  • The sustainable variant with the bio-based outer sheath consists of more than 40% renewable raw materials (according to ASTM D6866). The product properties are the same as for the standard variant made of purely fossil raw materials.
  • The outer sheath made of partially bio-based plastic reduces dependence on fossil fuels and reduces the carbon footprint.
  • Fast information exchange through ETHERNET technology. Cat.5e performance up to 1000 Mbit/s.
  • UL-/CSA-approval according to technical data allows use of the product in the North American area.
  • Halogen-free and flame-retardant materials reduce the possible hazards in the event of a fire.

Application range

  • Also suitable for EtherCAT and EtherNET/IP applications.
  • Especially for environments where electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is required.
  • Cable design allows highly flexible, continuously flexing use in moving machine parts and in the cable chain.
  • Suitable for patch cable assembly up to a cable length of 60 m.
  • The bio-TPU outer sheath is insensitive to mineral-oil-based lubricants and resistant to many chemicals.
