April 27, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Apr. 27, 2018 – Helukabel now supplies pre-assembled data cables for industrial Ethernet systems. With molded M12 and RJ45 industrial connectors, the company says customers can modularly assemble any possible combination of cables and connectors to design a product for their exact needs.
In combination with high speed data cables with transmission rates of up to 10 GBit/s, the molded M12 and RJ45 connectors are described as delivering a “faster and more reliable” connection within control cabinets, machinery and in-the-field operations. The cable/connector combinations are directly related to the customer’s intended application use – static, occasional movement, or continuous-flex, the company says. Helukabel’s molded M12 connectors come in D- and X-coded versions, both male and female, for use with Category 5 and 6A cables, which cover data transmission rates of up to 10 GBit/s. Both the molded RJ45 and M12 plug-and-play solutions are UL/CSA approved.
