unassailable ‘fit & forget’ pressure moulded cable systems for hostile environments

Penetrators

Penetrators are used to take cable through a form of bulkhead as simple as a partition or as challenging as a critical barrier such as a fuel tank or the pressure hull of a submarine. Often with liquid on one side or both, the penetrator must transition the cable whilst preventing a leak from one side to the other.

A penetrator can be a gland which achieves this with the cables permanently installed as part of the penetrator or may be a connectorised version where receptacles on both sides of the bulkhead can be mated or de-mated. SMI has been producing world leading penetrator designs for more than 25 years and has developed systems to deliver advanced future capability with their notorious legacy of reliability.
