XS5, XS2, XS6 Features 6

Notes: 1. We recommend for 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T, use STP (shielded twisted-pair) cable of category 5 or higher
              and 1000BASE-T, use STP cable of category 5e or higher with double shielding (aluminum tape and braiding).
          2. For Power over Ethernet (PoE) applicat ions, use cable of category 5 or higher and make sure to check the
              rated values of both the PoE device and Ethernet Cables and Connectors.

2. Select by cable use environment

Use RJ45 connectors for in-panel wiring and M12 connectors (Round Water - resistant Connectors) with IP67 protection for wiring outside the control panel where environmental resistance is required.
