Cables, Mounts, and Spares

Cables, mounts, and spares specific to an instrument can be found on the Configure tab and/or Accessories tab on the instrument page.

This page includes generic information on cables (pigtail cables, data I/O cables, and load-bearing underwater cables, as well as cable adapters for connecting a cable to a computer), connectors, and dummy plugs. For cables, the Sea-Bird part number and drawing number is listed; the drawing number is linked to the cable drawing. Check the drawing if the cable length listed on this page does not meet your needs; cable drawings often list part numbers for the same cable in other lengths.

Notes:

  • Click the applicable 'Buy Now' link to purchase the item on-line (not all items currently available on-line).
  • Try our Cable Search page to search a database for cables, including Y-cables for multiple auxiliary sensors connecting to a single end cap connector.
  • The actual cable, connector, or dummy plug required is dependent on the instrument (comparison of XSG/RMG connectors to wet-pluggable MCBH connectors). To ensure that you are purchasing the correct part, consult Sea-Bird with your instrument's serial number and information about your instrument configuration / features before placing an order.
