NMEA 2000
NMEA 2000 is a protocol used to create a network of electronic devices – mainly marine instruments – on a boat. Various instruments that meet the NMEA 2000 standard are connected to one central cable, known as a backbone. The backbone powers each instrument and relays data among all the instruments on the network. This allows one display unit to show many different types of information and allows the instruments to work together. NMEA 2000 is meant to be “plug and play” to allow devices made by different manufacturers to talk and listen to each other.
ODVA is a global association whose members comprise of world’s leading automation companies. ODVA’s mission is to advance open, interoperable information and communication technologies in industrial automation. The association recognizes its media independent network protocol, the Common Industrial Protocol or “CIP” – and the network adaptations of CIP – EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, CompoNet and ControlNet – as its core technology and the primary common interest of its membership. ODVA’s vision is to contribute to the sustainability and prosperity of the global community by transforming the model for information and communication technology in the industrial ecosystem.
LV 214
This automotive standard was developed by German car manufacturers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen. It addresses the ability of terminals to be effectively evaluated by crimp force monitors. The terminals must exhibit certain crimp force to be used in an automotive wire harness.
UL 2238
These requirements cover devices intended for inter-connection of equipment, sensors, and actuators in remote-control, signaling, and power-limited circuits. Included are cable assemblies and fittings, feeder-tap cable systems, feed-through connectors, multi-outlet fittings, panel-mount fittings, and splitters. These devices are rated at no more than 60 A and no more than 600 V. These devices are not intended for disconnect means.
UL 2237
This standard covers multi-point interconnection power cable assemblies. They may consist of power cable assemblies, male or female power cable fittings, panel-mounted power cable/conductor fittings and feeder-tap power cable fittings, referred to as the device in this standard, used with industrial machinery in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery, NFPA 79 that have system voltages up to and including 1,000 V.
UL 1977
These requirements cover single and multipole connectors intended for factory assembly to copper or copper alloy conductors or printed wiring boards for use in data, signal, control and power applications within and between electrical equipment.
UL 1863
This standard applies to Safety Communication - circuit Accessories. It covers telecommunications-circuit accessories, such as jack and plug assemblies, quick-connect terminal assemblies, telephone wall plates, telephone extension cords, cross-connect terminal-block assemblies, maintenance terminal modules, terminal enclosures, cable-splice enclosures, network-interface devices, wire-guide assemblies, and connector boxes.
UL 50e
This standard applies to enclosures for eletrical equipment intended to be installed and used in non-hazardous locations. It covers additional environmental construction and performance requirements for enclosures.
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is the world's leading organization for the preparation and publication of international standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. These are known collectively as "electrotechnology".

The IEC provides a platform for companies, industries and governments to meet, discuss and develop the international standards they require. All IEC standards are consensus-based and represent the needs of the key stakeholders of every nation participating. Every member country has a vote on what is included into an IEC international standard.
The ability of a chemical to burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion. The degree of difficulty required to cause the combustion of a chemical is quantified through fire testing. Flammability can be classified as low (least flame-retarded) to high (most flame-retarded). From lowest to highest it is classified as follows:

• HB - horizontal slow burning: Burning rate under 76mm/min for a thickness below 3mm or the burning stops before 100mm
• V-2: Burning stops within 30 seconds on a vertical specimen and drips of flaming particles are allowed
• V-1: Burning stops within 30 seconds on a vertical specimen and drips of particles are allowed as long as they are not inflamed
• V-0: Burning stops within 10 seconds on a vertical specimen and drips of particles are allowed as long as they are not inflamed
UV Resistant
Being resistant to ultraviolet light (UV), or sunlight, means being able to withstand or resist the degradation caused by ultraviolet light. UV light causes non-resistant materials and surfaces to fade or discolor.
