Trident inside are solid?


#1

The final shape of the trident inside will not water, right? Or that when the use of seawater or will have a part into the trident inside to go?


#2

The housings should be water tight and the inside should be dry.


#3

Trident has a pressure-proof o-ring seal. Electronics inside remain dry.


#4

Thank you, that trident is a whole sealed design, but so a large overall structure of the seal, do not know 100 meters under the pressure is reliable?

The point you are bringing up is in part why we have had to announce a couple of shipping delays. Our prototype shells have been made of Urethane resin casts, and CNC milled plastic which allow for very high precision and tight tolerances. With injection molding, this same precision is possible, but it is more difficult to achieve that precision due to the thermal profile of the process.
How the thermal profile affects the expansion and contraction of the plastic, and thus the resulting tolerances on the finished shells is something that requires extremely high attention to detail, and it has to be repeatable for thousands, if not tens of thousands of shells.

To answer your question, it is reliable. The quality and tolerances of the injection molded shells is something that we are spending a lot of time refining to make sure the many thousands of Trident ROV’s we build have the same quality as the high-precision prototypes we had made.

It sounds very good, very much looking forward to as soon as possible to experience your excellent products.
