Cable requirements for industrial applications can be extremely demanding. They must be able to perform in tough environmental conditions such as higher temperatures, oil and solvents, aggressive chemicals and/or humidity as well as against strong mechanical stress such as flexing in cable chains or twisting in robot applications.
Ethernet cables rated for category 5 and 6 from SAB have proven to have excellent performance in such applications. However, the market continues to work on current and future designs demands, especially in automation processes with a permanently increasing data volume and transmission velocity. After considerable design efforts and intensive testing, SAB offers our newest generation of Industrial Ethernet cables, CAT 7 and CAT 7 A Ethernet cables for industrial applications extending the frequency range to 1000 Mhz.
The application possibilities range from a simple flexible application for use in cable tracks and robot applications. The production possibilities cover standard dimensions as well as hybrid cables integrating CAT 7 with other elements per our customer´s request to create composite designs.
