Cat 5e flexible cables

Wednesday, 01 April, 2009 | Supplied by: Belden Australia Pty Ltd



Belden has introduced the category 5e DataTuff SI7938A shielded twisted pair continuous flex cable for use in continuous motion machinery, such as C-Track and festoon systems, as well as robotics frequently used in discrete manufacturing and automated assembly lines. It features a flexible, stranded and shielded construction to resist machine and plant floor vibration, along with high noise immunity.

The ruggedly constructed 4-pair cable was rated by Belden in tests involving over 10 million flex cycles on a C-Track at a radius 10 times the cable diameter. Belden claims that the cable maintained its physical and signal transmission integrity with no damage to the cable, no cable failure and no drop in Cat 5e electrical performance.

The cable features a stranded alloy copper conductor, which is key to its flex capacity. The 24 AWG cable also features polyolefin insulation, and has an overall Beldfoil foil/braid shield and dual TPE jackets to provide high resistance to oil, weld splatter and sunlight.

Belden has also released the 7939A Cat 5e DataTuff shielded twisted pair cable also featuring a flexible stranded and shielded construction that increases the cable’s ability to withstand machine and plant floor vibrations and also more effectively resist the high levels of electrical noise (EMI/RFI) that can occur when cables come in close proximity to power lines, transformers or electrically powered equipment.

Both of the Cat 5e industrial ethernet cables feature Belden’s Bonded-Pair technology, which bonds the individual insulated conductors of each pair along the full length of the cable. The Bonded-Pair cables maintain a consistent distance between conductors, with no twisting or performance-robbing gaps.
