ETHERLINE® EC FD Cat.5e M12-M8
Industrial Ethernet Patchcord, M12 D-coded to M8 A-coded, straight or angled, PUR outer sheath, Cat.5 2-pairs
- Suitable for drag chains
Additional variants are available at
or on request.
- Connecting cable assembled on one or on both sides saves installation time and reduces or eliminates the potential for on-site assembly errors.
- High resistance to electromagnetic interference thanks to star quad stranding as well as double shielding made of aluminium-laminated foil and a high degree of coverage (SF/UTP).
- Available with RJ45, M8 or M12D connectors. The slim RJ45 connector enables use in devices with a very high port density, while the integrated vibration protection of the M8/M12D connector is useful for applications with shock and vibrations.
- The angled shape of the connector is suitable for the space-saving cable outlet.
- Halogen-free core insulation and sheath compound to meet special fire protection requirements.
- Cable design enables highly flexible, constantly flexing use in moving machine parts and in the cable chain.
- Also suitable for EtherCAT and EtherNET/IP applications.
- Compliant with standards for use in buses (fire behaviour test according to UNECE-R 118 for vehicles of category M3 (II and III)).
- The PUR outer sheath and connectors withstand high mechanical loads.
- The PUR outer sheath is insensitive to mineral oil-based lubricants and is chemically resistant in many cases.
- Meets the requirements according to Cat. 5e and class D
