Pagination or Media Count:
This manual investigates the factors involved in the theory and design of underwater cable seals or packings of the interference type. It establishes standards for the sizes, proportions and materials for component parts, and for assemblies of seals with both single and multiple packings. It classifies commercially available underwater electrical connector series according to their material composition, and describes them through the use of a standard matrix which lists several critical design features. It supplies manufacturers addresses and a list of significant users of their underwater electrical connectors. Additional organizations with special underwater electrical connector design capabilities are also listed. The manual also identifies and describes practiced methods of preventing failures. Included under a separate binding is a Master Catalogue containing the available catalogues of known connector companies. The Master catalogue is interreferenced with the connector matrices and company listings of the manual.
