  • The Fast Connect construction including inner sheath and separating cross significantly reduces the cable's assembly time, as the time-consuming removal of the pair shielding is no longer necessary. In addition, it offers undiminished shielding of the wire pairs from each other.
  • Additional protection against electromagnetic interference through double overall shielding made of aluminium-laminated foil and copper shielding braid with a high degree of coverage (SF/UTP).
  • UL certification according to technical data enables the use of the product in the North American region.
  • For transmission of analogue and digital signals in the frequency range up to 500 MHz.
  • Available with rugged PVC outer jacket or halogen-free FRNC outer jacket.

Application range

  • Also suitable for EtherCAT and EtherNET/IP applications.
  • Variant FLEX with reduced conductor cross-section is suitable for applications with limited space.
  • For flexible use.
  • Usable in dry, damp and wet environments.
  • Usable in a variety of ways depending on the sheath material.
