Connectivity in Tight Spaces

Learn how TE Connectivity (TE)'s power connect solution meets customers challenge of space limitation in offshore environment.

Background

An Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) provider based in Singapore providing explosion-proof solutions, industrial products and engineering services for shipyards, design houses and for Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC). As TE's partner, its product offering also includes cable glands and cable termination kits.

The Challenge

Offshore oil platforms and ships require special electrical solutions such as explosion-proof junction boxes and cable glands. Additionally, there is the constant pressure to save space, an extremely precious and expensive commodity in offshore environments.

The Solution

TE has a holistic offering of both cold and heat shrink terminations. As a result, this Singapore E&I provider identified and proposed cold shrink terminations as the best solution for their needs. In addition, TE provides them with a compact design termination that addressed perfectly the issue of space limitation with increasing power demands.

The Result

TE’s long-standing reputation for excellence and reliability — and the fact that its Raychem terminations are designed to outlast the cables they are installed onto — helps both TE's partner as well as its customers be confident about our solutions. As customers preferred cable solutions partner, TE works closely with the company to ensure ruggedness and reliability in every installation.
