Leviton Announces Type Approval for Shipboard and Marine Environments

New approval includes Leviton's Cat 6, Cat 6A and Cat 7 MarineSafe copper cables

Glenrothes, UK, April 24, 2023 – Today Leviton announced the enhancement of its MarineSafe Cat 6, Cat 6A and Cat 7 copper cable portfolio with the addition of Lloyd's Register Type Approval certification for use in Ships and Offshore Installations. The third-party approval process certifies that cables have been tested to a wide-ranging set of criteria. Lloyd’s Register had its beginnings more than 260 years ago to improve the safety of ships. Lloyd’s Register Type Approval (TA) certification process is both extremely rigorous and comprehensive to ensure the products tested will perform in harsh maritime environments. The approval verifies that Leviton’s cables meet the demanding requirements of shipboard and offshore installations.

"We are delighted to have worked with Leviton to enable them to achieve Type Approval and look forward to ongoing cooperation," said Lindsay Butler, UK and Ireland Principal Electrotechnical specialist for Lloyd's Register.

Leviton's MarineSafe cables have an enhanced Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) sheath ensuring excellent fire and operating temperature characteristics, as well as being designed to ensure electrical performance well beyond ISO/IEC and ANSI/TIA category standards. When used in conjunction with Leviton connectivity, these cables give shipbuilders, and those designing structured cabling networks for marine environments, the portfolio of solutions they need to deploy mission critical data applications at up to 10 Gb/s, while enabling Power over Ethernet (PoE) to up to 100 watts.

"With full Type Approval Certification for our family of MarineSafe cables, we are elevating the performance of our products and enabling our customers to get the high-quality solutions they need for the demanding environments in which they work," said Jonathan Dunbar, senior product manager, Network Solutions Europe.

The new enhanced portfolio of MarineSafe cables includes:

  • MarineSafe Cat 6 S/FTP
  • MarineSafe Cat 6A S/FTP
  • MarineSafe Cat 7 S/FTP
  • MarineSafe Cat 6 U/FTP
  • MarineSafe Cat 6A U/FTP

MarineSafe cable is made using 100% renewable energy in Leviton’s PAS2060 carbon neutral manufacturing facility in the UK and provided in 100% recyclable packaging. To learn more, visit: LevitonEMEA.com
