Calling All Marine Electronic installers and NMEA2000 product OEMs:

Are you an installer/integrator/designer of Marine electronics? If so, you know the complexities of system design and cost of installations.

Molex will be displaying a full range of harsh duty connectivity products at the upcoming IBEX show with product ranging from certified NMEA2000 networking cabling to sealed quick disconnects and multi-conductor sealed bulkhead connectors. All products are designed specifically to handle the unique conditions and challenges found in marine market.

Almost 70% of network failures occur as a result of a mechanical failure involving the cabling and connectors.  In the harsh, heavy vibration marine market, components are at a higher risk of being jarred loose, or exposed to corrosive salt and other chemicals, which can lead to hours of diagnostic activity chasing network Gremlins.  The application of sealed IP67 connections designed to handle the marine market means that your system will handle the vibration, temperature extremes, liquid and dust exposure and will offer reliable performance for years to come.

There is no question that the biggest market shift in recent years is the shift to networked products.  Use the best products on the market for these applications; they offer the lowest installed costs over time.  For total system design flexibility in NMEA2000 applications, visit the NMEA 2000* Cables and Connectors page on .

Come see us at booth 2454 and discuss your unique application!
