Ethernet cables are the backbone of the smart factory. Here’s what you should look for when selecting cables that can handle harsh environments and support high data rates.
Automation is continuing to increase on the factory floor and the need for more data is placing new demands on Ethernet cables. These system specific cables must be able to hold their own in harsh factory environments while still supporting high data rates. Because it can be a challenge to combine the design requirements of robustness, flexibility and high data rates all in one cable, it’s important to know what your options are when selecting data cables for your factory.
