Wire & Cable
Pacer Group manufactures and stocks a large inventory of primary UL marine wire and UL boat cable products.
Is it Wire or is it Cable?
Although many people consider them the same, wire and cable are quite different. For starters, a wire is a single conductor whereas a cable is a group of two or more conductors. The wire itself can be either stranded or solid depending on it's intended purpose. Pacer Group wire ranges from 18 gauge to 8 gauge while our cable goes from 6 gauge to 4/0 AWG. All Pacer Group wire and cable products are made with marine environments in mind. This ensures that the wire and cable we offer is resistant to acid, alkali, oil, flame, gasoline, abrasion, and moisture.
What kind of conductor and insulation do we use?
Each style of marine wire, battery cable, or boat cable we sell is made from annealed, fine stranded tinned copper wire. Tinned copper wire is used to create electrical connections that can handle the harshest marine conditions. By using bare copper, you leave your electrical system vulnerable to corrosion and failure. Pacer Group's manufacturing process also extrudes a flexible yet tough PVC jacket. The extrusion process serves to fill the voids between conductors. Doing so leaves no airspace for condensation to accumulate. The final product is primary UL marine wire, battery cable, and boat cable that is flexible, durable, and easy to install.
