CAT5/6/6A/7 Ethernet cable standards supported for energy chains

igus is offering a full range of Ethernet chainflex cables, qualified for CAT 5, 6, 6A and 7 standards. Each cable type has been rigorously tested for more than 40 million strokes at the igus test facility in Cologne, ensuring secure data transmission even under the highest mechanical demands.

Justin Leonard, director, igus, says: "Ethernet cables for energy chains are a fundamental part of the comprehensive 1040 lines in the chainflex range. The chainflex Ethernet CAT 5 cable was introduced in 1999, with CAT 6 cable following 4 years later. To date, the chainflex Ethernet cable programme consists of more than 17 different cables and assemblies. With the world's first CAT 7 cable for continuous moving e-chains, igus continues on this path of innovation and offers customers cable solutions for tomorrow's standards."

With its special construction, the chainflex CAT 7 cable guarantees reliability and integrity in continuous flex applications. The braiding has been increased substantially and overall shielding has 90 per cent optical cover, which ensures high-level functionality, even after millions of bending cycles. In addition, the special conductor and stranding techniques used increase the cable's overall lifetime.

The CAT 7 cable is flame retardant as are all cables with the abrasion resistant TPE outer jacket. In addition, the cable is UL / CSA, EAC and CTP certified and DESINA compliant. The CAT 7 range is also suitable for use in clean room environments and has DNV GL approval for energy chain applications in offshore environments.

Justin adds: "Because of the extensive testing already performed on the new CAT 7 cable, our customers can calculate its expected lifetime, based on parameters such as travel, bending radius and speed, using our chainflex online configurator."
