How Strong Your Ethernet Cables  Should be    Setting up an Ethernet system is challenging. While different industries                     have their own set of requirements it is a vital thing to choose a Network                               Ethernet Cable that is flexible to confront industrial obstacles. Its uses are                         different. For example the cable of your office’s desk would not be able to                             handle the industrial usage. Considering the latest market scenario ​Cat 6A                       cables are perfectly suitable for industrial use. If you still use cat5e cables                           they may not be able to fulfill performance standards.  Let’s look out for some situations wherein a low-quality not standardize                       cables fail to provide an expected performance.  Installation  While you install the network ethernet cable in the system a                       commercial-grade with excessive force might stretch the cable. According                   1

to commercial standards the maximum pulling tension should be                   25-pound. Means if the cable’s length is 100 feet you will end up with the                               cable length of 100 feet and 2 inches. Eventually it results in signal loss                             and performance delay. Such type of effects limits the distance that your                         cable can suffice.  Furthermore when you settle up the cables the twisted pair may open up. It                             causes coupling from pair-to-pair returns loss and susceptibility to ambient                     EMI/RFI. Eventually it becomes high maintenance providing slower speed                   crosstalks and gapping effects.  UV Effects  Temperature plays a vital role when it comes to cable performance. And                         that too for industrial environments. For example extreme cold makes your                       cable stiff and brittle to work with. On the other hand extremely hot                           temperatures can affect the plastic used in it. That’s why it’s important to                           select the bulk network cables which are resistant to ambient                     temperatures.  Cat5e cable expands at a rate of 0.4 per degree Celsius above 20° C. At                               60° C it may expand by 16. Therefore it is critical to select a ​network                               2

ethernet cable that offers industrial-strength high-temperature             performance. Oil Contacts  When you select a cable for the industrial use make sure that they are                             resistant to fluids. The problem with the low-quality cable is that they soak                           in the petroleum-based fluids.  As a result it might impact your mechanical strength leaving the inner core                           prone to pollution. While choosing cables for industrial use make sure to                         check oil-resistant jackets that combat with such challenges.  Rough Usage  Network cables especially used for industries might experience harsh                   usage on a daily base. The productivity and speed of the cable are                           depended on data transmission. And to ensure the network performance                     check if your cable is qualified for such industrial-grade jackets.  3

And in the market there are cables like ​bulk network cables which provides                           an extra measure of protection combining bonded-pair technology with                   interlocked components to provide the protection against such rough uses. Grounding  This is the most important step for effective shielding. A proper grounding                         can degrade the shield effect. Ideally it is considered to ground the shield                           at only one point. When there is combined interference on the shield the                           current might drain into the ground. That too before the pairs which are                           already underneath and affected.  This combination of unbonded versus bonded UTP cable reflects the                     potential gaps that occur within unbonded cables. It might slow down the                         installation. Therefore the ground currents passing on the shield can                     actually make the shield a source of interference on the signal-carrying                       pairs. Noise  When you select a balanced cable it performs stably against loud noise                         instances. The bonded-pair cables provide the approximation of balance.                   Even after the installation and daily harsh use Therefore the cables with                         4

such features can either make or break an Industrial Ethernet application in                         the presence of any type of noise. Industry Standards  A standard for every cable is the main benefit when it comes to Ethernet                             systems. Telecommunications Industry Association TIA associated with               the Electronic Industries Alliance EIA manages the current standard for                     the commonly used cables.  ● The TIA/EIA-568B describes the standard for commercial uses.  ● The TR-42 Committee describes the standard for               telecommunications infrastructure.  ● The TR-42.9 Subcommittee covers industrial telecommunications             infrastructure. In a Nutshell Environmental uses affect your networking system if your network ethernet                     cables are not up to industry standards. Although it is critical to render                           reliable performance to your uses. Therefore make sure to install cables                       that provide high-level strength and stability.  5
