Dec. 12, 2017 – High speeds, secure data transfer and compliance with Profinet are features of the new cables in Lapp’s Etherline series, according to the company.
There are five variants of the Etherline PN Cat.7 (PN stands for Profinet). For fixed installation, it can be flame-retardant with a PVC sheath with the name affix Y, it can be halogen-free and flame-retardant with an FRNC sheath, or it can have a PUR sheath meaning it is halogen-free, flame-retardant and more mechanically robust, explains the company. There are also two variants for flexible installation (Flex) with a flame-retardant PVC sheath or with a halogen-free and flame-retardant FRNC sheath. Lapp says the cables are suitable for use in machines and plants or for the network infrastructure of anything where large amounts of data are transferred.
