7 Factors to Choose the Right  Industrial Ethernet Cable    Our one and the only requirement is high-speed internet from any network.                         A successful network and that too in terms of speed depends on its                           components. That includes switches controllers connectors and               Ethernets. Amongst all Ethernet cables have some extra weightage and are                       responsible for better performance. They pass data at high-speed rates.                     For example ​CAT 6 cables can operate frequencies up to 250MHz. At the                           same time CAT 5 cables operate frequencies up to 100MHz. The CAT 5                           cables are also suitable for 100Mbit applications using two-pair cables.  To simply your understanding the below table specifies all the Industry                       frequency requirements:    1

But when you choose cables for the industrial purpose you need to                         understand the industrial requirements to ​choose the right cable for your                       network​.  Size of a Conductor  Conductors are one of the reasons behind fulfilling our needs of high data                           speed over long distances. Especially the conductor size. It is important to                         note that a standard Ethernet cable doesn’t have the same performance                       capacities as a solid conductor. Ethernet conductors are 26 and 24AWG                       size. To get better results it is advisable to utilize the conductors of bigger                             size for long distance.    Profinet standard has introduced 22AWG cables. They provide even better                     performance over 26 and 24AWG cables. Coming to conductor’s types                     there three defined within the Profinet standard.  1. Stationary  2. Flexible  3. Special  2

slide 3:

If you use 22AWG cables you will need to correct RJ45 connector. Because                           many conductors are not compatible with the increased wire size and                       Profinet cables’ larger outside diameter.  Shielded versus Unshielded Cables  The selection of industrial cable is dependent on the environment at your                         workplace. Unshielded cables are used in general for normal work                     environments. If your work environment is noisy it is recommended to use                         shielded cables. Shielding part is made of a foil or a braid to protect the                               signals. In the case of extra durability and noise protection you can use a                             combination of foil and braid shielded cable.  Cable Selection  Industrial cable requirements expect a high level of security standards.                     These cables should have robust constructions than the ones used for                       general use. The most obvious reason is the environment. When it comes                         to chemical industries they require an extra level of safety for cables.  For example materials such as polyurethane PUR are used to provide                       mineral oil resistance. Also they are halogen-free. ​Ethernet cables for                     industrial use are available with solid conductors as well. They only suite                         static applications. If you want to use cables in a flexible way standard                           3

conductors are of a good choice. But for a continuous application                       conductors with even high standards are of the best choice.  Packet Stability  Data packet drops can cause a great loss of data money and energy.                           Generally packet drop occurs when one or more packets of data traveling                         across a computer network don’t reach their destination. When trying to get                         Ethernet networks for Industrial area it is important to consider the                       determinism. When your network has a deterministic Ethernet system it                     ensures packet transfer without any drops. Another way is by using quality                         internet services. It prioritizes the sensitive traffic within the network and                       makes sure that there are no packet drops in the system. This way you                             overcome the threats of an Ethernet system to make it more suitable for                           the factory use.  Environment   As mentioned above the environment is one of the biggest factors to                         consider while choosing Ethernet cables. Several conditions like humidity                   vibrations dust and similar issues might affect the networking equipment.                     This may disrupt the signal transmission through switches damage                   hardware. It also affects the overall network performance. That’s the                     4

reason you have to choose the right ethernet solutions for your industrial                         use.  Identify the Requirement Then Select the Cable  To avoid network failures in your industry the first step is to identify the                             requirement. Based on that you can select the right type of cables for which                             suits your industry requirements. As they are a vital part of network                         success choosing the wrong one will never get your industrial network on a                           right track.
