Trident cable can be disassembled and replaced? How about charging


#21

The trident of the cable can also be removed to charge it? How is its reliability?

I am also very interested in the tether connector, powering Trident, charging batteries and sharing power between Trident and external payloads.

I don’t yet know the full technical specifications however I did see one of the tether connectors from an earlier prototype when I visited the openROV lab last year. From what I recall, it appeared to be of very good quality and was a much better design than generic connectors that tend to fail after a couple dozen or so matings. Based on what I saw, the connector will last many many matings with just a little care.
