ETHERLINE® ROBOT PN FC Cat.5e1 x 4 x 22/19AWG1.556.835.666.4


  • Can be used for Industrial Ethernet in harsh industrial environments
  • EMC-optimised design
  • Screened against interference
  • 2pair: 10/100 Mbit/s for Industrial Ethernet
  • Variant 'FC' with Fast-Connect construction with inner jacket enables effortless stripping and assembly of the cable

Application range

  • Especially for highly flexible, continuously moving use with torsional stress in industrial robots and handling devices in the PROFINET network (Type R)
  • suitable for EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP applications
  • Can be used in dry, humid and oily environments.
  • PUR outer sheath withstands high mechanical loads
  • The PUR outer sheath is insensitive to mineral oil-based lubricants and is chemically resistant in many cases.

Product features

  • Flexibility for use inside power chain/cable carrier
  • TORSION: for torsional stress, e.g. robot application; ± 180° per 1 m
  • PUR outer sheath is resistant to most oils and hydraulic fluids
