Water Resistant Cables

Our water-resistant cables are designed to withstand a variety of moisture and water exposure conditions, from fully submersible through to moist and wet indoor environments. Examples of environments include: Outdoor installations, marine environments, industrial settings, and more. The level of water resistance depends on the specific design and standards compliance of the cable.

The key feature of a water resistant cable is its outer sheath which is made from a range of water repelling materials. Common materials include polyethylene, polyurethane, or special PVC formulations such as cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) or ethylene propylene rubber (EPR). Shielding layers are employed to protect the cable from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radiofrequency interference (RFI). This shielding may also contribute to the overall water resistance of the cable.

IP Ratings are used to classify the degree of protection provided by the enclosure of electrical equipment against the intrusion of foreign bodies and moisture. For example, an IP67 rating means the cable is dust-tight and can withstand immersion in up to 1 meter of water for a limited time.

Water-resistant cables find applications in various industries such as telecommunications, outdoor lighting, marine installations, irrigation systems, and industrial automation where exposure to water, moisture, or harsh weather conditions is common.

It's important to note that the term "water-resistant" does not imply complete waterproofing, and the level of protection can vary. The specific requirements for water resistance will depend on the intended use and the environmental conditions the cables will face. Please check the cable specifications, IP ratings, and compliance with industry standards to ensure that the cables will meet their specific needs.
