Data Cables for industry
Many different data cables are available on the market. In many applications standard data cable does not lead to the desired result or a machine uses Industrial Ethernet or a fieldbus. The Industrial Ethernet cables from ESCHA are available in 4-pole or 8-pole M12x1 connections.
ESCHA has different cables for different applications in the range. ESCHA has cables for the following fieldbuses: Profibus, ModBus, CANopen and DeviceNet. Ethernet / IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP, POWERLINK are Industrial Ethernet cables.
Industrial Ethernet Cables - RJ45 - M8 - M12 - Data Cables
Industrial Ethernet cables can be found in every appliance or workplace. ESCHA ethernet cables are available in 4-pole (D-coded) or 8-pole (X-coded) M12x1 connections. Just as chassis connections, interface components and circuit board components. RJ45 patch cords ensure the high quality of data transfer. Ethernet cables are available in the following categories: patch cables Cat5e, patch cables Cat6A, and patch cables Cat7.
RJ45, M8 & M12
Ethernet cables support the following protocols: PROFINET, Ethernet Powerlink, Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT Sercos. The cables are available in M12, M8, RJ45 and as connectors, chassis parts or receptacles with sealing up to and including IP68.
Profibus Connectors - Data Cables
Profibus cables must comply with the Bus-specific requirements of the Profibus/profinet organisation (PNO). ESCHA cables are in compliance with these requirements and available in 5-pole (B-coded), M12, T-splitters and Y-splitters, connectors, chassis parts or receptacles with sealing up to and including IP68.
CANopen cables & DeviceNet cables
User organisation ODVA requires CANopen and DeviceNet cables to have:
- 5-pole M12 connections
- a PUR cable
- halogen-free cables, chassis parts or receptacles
- shielded cables
- twisted cables for warning signals and power supplies with stripped cable ends
CANopen cables and DeviceNet cables are equipped with UL-certification and can handle a resistance of up to and including 120 minutes. The cables are available in 5-pole (B-coded), M12, T-splitters and connectors, chassis parts or receptacles with sealing up to and including IP68.
M8x1 Connector for PROFINET and EtherCat
The M8x1 connectors are equipped with a D-coding for PROFINET applications and a P-coding for EtherCAT-P applications. Both D-coding and P-coding are available with a straight and angled version.
Simply superior data transfer thanks to 'shielded' concept
ESCHA patch cables carry data from Point A to Point B with less data loss. Why do they lose less data? ESCHA cables are 360 degrees shielded: they are equipped with an extra casing according to the patented two-shell shielding concept.
In the connector, the patch cable loses the most data. Despite the fact that most patch cables these days contain a casing that protects them from data loss, these casings only run through the cable. ESCHA patch cables are shielded a long way into the connector, whereby the patch cables sustain less data loss.
