Cables and Connectors for EtherCAT® and Other Industrial Ethernet Networks

Cables with Standard RJ45 Connectors

• The Standard RJ45 Connectors reduce cable routing space. LSZH* cables are AWG26 with an outer diameter of 6.3 mm.
  PUR Cables are AWG26 with an outer diameter of 6.0 mm.
• Cable colors include blue, yellow, or green.
• LSZH cables are available in 12 lengths from 0.2 to 20 m and PUR cables are available in 10 lengths from 0.5 to 20 m.
Note. PUR cables are double-shielded cables with overall braiding and individual aluminum tape on each wire pair.
         LSZH cable is a single shielded aluminum tape which satisfies the standard values of the communication and noise
* Low-smoke zero-halogen cables.

Shield Effectiveness Data for Rugged RJ45 Connectors and M12 Connectors (Waterproof)

The following data is the results of OMRON testing. Shield effectiveness may vary for your environment and application conditions.

Comparison of Shield Effectiveness with Product without a Double Shield

The following table shows the differences with a structure without a double shield. Higher numeric values show greater shield effectiveness.
