Your Professional Marine Electrical Cable Supplier in China

We expertly provide a series of marine electrical cables suitable for particular applications. These cables perform well under high conditions, like:

  • Corrosive materials
  • Saltwater
  • High/low temperature
  • Vibration, etc.

Marine Electrical Cable

The marine electrical or power cables are lines that adhere to the highest maritime standards and qualities. It is produced for various purposes, including power, control systems, and lighting. The lines are typically fix installed on shipboards. Moreover, these cables involve low voltage and medium voltage power cables.

We manufacture a comprehensive range of marine electrical power cables with capabilities including: low smoke, flame retardant, fire resistance, and halogen-free.

Various Types of Marine Electrical Cable

There are numerous types of marine power or electrical cables. Consider the following:

  • SAE Cable Wire: It is generally utilized for marine applications with about  -20ºC -90ºC temperature range.
  • Unarmored Marine Cable: These cables are without armored. They are easy to install and arrange, ideal for lightweight required.
  • Marine Armored Cable: The marine armored cable is produced with tinned copper wire braid or steel wire braid.
  • Fire Resistant Cable: It is produced according to IEC 60331 standard and ideal for shipboard application.
  • LSZH Cable: As its name hints, this cable has low smoke and zero halogens that don’t release toxic fumes even when it burns.

Marine Electrical Cable Structures


The conductors are the cable core, having a single or multi conductors. They are made from bare or tinned copper materials that provide high electric conductivity.


Insulation is essential for preventing conductor shortage. The impregnated paper, PVC cable, polyethylene, or butyl rubber is typically used dielectric power.


The filler makes a circular form in a cable. It comes with various functions and minimizes heat and friction. That helps prevent wiring from degrading over time.


The tape holds the fillers and conductors tightly. It makes the manufacturing process more effortless and designs them to the required shapes. The tape also helps eject air pockets.

Inner Covering

The marine power or electrical cables have inner covering that helps prevent cable insulation moisture. 

We made their inner covering with non-magnetic materials.


Armoring is the technique of applying tinned copper wire or galvanized steel wire braid over the sheath. That protects the cable conductors from mechanical damages. 

Outer Sheath

The outer sheath protects overall cable structures from temperature, oil, dirt, and moisture. It also has excellent mechanical strength.

Is Marine Electrical Cable Functional in Both Wet and Dry Conditions?

Tinned Copper and Bare Copper marine-type wires perform well in both dry and damp environments and at temperatures as high as 105°.

Temperatures as low as 75 degrees Celsius and as high as 105 degrees Celsius can be tolerated by Flat Multi-Conductor Marine Cable.

How is Marine Electrical Cable Used?

Marine Cable is a multi-purpose wire cable for special applications. They can be used for:

  • Power
  • Instrumentation
  • Electronic
  • Communication
  • and other control applications

Allied Wires and Cables meet MIL-spec standards.

How Do Marine Wire and Regular Wire Differ from One Another?

Marine electrical cables contain more copper than regular wires. It has the advantage of carrying better current through the cables.

Marine cable also has a pliable and durable PVC overcoat.

Which Kind of Cable is Utilized in Boats?

Generally, stranded type cables are recommended for boats, not regular household wire conductors. These types of wires withstand vibration and corrosion. That is why marine cables are essential to use on boats.

What Type of Cable is Considered Marine Grade?

A marine-grade cable is defined as when it carries a power cable treated with a coating to prevent oxidation.

A type of wire that not only resist oxidation but also protects against high humidity and salty waters that lead to corrosion.
