L-com Global Connectivity, a preferred manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has announced that it has released a new series of Ethernet cable assemblies that feature high-flex, braided shield cable construction.

Designed for applications where standard patch cables would fail, these exclusive ultra-flexible cable assemblies are rated to 10 million flex-cycles at 1.82″ (46.4mm) for continuous motion and automation applications.

This new cable series includes the TRD855HFB family which features shielded RJ45 connectors on each end of the assembly and Category 5e rated cable, the TRG515-P6D family which features shielded RJ45 connectors on one end of the assembly and RJ45 GigE connectors on the other end and the TRG516-P6D family which features RJ45 GigE connectors on both ends of the assembly.

All of these new cable families feature a tinned copper braided shield to protect against EMI/RFI interference and they are EIA568 color-coded for compatibility with standards based installations. These new high-flex cables are ideal for continuous motion, factory automation, robotics and Machine Vision applications.

“This new cable series was specifically designed to address our industrial customer’s requirements for rugged, high-flex cables that can stand up to the continuous flexing and motion often encountered in factory automation and robotics applications. Furthermore, the GigE connectors featured on some of these assemblies ensures a secure connection to address high vibration environments,” said Dustin Guttadauro, Product Manager.

L-com’s new high-flex, continuous motion Ethernet cable assemblies are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
