Ship Electronics

Due to the existence of severe navigational environment, the quality requirement of all electrical equipment on board the ship is generally higher than that on land - it is required that these equipment can withstand the humid environment, high temperature, salt water vapor and corrosive atmosphere, shaking vibration and so on. So what electric equipment does the general ship have? What are the functions of these electrical devices?

1. Alternator – This is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and is used to charge the ship’s batteries.

2. Batteries – These are used to store the electrical energy produced by the alternator and provide power for the ship’s electrical systems.

3. Circuit breakers – These are used to protect the ship’s electrical system from overloads and short circuits.

4. Main Switchboard – This is the center of the ship’s electrical system and is where all the electrical power is distributed.

5. Electric Motors – These are used to drive pumps, compressors, and other equipment that require electric motors to operate.

6. Generators – These are used to produce electric power for the ship’s electrical system.

7. Transformers – These are used to convert the voltage of electric power from one level to another.

8. Inverters – These are used to convert the direct current (DC) power from the batteries into alternating current (AC) power for use aboard the ship. 

9. Starters – These are used to start the ship’s engines and other equipment.

Whether it is for lamps or other electrical equipment, the use of these equipment has a wiring demand. Some equipment wiring is integrated into the product, such as the plug of our common electrical equipment. Some devices are reserved interfaces, which are connected only when they need to run. most of these interfaces are plug and play. There are also devices that require separate waterproof connectors for connection.

Especially in a humid environment at sea,the speed of rust and corrosion is generally much faster than on land. The ship connector, which acts as the line connecting of the equipment on the ship, naturally must have the same requirements as the power devices. What characteristics should ship connectors have? How they are applied? Let us explore in more details.


Shipboard connectors need to be well waterproofed to protect it from the effects of sea water and humid air to help reduce the risk of electrical shocks from water damage. Additionally, water-resistant connectors is much more durable and reliable, ensuring that it can withstand the rough and unpredictable conditions of the sea.


The connectors on ship needs to be corrosion resistant because it is exposed to a range of environmental conditions, including saltwater, sunlight, and moisture. Corrosion can lead to damage and malfunction of the equipment, making it unsafe. Corrosion resistant material connector can help to greatly decrease the corrosion rate of connectors and interfaces, ensuring its safety and reliability.


The connectors on shipboard needs to be shockproof because of the vibrations, shocks and other impacts caused by the ship‘s engines, waves, and other environmental factors. Shockproof connector is designed to protect the equipment from these impacts and keep the whole circuit line functioning properly.

UV Resistance

The connectors on shipboard need to be UV resistance to prevent damage from ultraviolet radiation. UV radiation can cause fading, cracking, and discoloration of materials, as well as damage to electronic components. UV protection also helps to reduce the risk of premature deterioration of the equipment, which is essential for vessels on extended voyages.

When choosing ship electronic connectors, you need to pay special attention to the durability,UV resistance,corrosion resistance,shake-resistance and other correlation properties of cable connectors.
