Underwater Switches

Underwater Switches for harsh environments with typical operating depths of 3,600 meters, and options up to 7,000 meters.

Underwater switches are used on submarines, ROV's, AUV's, UUV's, hulls, submersibles of all types, buoys, underwater communication systems, surveillance devices, oceanographic equipment, on deck and wherever equipment is exposed to severe marine and other harsh environments. These switches are also used in oil well logging, well head controls, dredging, fishery gates, and underwater Christmas Trees.

Our switches include limit, positive action and proximity in a range of materials including titanium, plastic and stainless steel. These can be supplied in varying load capacities up to 7 amps and pressure rated to 10,000 psig. To further aid simplicity, our range of modular proximity switches have been integrated with the Micro WET-CON connector making this switch a very modular component that is easily installed and replaced in the field, but without compromizing strength and reliability. 

Underwater Switches

TE's Marine, Oil & Gas (MOG) group offers a variety of versatile and robust underwater switches to suit a number of applications. These include limit, positive action and proximity switches in a range of materials including titanium, plastic and stainless steel. These can be supplied in varying load capacities up to 7 amps and pressure rated to 10,000 psig. To further aid simplicity, our range of modular proximity switches has been integrated with the Micro WET-CON underwater mateable connector making this switch a very modular component that is easily installed and replaced in the field, but without compromising strength and reliability.

TE's switches are qualified for successful deployment on submarines, ROV’s, AUV’s, UUV’s, hulls, submersibles of all types, buoys, underwater communication systems, surveillance devices, oceanographic equipment, on deck and wherever equipment is exposed to severe marine and other hostile environments. These switches are also used in oil well logging, well head controls, dredging, fishery gates and underwater christmas trees.
