Series - Dry Mate Connectors for Shallow Water IMmersion

The SWIM Series answers the most demanding need for marine use down to 300 meters/1,000 feet depth.

  • High reliability, durability and watertightness for shallow water applications such as Unmanned Surface Vehicles or buoys.
  • No corrosion, No cathodic delamination thanks to their high performance yet cost effective thermoplastic construction
  • Their dry mate sealing technology is directly inspired by the JUPITER connectors ( SOURIAU brand ) and has been proven for 50 years.
  • The shell to shell sealing with two O-rings in the coupling interface brings reliable watertightness even at low pressure.
  • These connectors are easy to mate and unmate even with high contact density layouts thanks to a robust coupling ring.
  • Shell polarization keys and scoop proof design make blind mating possible and increase robustness.

Key features and benefits

Description

THE MOST RELIABLE CONNECTOR FOR SHALLOW WATER IMMERSION.

SOURIAU has launched the SWIM Series (Shallow Water IMmersion), to answer the most demanding needs for immersion down to 300 meters/1000 ft. and solve the common issues met in shallow water applications such as poor sealing and corroded contacts due to low pressure cycles.

SWIM connectors have been designed following customer feedback combined with our long term experience in the subsea market.

Technical Data
