Ethernet cable standards supported for energy chains

25 May 2015

igus is now 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.

The special construction of the chainflex CAT 7 cable guarantees reliability and integrity in continuous flex applications. The braiding has been increased substantially and overall shielding has 90 percent 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.
