Cables for continuous-flex and torsion applications

Nov. 7, 2013
Etherline CAT.6A cables combine 10 Gbit/sec data-transfer rates with continuous flex and torsion performance. A new shielding system balances EMI protection, flexibility, and mechanical strength to withstand the high strains associated with continuous flex or torsion.
Etherline CAT.6A cables combine 10 Gbit/sec data-transfer rates with continuous flex and torsion performance. A new shielding system balances EMI protection, flexibility, and mechanical strength to withstand the high strains associated with continuous flex or torsion. The shielding employs a proprietary process that wraps aluminum compound foil around individual twisted pairs at an angle optimized for shielding performance.  The cable is copper-braid reinforced with a foil-laminated fleece ensuring reliable data transfer.

Two versions are available — one optimized for continuous flex and the other for torsion ­— with either PVC or PUR jackets. Both versions offer Profinet compliance, UV and flame resistance, and operation in damp or dry operating environments.
