CRE design and stock an extensive range of specialised Power, Signal, Coax, Fibre Optic and composite cables suitable for use underwater and in harsh environments.
The marine industry faces fresh challenges as operating water depths increase and bandwidth and improved signal performance becomes even more critical. CRE designs, qualifies and stocks an extensive range of specialised cables.
We consistently maintain high inventory levels in order to provide a fast track delivery service for our customers; typically we stock over 60,000m of cable covering a diverse range of cable types for different applications. If your project requires specific functionality, we have the capability to satisfy your needs with a custom cable design.
We are experienced in the manufacture & testing of cable assemblies using CRE’s design of metal shell connectors or standard connectors from a wide range of suppliers.
Our extensive knowledge of materials and application engineering enable us to manufacture high quality and reliable products, ideally suited for specific project requirements.
We design composite cables containing a wide variety of cable elements delivering tested signal performance at depths up to 6,000m. Projects requiring one-off bespoke cables can be designed and delivered to meet your critical requirements.
CRE stock cables offering the following functionality:
— Fibre optic cables – SM & MM
— High voltage
— High current
— Ethernet, 1 Gigabyte rated to 6,000m WD
— Coax cables, rated to 1080p/60Hz to 6,000m WD
— RS232 cables, rated to 115 kbps to 6,000m WD
— Armoured cable
— Armarid/Kevlar fibre strain cables
— Halogen free custom cables
— Buoyant cables
— Diver communication cables
— Composite/Hybrid cables
Verification testing of the finished cable design can be undertaken to confirm performance meets customer expectations. We can offer hyperbaric, hyperbaric/signal performance with coax, Ethernet, RS 232 testing along with standard continuity, HV AC/DC insulation testing and load testing of designs with a strain element.

Manned Submersible Quick Release
CRE supply several customers that specialise in the manufacture of one atmosphere manned vehicles for the private, commercial and military markets.
During a dive there could be certain scenarios where the release, from the vehicle, of items such as batteries or manipulators are considered necessary. Historically, this has been achieved using pyrotechnic fasteners and a guillotine that is qualified to cut the cable attached to the assemblies.
6,000m Underwater Research AUV
One of our European customers had a development program to design and build a 6,000m rated AUV to complement and support their existing fleet of underwater vehicles.
An AUV is an autonomous drone designed to accomplish intelligent missions without assistance from an operator. It was envisaged that the new vehicle would be able to undertake a high frequency of extended dives, whilst scanning the sea and visually inspecting localised areas near the sea floor.
"We have received the shipment, thank you and all the team for turning the cable around so quickly. Very professional, great service."
"Thanks for getting back to me so quickly today with all the quotations I sent through, great response and greatly appreciated!"
"Your NCR close out was very professional with all the actions completed in a timely manner, our drawing has now been updated to reflect the latest build standard."
