Nikhef develops a super-telescope that detects neutrino particles from distant astrophysical sources such as supernovae, gamma ray bursters or colliding stars. KM3NeT consists of a network of cables and spheres with detectors and has a size of over one cubic kilometre.
For KM3NeT MCAP developed tubes of 40 meters in length with power cables and optical fibers. These tubes are linked together to long cables between glass spheres with sensors, so called Digital Optical Modules. The tubes are filled with oil to withstand high pressure at a depth of 3 to 5 km in the Mediterranean Sea.
MCAP is the specialist for designing and assembling high-grade copper cables, fiber optic cables and modules. They are used in various industries and markets. From milking robot to electronic sphygmomanometer and professional video camera to underwater telescope. Always thought out well and reliable.
These kind of challenges we like to enter, because where others say something is impossible, MCAP continues.
