Key Features of Ship Electrical Cable

Our ship electrical cable provides several benefits, including:

  • Halogen-Free. These cables don’t include any halogen group substance, such as chlorine.
  • Low Smoke Emission. It emits little smoke which aids in putting it out when a fire occurs.
  • High Electrical Conductivity. Effectively conduct electricity which allows them to function.
  • Fire Retardant. Minimized cables’ exposure to fire.
  • Abrasion-Resistant. Helps them be more durable against wear and tear.

Structure of Marine Electrical Cable

  1. Conductor – Core of the cable, consists single or stranded conductor, made of tinned or bard copper.
  2. Insulation – prevent conductor shortening. Common types of power cable dielectric include XLPE or EPR
  3. Filler – provide a round form of the cable. Also serves other purposes, such as lowering heat and friction.
  4. Tape – Hold conductors and fillers firmly. Make manufacturing simpler and conform to the desired shape.
  5. Inner Bedding – Defend the cable insulation against moisture. The inner bedding should be made of a nonmagnetic substance.
  6. Armour – Protect from mechanical harm.
  7. Outer Sheath – Provide general protection against temperature, dust, grease, moisture, and other elements.

Considerations for Choosing Ship Electrical Cable
Considerations for Choosing Ship Electrical Cable

When choosing a ship’s electrical cable, you should take the following into account:

  • Type of insulation material: XLPE or EPR
  • Selecting the right conductor: Bare or tined copper wire, class 2 or class 5
  • Cross Section Area: Specifies the cable’s maximum current carrying capacity.
  • Voltage Requirements: Refers to the highest voltage to which it can be attached.
  • Certification and Standards

What Advantages Come With Marine-Grade Electrical Cable?

Because of this characteristic, they will last longer and you won’t need to replace them very soon. Other advantages include:

It can carry more current.

It has a higher current carrying capacity.

Included with special polyvinyl chloride, or PVC

Can be used on boats.

How Should Ship Electrical Cable Be Specified?

Ship electrical cables are built to withstand harsh climatic conditions as listed below:

Ø Oxidation and Corrosion

Ø Cold Environment

Ø Chemical Contaminants and Oil

Ø Extreme Hot Surroundings

Ø Humidity

Ø Salinity

Ø Fire, and more.

Are Ship Electrical Cables Have a Particular Color Code?

Yes, the electrical cable for ships is coded according to specified colors.

This involves:

Color Code
Red positive mains
Purple connects electrical devices to the ignition switch
Pink ties a gauge to a fuel gauge sender
Gray links fuses and switches to the lightning system
Brown generator armature to the regulator
Tan attach gauge to the water temperature sender
Blue Stripe ties tilt and trim circuits together
Green or Green with Yellow Strips fir bonding wires
Brown with Yellow Strips links the positive mains that are not fused
How Long Do Ship Electrical Cables Last?

These cables have an expected lifespan of 24 years on average.

However, it must be updated every 8 years, and visual examinations must be conducted often.

A thorough evaluation of their condition is required.

Ship Electrical Cable and Instrument Cable: How Do They Differ?

The fundamental distinction between instrumentation cable and ship electrical cable is how they are used.

The electrical equipment for the ship is powered via ship electrical cables.

While electrical equipment on a ship is controlled by instrumentation cables.

Do Ship Electrical Cables Operate the Same in Dry and Wet Conditions?

In both dry and wet environments, ship electrical cables can withstand temperatures of up to 105 °C.

More particular, these cables and wires’ conductors can function at 105 °C in dry settings and at 75 °C in wet situations.

What are the Standard Specifications for Burying Ship Electrical Cables?

Here are the top seven requirements for ship electrical cables:

1. Temperature of the Cables’ environment

2. Grave depth

3. Cable protection requirements

4. Cables’ axial spacing

5. Thermal resistance of the ocean floor and land

6. Submarine cable length

7. Water level
