Junction boxes, underwater usage
Cabling on the suction tube is made up of limited-length cables (approx. 10 m) with a plug at each end interconnected at junction boxes. This is done to minimize the number of cables on the suction tube and to avoid having to replace the whole cable running from the instrument on the suction tube to on board the ship (in the event of a cable break). Besides some different standard versions MSA-Service also designs and fabricates junction boxes according to customer specifications, for example, with intelligence, plc and fibreglass to copper.
