Cables & Installation Material for Boats

In order to keep voltage drop in the cable as low as possible and to avoid impermissible heating of the cables, it is necessary to carefully determine the required cable cross-sections. The voltage drop (loss) between power sources and consumers must not exceed certain values. Learn more about Cables & Installation Material...

- The correct cable cross section is essential - 

The maximum permissible voltage loss of navigation lights is 5%, which is 0.60 V for a 12 V vehicle electrical system. For other consumers, the voltage loss is 7%, which corresponds to 0.84 V for a 12 V vehicle electrical system.
The required conductor cross-section, wherein the permissible voltage drop (V) is not exceeded, is calculated as follows:
Since the current is multi-directional and it has 2 cores, the conductor length is twice as large as the cable length (the distance between the consumer and battery). The constant 56 = conductivity of copper.
