ETHERNET CABLES ARE READY FOR INDUSTRY 4.0

Etherline Torsion Cat7

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.
