In the industrial environment, large volumes of data have to be securely transferred from one device to another as quickly as possible. Lapp Group has recently added two high-speed industrial Ethernet cables to its Etherline portfolio, including the world’s first torsion resistant and Profinet compatible Cat7 cable.
Both cables achieve transfer speeds of 10Gbit/s in a frequency range up to 600MHz. This makes them suitable for machinery and robotics applications in which large volumes of data from sensors or high-resolution cameras are common. Both cables have robust and halogen-free PUR sheaths, but differ with respect to their internal structures and other properties.
Etherline Torsion Cat7 is the first ever torsion-resistant and Profinet-compliant Cat7 cable. It can be twisted by 180° in both directions along a length of 1m, at least 5 million times. The easy-to-assemble cable does not have any filler, with the cores only held in place with a polyethylene cross-separator.
Etherline Flex Cat7 is suitable for well-stocked control cabinets where space is tight. Thanks to narrow core cross-sections, the flexible cable has an outer diameter of just 6.4mm and a bending radius of four times the outer diameter. It can be laid next to cables with up to 1000V, or without mechanical protection such as separators.
