Belden Announces Availability of MarineTuff Instrumentation, Control and VFD Cables

Marine-certified cables provide reliable, safe, and cost-effective solutions for harsh offshore environments

St. Louis, Missouri – Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission critical applications, announces the availability of its new MarineTuff line of HaloarrestXLink LSZH-Jacketed 600V instrumentation, control and VFD cables. These cables offer reliable, safety-conscious cabling solutions for offshore platforms, equipment suppliers and commercial shipbuilders. These marine-certified cables offer the safety benefits of low smoke and zero halogen (LSZH) jackets while maintaining the physical toughness to withstand the harshest offshore environments.

Belden’s MarineTuff cables are the ideal solution for the most challenging offshore activities such as mobile drilling, fixed platform, floating production, storage and offloading or marine vessels.

Specifying and using Belden’s MarineTuff cables for marine and offshore oil and gas applications can reduce costs because the costly wiring certification process is not necessary during each procurement cycle.

The MarineTuff cables are designed for use in both interior and exterior environments. This makes purchasing easier by eliminating the need to specify multiple cable types. It also leads to earlier production and deployment by accelerating the design, fabrication and installation process.
