Aqua Series Super Marine Grade data multicore Back
Van Damme Super Marine is an extension to the Van Damme SeaCat range. The data cable element is a Category 6 S/FTP type - individually foil screened pairs with an additional overall screen. The individual screening of the pairs gives excellent crosstalk figures and the potential to run mixed digital and analogue signals in the same cable. Category 6 rating also gives better headroom and therefore gigabit Ethernet signals will run over longer distances than with the Cat 5E SeaCat range. As with the SeaCat range 4 x OM3 multimode fibres are included in the multicore cables for 10G Ethernet use.

  • Installed distribution of 100Mbs and Gigabit Ethernet
  • Integral 4 way OM3 fibre for 10G Ethernet fibre based networking
  • Installation in marine vessels, schools and colleges, government
  • Installation in public buildings, schools and colleges, government premises and marine vessels
Application notes
  • Cat 6 cables are solid conductor individually and overall screened type
  • Fibre is OM3 50/125µm multimode type
  • For patch panel to facility panel use due to the large overall diameter of the Cat 6 S/FTP element
  • Jacket material specified as the thermoplastic polymer SHF-1; compliant with IEC 60092 Electrical Installations in ships pt. 359 - Sheathing materials for shipboard power and communication cables
  • Fully tested and compliant with the following IEC standards
  • IEC 60332.1 Fire retardancy of a single cable
  • IEC 60332.3C Fire retardancy of bunched cables
  • IEC 60754.1 Amount of Halogen Gas Emissions
  • IEC 60754.2 Degree of acidity of released gases
  • IEC 61034.2 Measurement of smoke density
