Treotham introduces a new range of PROFINET cables designed for fast and
secure data transmission in demanding environments.
The new Lapp ETHERLINE PN Cat.7 cables from Treotham are primarily
intended for use in machines, systems and network infrastructure, especially in
applications where large amounts of data are transferred at high speed. Typical
instances include systems with numerous sensors or high-resolution cameras for
Lapp has expanded its PROFINET range with the new cables covering a
large proportion of potential applications. The new PROFINET cables achieve the
highest data rates, delivering 10 gigabits per second according to the Cat.7
standard. Although Cat.6A cables achieve comparable speeds, Cat.7 cables
feature larger reserves in terms of performance and transmission security as
they operate at a much higher transmission frequency of 600 MHz. As a result,
the cables still achieve maximum performance even if they age or are damaged
over the course of time.
Key features of the Lapp ETHERLINE PN Cat.7 cables include remarkably
thin form with outer diameters ranging from 8.1mm for fixed cables to 8.7mm for
flexible cables; thin design helping save space in cramped conditions in
machines or control cabinets; compliance with the PROFINET standard; and choice
of five variants.
The five variants of the ETHERLINE PN Cat.7 cables include three cables for
fixed installation and two for flexible installation. Fixed installation
variants include a flame-retardant cable with a PVC sheath, a halogen-free and
flame-retardant cable with an FRNC sheath, and a cable with a PUR sheath
meaning it is halogen-free, flame-retardant and more mechanically robust. The two
cables for flexible installation (FLEX) feature a flame-retardant PVC sheath or
a halogen-free and flame-retardant FRNC sheath.
