Industrial Ethernet connectivity solutions

July 2011 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Belden offers industrial Ethernet connectivity solutions that are engineered for high performance, reliability and long life in demanding industrial environments.

Building upon its proven Fieldbus cable solutions for industrial environments, Belden has introduced a comprehensive range of copper cabling to support industrial Ethernet and associated communication networks, including EtherNet/IP and Profinet. The addition of this new cable range offers customers a single source for industrial network connectivity needs, a wide choice of products and the option to customise cable designs for reliability, quality and performance in industrial automation and data processing applications.

Ethernet networking expands from the office to the factory

Industrial Ethernet data transmission is able to bridge the gap between the top-level management functions in an organisation and the control devices on the factory floor – a huge advantage in terms of visibility and consistency of communication.

This trend is driving demand for industrial grade Ethernet cabling offering high reliability and seamless performance, particularly in view of the time-critical applications utilised in manufacturing. With the introduction of its portfolio of new cables, Belden now offers an exceptionally broad range of isolutions from a single source well known for reliability, performance and quality. The company’s industrial Ethernet cable complements its extensive selection of Fieldbus cables that support Profibus, DeviceNet, Modbus and other protocols.

Supporting key industrial Ethernet standards

Belden offers a choice of two ranges to support the Ethernet protocol: Profinet cabling, a range of copper cabling conforming to the standard managed by PI International; and standard copper cabling, to support other industrial Ethernet standards.

Profinet cabling features:

* Compliant with Profinet cabling guide.

* Universal conductor AWG 22.

* Cat 5e transmission performance.

* Star quad conductor design.

* Overall braided shield (greater than 85% coverage).

* SF/UTP (overall foil braided shield/unshielded twisted pair).

* Green RAL 6018 cable jacket.

* Three main designation types (A/B/C).

Standard cabling features:

* Conductor sizes AWG 23/24/26.

* Solid and stranded conductors for different application types.

* Cat 5e and Cat 7 transmission performance.

* Four and two-pair conductor design.

* Overall braided shield (greater than 80% coverage for Cat 5e, 65% for Cat 7).

* Three main designation types (Permanent/Flexible/Torsion).

Also available is a choice of robust jacket grades for bulk cabling to meet the different requirements of general, harsh and extreme conditions. Armoured and application-specific cable jackets are available upon request, including weld splatter resistance.
