L-com has launched a new series of bulk cable, field term plugs and cable assemblies designed to address Profinet network applications.
L-com’s new line of outdoor/industrial Profinet bulk cable is designed for extreme applications where rugged, shielded cables are required. It features oil, chemical and ultra-violet-resistant jackets and is designed for PLTC Profinet-rated applications that meet Category 5e, 2-pair electrical specs.
This bulk cable is available with solid or stranded 22AWG conductors, which are suitable for Profinet Type-A, B or C applications. The stranded bulk cable is high-flex-rated and has been tested to 1 & 10 million flex cycles. This new bulk cable is Category 5e channel and PoE 802.3-rated for up to 100 meters.
The new shielded, field terminable, Category 5e-rated Profinet plugs are specifically designed for larger gauge Profinet cables and are available in straight or right-angle versions. The angled version can be set at any 90° or 45° increment during termination. The IDC termination for these plugs is quick and easy. The optional HT-TSPFT hand tool is recommended but is not required for terminating these plugs.
L-com’s Profinet cable assemblies are constructed using the new TFDP501 and TFDP503-series bulk cable, offering customers both solid and stranded conductor options, according to Product Manager Dustin Guttadauro. They’re terminated with the new TSPFTPFNS-series field termination RJ45 plugs as well as M12 D-code male and female connectors. Off-the-shelf lengths range from 0.5 to 10 meters and custom length versions can be ordered with no minimum order quantities.
