Description of Marine Approved LAN Cable

Marine-approved LAN cable is built to endure the rigors of the maritime environment while meeting high safety and performance standards. As a result, marine-approved LAN cables must be impenetrable in terms of safety and performance. This indicates that the cable is resistant to fire and does not contribute to its spread.

Guangming’s marine-approved LAN cable outperforms standard cable wires owing to increased characteristics such as flame-retardant qualities, lightweight construction, fire-resistant properties, smoke-retardant properties, halogen-free properties, and more. The following are the essential qualities that separate marine cable from other cable lines.

Fire Resistant

Marine approved LAN cables are fire-resistant and highly resistant to combustion, and they also slow the spread of fire.

Flame Retardant

All marine-grade cables must meet the prescribed standard or pass the relevant test. This is because maritime cables must be flame retardant to safeguard boats and offshore installations from fire damage.

Low Smoke

Low smoke emissions are one of the essential properties of high-quality marine-approved LAN cables, which is critical for protecting life on board vessels.

Cable Features

Marine approved LAN cables are designed to withstand harsh circumstances, such as being on a boat, an offshore platform, or any other maritime environment. The precise specifications of marine approved LAN cables vary according to the company and the application. Still, the most typical factors are conductor size, jacket material, shielding, temperature rating, and voltage rating.

Cable Construction

Several critical cable construction aspects must be considered when selecting or looking for marine approved LAN cable. Lastly, the aim is to guarantee a maritime cable that suits your requirements.

  • Insulation – This wire is insulated with an electric-repellent or non-electrical substance. It is essential for any marine approved LAN cable because it prevents current from contacting other conductors in the environment. Most marine cables are manufactured of thermoplastic material since they are both cost-effective and dependable.
  • Code of Series – This material gives a fundamental grasp of the marine cable coding sequence. This is an important consideration when choosing an offshore cable since it protects against the chance of connectivity loss or damage. As a result, understanding the series code is critical to obtain the necessary efficiency and outcomes.
  • Sheath – A marine cable’s inner and outer sheaths are the most important parts. It is a cable component that protects it from the elements. Some marine approved LAN cables include a smooth aluminum sheath, essential for bending in marine applications.
  • Armor – A marine cable’s inner and outer sheaths are the most important components. It is a cable component that shields it from the outside environment. Some marine approved LAN cables include a smooth aluminum sheath, essential for marine applications requiring bending.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cat 6A Marine is ideal for usage on large vessels such as yachts and cruise ships. It has an IEC-compliant sheath and is flame retardant according to IEC specifications. You may obtain an armored version if you wish to use it in harsh situations or suspect the cable is broken.

Outdoor Marine Grade Ethernet cables (Cat5e, Cat6a) are built to survive harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, and freezing temperatures, making them an excellent alternative for outdoor networks that require a waterproof solution. However, indoor Ethernet wires are generally not watertight.

Although CAT7 provides greater bandwidth, the 10 Gbps bandwidth capacity of CAT6A and the 10 Gbps bandwidth of CAT7 are equivalent. CAT6A cable is also less expensive than CAT7 cable and less bulky, making it easier to terminate.
