Ship Cabling

Structured cabling on board ships is exposed to harsh chemical and mechanical stress (i.e. vibrations). Solutions must be simple, space-saving and robust.

Special onboard requirements

R&M ship cabling is characterized by easy, compact and stable installation. The product characteristics of the R&Mfreenet system fulfill specific requirements in shipbuilding and in ship operation, such as Power over Ethernet (PoE) or resistance to high levels of outside stress. The operating environment on board requires outstanding product qualities in terms of vibration resistance, resistance to high levels of humidity, resistance to salt water/salt spray and good Electro-Magnetic Compliance properties (EMC).

Certification included

The use onboard ship constitutes a demanding environment. To make sure products are fit for this application, 3rd party test houses have specialized to assess products for their suitability for use on sea. A selection of the R&Mfreenet portfolio has been tested and type approved by the Danish test house DNV-GL. These products are certified to be suitable for use in maritime applications.

Reliable termination for maritime environments

R&M’s position as a technology leader in the field of Insulation Displacement Contacts (IDC) allowed the implementation of IDC termination in the plugs for RJ45 based patch cords.
IDC-terminated connections are characterized by:

  • Gas tight wire contact
  • High vibration resistance
  • Simple installation → simple maintenance
  • Optimal suitability for PoE up to 90 W

R&M’s RJ45 based components are a perfect fit for use on high seas.

Vibration proof products

R&M’s IDC contacts on the connection modules and patch cords are suitable for both solid wires and stranded cables. Therefore, much better vibration resistant stranded wire installation cables can be used in the permanent link.
Suitability of the optical connection components for use on board is ensured thanks to the narrow dimensional tolerances and the high levels of dimensional stability when exposed to moisture and weathering.
