IE cables to UL 444 CMG Standard
Datwyler expands Industrial Ethernet portfolio
Datwyler’s Industrial Ethernet portfolio, which includes solutions for factory automation, has been expanded by two cable types which meet all the requirements of Standard UL 444 for communication cables. Both can be used as patch cords and connection cables – for flexible wiring in machine control cabinets and for general industrial applications where UL certified products are required.
The new CU 7727 4P is a Cat.7 data cable (AWG 27), suitable for transmission rates up to 10 Gbit/s and hence meeting the real-time requirements of Industry 4.0. Thanks to its compact design it is very flexible and easy to process. For example, it has already been successfully tested on the extrusion coating of industrial connectors. The cable is available from Datwyler with a grey sheath and can be produced in other colours on request.
Datwyler has also requested the same approval for its CU SPE 1P. This flexible Single-Pair Ethernet data cable is equipped with a flame-retardant, non-corrosive and halogen-free external sheath (FRNC).
Both cables meet the high fire behaviour requirements stipulated by FT4 (vertical flame propagation, UL 1685), as demanded by Standard CSA C22.2 No. 233:17 for patch cables in machine control cabinets. The cables are therefore marked as “CMG UL listed”.
