The Ancor 1 – 0 AWG Tinned Copper Wire Battery Cable is a high-quality power solution that ensures reliable electrical connectivity in marine environments. This robust battery cable, manufactured by renowned industry leader ANCOR, is specifically engineered for demanding marine applications, where durability and corrosion resistance are essential.
With a substantial 1/0 AWG size, this cable is capable of handling high current loads, making it ideal for large boats, yachts, and other sea vessels. The generous 100-foot length of the cable offers ample coverage for most marine installations, allowing for flexible routing and connection over sizable distances.
Constructed from high-quality tinned copper with Type 3 stranding, the wire boasts superior corrosion resistance – a critical attribute for marine wires. This construction not only fights off the corrosive effects of saltwater and electrolysis but also delivers enhanced conductivity compared to non-tinned variants. The ultra-flexibility feature of the cable is credited to its Type 3 stranding, which efficiently combats fatigue from constant vibration and movement that are natural in any marine setting.
The standout feature of this battery cable is its insulation, made with ANCOR's proprietary premium vinyl. Unlike standard insulations that can become rigid and crack in low temperatures, this premium vinyl preserves its flexibility in extreme cold, ensuring consistent performance and easy handling throughout the year. It also provides exceptional resistance to environmental hazards encountered in marine settings such as saltwater, battery acid, oil, gasoline, and ultra-violet radiation. The robust insulation is not only capable of withstanding a wide temperature range—105°C when dry and 75°C when wet—but also protects against heat and abrasion for comprehensive durability.
Compliance with industry standards such as UL 1426, CFR Title 46 of the US Coast Guard Charter boat, and the standards set by the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), is a testament to this battery cable's exceptional quality. End-users can be confident in the cable's safety and reliability because it not only meets but exceeds the necessary criteria for marine electrical components.
