Common Types of Marine Cable
ZTT manufactures all types of marine cables or marine-grade wire. These cables are used in shipbuildinig and marine offshore applications. They are extremely resistant to UV, corrosion-resistant, fire resistant, etc. Most marine copper cables use tinned copper conductors to provide this level of protection. All of ZTT marine cable types are marine type approved by ABS, BV, LR, DNV-GL, RINA, RMRS, NK, KR, and etc.
GPTM tinned or bare copper cable can be used in 105ºC marine applications. It is installed for general circuit wiring and the internal wiring of equipments.
SAE cable wire has a -20ºC to 105ºC temperature range. Used for general purpose onboards. A GPT insulated primary wire meets SAE standards.
Marine battery cable has a -20ºC to 105ºC temperature range. Provide oil, fuel, and acid resistance. Designed to withstand tough marine conditions.
Flat or round marine cable is simple to install in confined or irregular spaces. Simpler to arrange, thus preferred by many marine cable installers.
JIS shipboard cable is designed with additional safety precautions, excellent insulation, a good inner conductor, etc. Used on electric and control circuits.
Safer than conventional marine cable. It lessens the drag of extra weight on ships. Marine cable is used for power, control, electronics, and instrumentation.
Marine Cable By Applications
Power cable has a 90° maximum operation temperature, and maintains high performance in harsh situations such as humidity, oil, vibration, etc.
Control cable for marine applications is manufactured according to IEC 60092-376 standard. It has a rating voltage up to 250V and 90℃ temperature.
Ethernet cable is designed strong to achieve and maintain high performance even exposed to heat, cold, vibration and salt corrosion, etc.
Instrumentation cable is produced to carry the signal. It is either a single or multi-pair element used for connecting instruments.
Ship Telephone Cable
Ship telephone cable is manufactured with features such as fire-resistant, low smoke, flame retardant, and halogen-free. Has 150/250V rating voltage.
Lighting System Cable
The lighting system cable is used for lighting, power, and general control onboards. Helps for the fast transmission and distribution of electrical energy.
Electronic Marine Cable
Electronic marine cable is made from marine-grade materials. Its implementation standards are IEC60092-353, IEC60092-350.
Marine Cable By Features
Flame Retardant Cable
Flame retardant cable can maintain circuit integrity and continue to work even in fire situations. Passed flame propagation testing IEC 60332-3-22.
ZTT supplies non-armored cables for your application. It can be customized according to your specifications and requirements.
Armored Cable is created by combining insulating materials, metal sleeves, and conductors of various materials to create a sturdy, flexible product.
Mud resistant cable provides easy installation and environmental protection. It can operate at oil & gas rigs in mud conditions.
Cable with zero halogen design that does not release toxic fumes when in contact with fire. It is intended for control, power, telephone, and more.
Fire Resistant Cable
Fire resistant cable can resist fire for a long period of time. It has a high overload capacity, moisture-proof, anti-radiation, and flexible.
Corrosion-resistant cable is designed with superior chemical resistance from sulfuric acid, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, etc.
Oil Resistant Cable
Oil resistant cable is made from no-wick reinforced fillers and live-flex insulation guarantee to withstand oils and harsh chemicals.
Marine cable is available in a variety of types for use in various circumstances. There are also many uses for marine cable in the aquatic environment. It is used or installed on:
- Bulk carriers
- Ships, Vessels
- Navy ships
- Gas tankers,
- Reefers, etc.
Considerations When Buying Marine Cable
Take into account each of the following considerations when choosing a marine cable for a particular application:
- Cross-Sectional Area
- Voltage rating
- Temperature rating
- Regulation and standards
All our marine cable is manufactured according to various standards including:
- IEC 60092-3
- JIS C 3410:2018
- NEK TS 606:2016
- IEC 60331
- IEC 60754-1/2
- IEC 60332-3-22
- IEC 61034-1/2
ZTT Marine Cable Structure
Conductor – Due to their high electrical conductivity, bare copper or tinned copper are used for conductors, which are also referred to as the cable’s core. Copper conductors can be class 2 or class 5.
Insulation – Commonly used dielectrics in power cables for insulation purposes include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), EPR and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE).
Filler – The cable’s circular shape is provided by filler. It also serves other purposes, such as lowering heat and friction, which can eventually deteriorate your wiring.
Tape – Conductors and filler are held firmly together with tape to make manufacturing simpler and conform to desired shapes. Air bubbles are also expelled.
Inner Sheath – Cable insulation is offered with sheathing, also known as beading, to keep moisture out. Nonmagnetic material is used for the inner sheath.
Armour – this method covers a sheath with layers of tinned copper wire braid or galvanized steel wire braid to protect it from mechanical harm. Due to the possibility of induction EMF generation in armor, it must be earthed.
Outer Sheath – An outer sheath is offered for greater mechanical strength as well as general protection against temperature, dust, oil, and other elements. Usually use PVC, SHF1 or SHF2 materials.
