The Pressure Activated Switch triggers at a depth of 2-3 atm yet can survive over-pressure to 1,100-atm. The super-strong Ti-6-4 switch body is also corrosion proof. It comes in several versions: for glass spheres (G-120), end caps (G-121), or in-line (G-117).All switches have the initial option of “OFF” at surface, “ON” at depth; or “ON” at surface, “OFF” at depth.

The G-120 comes with a standard Titanium Grade 5 (Ti 6-4) body for use in glass spheres or the in-line version, but the G-121 can be made of other materials to match a specific endcap material to avoid galvanic corrosion. Each switch is individually serialized and tested to their design limit. The G-120 and G-121 are rated to 18,000psi.

Watch the Nanolander Deploy an Entrained Anchor

The video, shot from below the Nanolander with a GoPro camera, shows the anchor deploying to its proper position below the unmanned vehicle. The optional Anchor Entrainment Pod is designed to hold the weight secure within the Nanolander frame until the vehicle is launched and on its way to the seafloor. This is helpful when the slide ramp can’t be used, and the deployment is easier without the anchor swinging around. See the action here!
