Supplier of signal transmission products, Belden , is now able to provide a set of industrial Ethernet cabling solutions, including most associated networking protocols.
Belden's industrial Ethernet products ensure a high level of quality, consistency and performance in the industrial environment. These active device and media solutions are also designed for complete interoperability with multiple industry standards to afford customers complete autonomy.
Industrial Ethernet deployment has reached far beyond merely connecting workstations and consoles. In today's industrial networks, data transmission cables are used throughout the manufacturing or processing plant – often in extremely harsh and sometimes hazardous environments.
In industrial plants, Ethernet cables and connectivity are typically used to carry signals between controllers or from controllers to devices to make events happen deterministically or on a pre-defined schedule.
Few networking applications are more critical and demanding than industrial sites where data transmission errors or failure can lead to unsafe conditions, interruption of critical industrial automation and control functions, lost data and costly downtime.
That's why Belden offer a comprehensive range of industrial Ethernet cabling solution, all specifically engineered and ruggedly constructed to ensure optimum network performance and uptime, even in the harshest settings.
All of Belden's Industrial Ethernet cables and connectivity products are built to withstand the entire spectrum of environmental and mechanical hazards - from temperature extremes and sunlight, to solvents, oils, chemicals and moisture.
Included in Belden's range of industrial Ethernet cabling solutions are TrayOptic and FiberExpress optical fiber cables and connectivity and DataTuff copper-based cables and connectivity, all of which are suitable for Industrial ethernet application and the following protocols:
- ProfiNet - "Custom designs only"
- Fieldbus HSE
- MODBUS TCP
