The German connectivity specialist ESCHA is well-known for a fast and flexible implementation of current customer requirements to its standard portfolio. For example with two new cable qualities which were launched within a very short time due to increasing customer demand and are now available.
A new PVC-cable is aligned to Industrial Ethernet applications which have minimum demands towards drag-chain- and torsion capabilities. A new EtherCAT-cable with yellow outer jacket is particularly predestined for application areas in automotive assembly where this jacket color is mandatory. At the market launch, ESCHA has prepared a broad range of products for both cable qualities, each consisting of M8-, M12-, and RJ45-connectors in different variants.
PVC-cable for Industrial Ethernet
For many years, ESCHA has been offering a wide choice of connectors and cable qualities for Industrial Ethernet applications. These cable qualities are suitable for medium and high mechanical stresses as well as robotic applications with high demands towards flexibility. Due to rising customer demands for a cost-effective solution for applications with low mechanical stresses, the connectivity specialist is now rounding off its portfolio and offering a corresponding PC-cable called S5200.
This new cable is PNO-compliant and perfectly suitable for applications in which drag-chain- and torsion properties are not important. ESCHA is already presenting a comprehensive product portfolio with M8-, M12-, and RJ45 connectors at the market launch. All components with the new cable quality guarantee a reliable data transmission according to Cat5e and meet the tightness requirements of protection classes IP67 and IP68.
EtherCAT with yellow cable quality
In the meantime, a cable quality with yellow outer jacket has become mandatory in many EtherCAT-applications – the demand is especially rising in the area of automotive assembly. The connectivity specialist ESCHA extends its EtherCAT-program with a corresponding cable called S1329. This cable guarantees an industry suitable data transmission according to Cat5e which meets the real-time requirements according to IEC 61158.
Due to its flexible structure, it is drag-chain suitable and can withstand more than 5 million bending cycles. Different versions with M8- (four-pole), M12- (four-pole, D-coded), and RJ45 connectors are now available. Thanks to their UL-certification the products can also be used on the North American market.
