Industries We Serve
Marine environments present one of the biggest challenges for electrical components and electronic systems, yet IEWC has the wire, cable and wire management products that can withstand such harsh conditions. With local expertise and a global network of distribution centers, IEWC provides the quality and the service you need to get the job done right.
The recreational marine market includes OEMs that build boats intended primarily for consumers' personal use, including inboard and outboard motor boats, yachts, sailboats, and rowboats. This market was especially hard hit during the recession, but continued improvement in economic conditions is fueling expected growth over the next several years. Europe and the US continue to be the leaders in boat and engine manufacturing, though Asia is becoming a larger player in this industry. Growth in the market is primarily due to increased consumer interest in both smaller boats, including pontoons and ski boats, as well as powerboats. Continued innovation around propulsion systems and controls to simplify handling has contributed to this trend.
Recreational marine environments present some of the biggest challenges for electrical components and electronic systems, including the harnesses used in sensors and controls, display interfaces, battery connections, and grounding systems. High performance for critical on-board applications is required, yet extreme temperatures coupled with the combined corrosional effects of moisture, salt and oil can quickly lead to degradation of wire and cable vital to your system. Wire, cable and wire management products must meet these performance requirements and withstand such conditions.
IEWC carries various constructions of primary wire, battery cable and other products that stand up under harsh conditions and meet applicable UL, SAE and ABYC specifications. A broad offering of wire management products, including cable ties, heat shrink, terminals, and labels, is also available. Local expertise, a global network of distribution centers and extensive inventory of such products ensure you can get the right products for your application.
