Ship engines come in all shapes and sizes and are powered by various different fuels. Heavy oil-fuelled engines generate significantly higher temperatures than diesel engines, which in turn places higher demands on the databus and signal cables.
HUBER+SUHNER has developed a special range of cables for engines. These cables have been standardised by renowned manufacturers to meet the high demands placed on and inside the engine. Temperatures in excess of 100°C combined with high vibrations are no problem; the cables are also resistant to oil and have marine approvals such as DNV, ABS and BV.
Since the engines are the most expensive factor in a ship and also generate high costs because of the fuel, the transmission of data to higher-level energy efficiency systems is becoming increasingly important. HUBER+SUHNER offers complete solutions for this, consisting of databus cables, fiber optic cables or wireless. Various system integration contractors can provide the engineering and installation services.
