An Overview of Hochiki's Marine Approved Ranges

Hochiki Marine Group

Designed for Life at Sea


Hochiki's marine approved Intelligent and Conventional products have been specially designed for the harsh environments found at sea, tested to cope with vibration, sea water exposure and dusty atmospheres.


Both ranges are based around the existing world-proven ESP and CDX ranges and have been approved for marine use by both Germanischer Lloyd and LPCB, to the MED approval scheme.


Ideal for use on ships, oil and gas platforms, wind farms and other similar applications the Hochiki Europe Marine Approved Range incorporates the same world proven reliability and quality as its land-based equivalents.

What is the MED Marine Approval?


The M.E.D. 96/98/EC Directive is an initiative of the European Commission (EC) in the European Union (EU) set up with the intention to reduce costs for the end user by having a simplified classification model for marine approvals.


All approved and authorised products, including Hochiki's, are stored in the MarED database, which to date contains more than 35,000 datasets about products approved under the EU Marine Equipment Directive.


Products are strictly tested by a third party, such as Germanischer Lloyd or LPCB, for use in the marine environment before being granted an approval certificate.


Hochiki’s comprehensive ESP marine-approved Analogue Addressable range is suitable for even the most demanding applications and incorporates high performance sensors, a selection of input and output modules and ancillaries. All products use Hochiki’s high integrity communications link ‘ESP’ (Enhanced Systems Protocol) that’s at the heart of the ESP range.
