Overview

The WellConnect™ Downhole Cable Mechanical Splice is designed to join two separate cables providing a continuous electrical connection. The Splice is sealed against the environment in an outer Metallic body and is mechanically joined to both ends of the gauge cable providing a metal to metal seal.

The splice is fully insulated against electrical tracking through thermoplastic and elastomeric sleeves.
