Cord Master Engineering manufactures marine power cords. We specialize in low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) power cords which have many shipboard uses.
Low smoke zero halogen power cables are important in a marine environment because, “Low smoke zero halogen cable reduces the amount of toxic and corrosive gas emitted during combustion. This type of material is typically used in poorly ventilated areas such as aircraft, rail cars or ships. It is also used extensively in the railroad industry, wherever high voltage or track signal wires must be run into and through underground tunnel systems. This reduces the chance of toxic gasses accumulating in these areas should the wires be damaged by fire or a short circuit fault.”
