LAN cables irrigate the vessel to deliver, via RJ45 connectivity, a secure and high-speed data transmission. According to the level of performance required, LAN cables exist in several categories (Cat 6, Cat.6A and even Cat 7). As mechanical and EMC (Electro-Magnetic Compatibility) requirements are challenging, LAN cables are designed with a tinned copper braid (SF/UTP or S/FTP designs) for demanding marine environment. Designed in 4 pairs or 2x4pairs, LAN cables are dedicated for high frequency and operate in temperature ranging from -20°C up to +70°C.
Fieldbus, coaxial or Optical fiber cables
Can Bus or Profibus cables have fixed impedance and transmit an extremely precise digital signal to control all essential shipboard functions, like motors, rudder and hydraulic systems.
Coaxial cables are usually used for onboard high frequency data transmission (communication equipment, radar, and instrumentation) and also carry video signals for surveillance cameras.
Optical fibers are mainly used to transmit information over long distances and with high bit rates. Among other key features the signal transmitted on the fiber is not disturbed by any electromagnetic wave created by power cables or electric machines.
