  • 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.

Application range

  • 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.
