TE SubCom Upgrades SL17 Submarine Cable
TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has introduced a new version of the company’s SL17 cable, the A1 variant.
This new cable type features a similar structure to the standard SL17 cable product but with a more compact assembly resulting in a design that has been refined for certain applications, the company explained.
In addition, the new cable’s nominal transient tensile strength has been optimized to 50 kN to meet the high-performance cable requirements.
“Our tried and true SL17 cable product has been an industry standard for years, known for its reliability and flexibility,” said Dean Wahlberg, vice president of manufacturing operations at TE SubCom. “Designed in response to customer demands, we’re pleased to bring the new A1 product to market, and are looking forward to adding this cable to our already comprehensive list of available products.”
