Ship Electrical Cables
Ship electrical cables meet the demands for the highest cable flexibility. This type of cable offers high efficiency and low weight. Furthermore, ship electrical cables are fire resistant and self-extinguishing. It has the right insulation whether it is exposed to chemicals or oils. There are multiple conductors, and voltage ratings available for ship electrical cables.
We produce a complete range of ship electrical cables for low to high voltage power system. Our cables correspond to different international standards and approval. We can provide standard and customized ship electrical cables and offers our client’s highest utility.
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
- Conductor – Core of the cable, consists single or stranded conductor, made of tinned or bard copper.
- Insulation – prevent conductor shortening. Common types of power cable dielectric include XLPE or EPR
- Filler – provide a round form of the cable. Also serves other purposes, such as lowering heat and friction.
- Tape – Hold conductors and fillers firmly. Make manufacturing simpler and conform to the desired shape.
- Inner Bedding – Defend the cable insulation against moisture. The inner bedding should be made of a nonmagnetic substance.
- Armour – Protect from mechanical harm.
- Outer Sheath – Provide general protection against temperature, dust, grease, moisture, and other elements.
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
Our ship electrial cables are produced according to JIS C 3410 and the following IEC standards:
- IEC 60092-353, 351,
- IEC 60092-360, 350
- IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3-22
- IEC 60754, IEC 61034
- IEC 60331
- JIS C 3410: 2018
- Approval: ABS, DNV-GL, NK
- And more
Why Choose Us
To ensure the high quality of the offshore power cables, our QC team will do the following tests before delivery.
- Mechanical Performance Testing: Aging oven, low temp box, pull machine.
- Electrical Performance Testing: Insulation resistance, dielectric strength, etc.
- Flame Testing: Smoke density, flame retardant, fire resistance, acid gas, oxygen index.
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.
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 Fire, and more.
Yes, the electrical cable for ships is coded according to specified colors.
|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|
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.
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.
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.
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
