Founded in 1957, South Bay Cable Corp is a leading designer and producer of special purpose cable for use in demanding and harsh undersea environments. Cable constructions incorporate electrical components for signal and power, fiber optics and a variety of synthetic and metallic strength members. Each cable is designed specifically for its intended use. Cable uses include; ROV Tether and Umbilical, Side Scan Sonar, Tow Cable, Vertical Riser, Video Inspection, and a multitude of other unique applications. To date, more than 60,000 different constructions have been designed and manufactured by South Bay Cable Corp.
From the stranding of the individual conductors to the completion of the finished product, all stages of production are done in house. This flexibility allows the Engineer’s endless design possibilities to provide the best possible cable construction. Electrical conductors can be engineered from signal voltage up to 5000 volts continuous operating. Single mode and multi-mode fiber optics, with proof testing to 200kpsi, are employed in both stainless steel tube and tight buffer configurations.
