TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, now complements its’ Sensor/Actuator cable assemblies with Data Communication solutions by introducing the Fieldbus cable assemblies.
First developed more than two decades ago, many different field networks still continue to dominate Industrial automation and process control. Fieldbus networks seems to be very practical at the lowest level of the automation pyramid and are critical element of Industry 4.0, IIoT and beyond for end devices that do not require the bandwidth but do need the ability to have power and signal in the same cable.
The new A and B-coded M12 cable assemblies comply with Profibus, DeviceNet and CC-link protocols, offering multiple options for a variety of needs that makes TE an one-stop shop. They have 360-degree shielding against EMI for complete protection for signal and data transmission, and are rated IP67 for resistance to dust and water. The assemblies are overmolded in either PVC or halogen-free polyurethane (PUR) cables, suitable for drag chain applications or torsional stress, depending on customer performance requirements.
Assemblies are produced in many customer-specific plug-and-play configurations to enable design flexibility and quick installation in most industrial environments. Applications for the new assemblies lie in numerous areas of industry, including process control systems, robotics and automation, production equipment, machine tools and material handling.
TE’s Fieldbus M12 cable assemblies are available as single-ended or double-ended, in straight and angled versions, all shielded variants. Various cable types are offered depending on the application requirements. The predefined offering in length of 0.5, to 15 meters covers a vast range of customer needs on the market, while customized cable assemblies in different lengths provide a solution for specific needs. All can be used in combination with TE’s male/female connectors.
