Marine Cable Structure

Below are the different structures of a marine cable:

  • Conductor: Stranded Tinned copper or Bare copper
  • Fire-proof Layer: Mica Tape ( for fire-resistant type only)
  • Insulation: XLPE or EPR, which is used for preventing conductor shorting and is commonly used for dielectric.
  • Inner Covering: Polyester Tape or LSZH compound
  • Armoring: It is an earthed layer of metal wire braiding to protect the cable from damage.
  • Outer Sheath: LSZH compound, which protects the cable from moisture, temperature, oil, and dirt.

Considerations When Purchasing Marine Cables from China for Your Project

Conductor

There are different types of conductors including bare or tinned copper wire, class 2 or class 5, usually for conductor size above 16sqmm, we recommend class 5 for flexibility purpose.

Insulation

The electrical and mechanical properties should be determined to choose the right insulation of your cables, usually we use Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation for its excellent performance.

Cross-Sectional Area

A cross-sectional area identifies how much current the cable can carry. You must remember that huge cross-section areas have lower resistance.

Voltage Rating

A voltage rating of LV power cable is 0.6/1 kV while control cable is 150/250V. Medium voltage cable rating is from 3.6/6kV up to 18/30kV.

Temperature Rating

It is the maximum working temperature of the cable without damaging the insulation. Usually it is 90℃.

Standards

All the marine shipboard cables should be subjected and qualified to standards including JIS C 3410, IEC 60092, NEK TS 606, and etc.

Approval Certificates

Marine cables also should be type approved by classification society including ABS, BV, CCS, LR, DNV-GL, RINA, RS, NK, KR, BKI, CRS, and etc.
