DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cables and connectivity

Belden Inc. is announcing its broadest line of industrial-grade cable and cord sets available in the EMEA market today. Designed and manufactured for use in harsh and/or extreme environments, the exceptionally robust Belden DataTuff Industrial Ethernet cable and connectivity range has high levels of reliability, quality and performance.

The Belden DataTuff product portfolio covers all areas of the industrial environment, from the cabinet through the telecommunications room to the factory floor, ending on the actual machine. Specifiers can choose from products suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, for use underground, and for other harsh conditions. Options include Cat 7 and Cat 5e, with PVC, FRNC, TPE and PUR jackets, shielded or unshielded, twisted pair and bonded pair. Cordsets are available with RJ45 and M12 connectors, and IP20, IP67 and IP68 protection. The cabling meets all data rate requirements, ranging from 100Mb/s, through 1Gb/s, to 10Gb/s. Other choices include solid conductor, cabinet style cabling, and highly flexible trailing cables with resistance for more than 2 million cycles, or torsion cables which withstand up to 10 million cycles.

To help IE network designers and specifiers navigate through the DataTuff portfolio's range of options, Belden has introduced a Cable Selector Guide. At the end of five key decision points, the customer reaches a part number that answer the particular needs of the specific application.

A key feature of the DataTuff range is the Belden patented Bonded-Pair technology, for specific applications where the cable is pulled, twisted and stepped on during and after installation. Thanks to its construction, the Bonded Pair technology keeps a continuously uniform centricity, i.e. conductor-to-conductor spacing, offering excellent and consistently reliable electrical performance.

Loredana Coscotin, product marketing manager for Industrial Cable at Belden EMEA says: "Rugged conditions call for ruggedised cables. There is a significant difference between standard Ethernet cables and cables designed for industrial use. They are tough enough to withstand the hazards and risks they are exposed to day after day. Only Industrial Ethernet cable and connectivity solutions can really ensure the highest level of reliability, quality and performance at all times. It is for this reason that Belden offers a range of DataTuff cables, specifically created for manufacturing environments, with in-design, tested performance."

Ms. Coscotin adds: "Although our DataTuff range was designed for harsh environments, these products are suitable for all industrial applications. Investing in a high-quality, rugged Ethernet infrastructure is always a wise business decision "" one that can provide tremendous peace of mind for network engineers, administrators and the organisations they serve."
