Flexible data cables for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications

05 July 2011

HARTING has developed a new generation of flexible data cables which are said to to guarantee transmission in accordance with the IEEE 802.3an 10 GBase-D Ethernet standard.

The new cables are designed to meet the demand for improved network components, which is rising rapidly with the growing need for higher bandwidths. This trend affects the development of the associated cabling, which traditionally precedes the introduction of the active network components by a significant period.

The new cables satisfy the requirements of Category 6A according to IEC 6156-6 and are enclosed in proven industrial-grade cable sheaths. Both PVC and PUR sheaths are available. There are also two types with UL approval for the US and Canadian markets, plus an outdoor version for use in external environments.

The flexible data cables feature a shielded PiMF (pairs in metal foil) design with optimum EMC characteristics for reliable data transmission. As a result they are suited for use in automation, machinery and control systems applications. They can also be used for higher-level building infrastructures whenever there is a call for special features, such as robustness and chemical resistance.
