1090 Bar pressure (a bit over 16000psi).... at 1bar for each 10m depth.

It's not that difficult to make a box containing static parts such as the electronics stand high external pressure, by filling it with electrical-grade oil or other inert fluid, as I saw on a sea-bed plough exhibited during an open day on a cable-repair ship.

Making moving parts work is the difficult bit!

Thanks for that fascinating link.

Let’s hope it does not meet the same deep sea fate as this machine!
