E Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, announces its C-Lite cable family of lightweight marine cables has received classification certification from the China Classification Society (CCS), making the C-Lite family certified by eight of the top marine classification agencies in the world.

"The C-Lite family of cables are vastly small and light, letting customers do more with less," said Mark Casselton, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE. "And with TE's new manufacturing facility in Kunshan, China, we are now able to better serve our customers in Asia with shorter lead times, helping them get to market faster."

C-Lite cables use TE's advanced materials technology to deliver a thin-wall insulation that dramatically reduces the size and weight of cables - without reducing the electrical or mechanical properties. From general power and lighting to communication, control and instrumentation applications, the C-Lite cable family is designed for use in a variety of commercial marine, offshore and military marine applications.

The C-Lite cables install up to 30 percent faster into a vessel or module compared to traditional cables, permit tighter bend radii and enable smaller cable trays and ancillaries, allowing more equipment to be connected within the same space. The thin-wall technology uses low-smoke and zero halogen wire and cable - which emits lower levels of toxic gases and generates considerably lower levels of smoke so that visibility is preserved in an emergency. The highly flame retardant cables are resistant to oils, solvents, fuels and petroleum mud.

In addition to the recent classification certification from CCS, TE's C-Lite family of high-performance lightweight marine cables are certified by seven other leading marine classification approvals, including: ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), BV (Bureau Veritas), DNV (Det Norske Veritas),GL (Germanischer Lloyd), KR (Korean Register of Shipping), NK (Nippon Kaiji Kyokai) and RMRS (Russian Maritime Register of Shipping).
