Halver, April 27, 2021 – In the age of IoT, Industry 4.0 and Big Data, fast and particularly reliable data transmission is becoming more important. As the applications become more and more complex, the size of the data packets to be transmitted increases in parallel. German connectivity specialist ESCHA offers a comprehensive product line that has been developed specifically for the transmission of high data rates of up to 10 Gb / sec in demanding industrial applications. By offering RJ45, M8 and M12 connectors, ESCHA has the right solutions for seamless data transmission from the office level through the control cabinet to the most compact sensor at the field level. All connectors have been designed and tested to current RF aspects in the company’s high frequency test lab. They meet the requirements of the most common Industrial Ethernet protocols and, thanks to their data transmission reserves, today provide a future-proof solution for the networks of tomorrow.
Connectivity for all field level applications
Data connectors are used in a variety of field level applications. These applications can be divided into three groups, having their individual connectivity requirements. The first group includes static applications, in which connectivity is permanently installed. For example on conveyor and transport belts or in high-rise warehouses. Therefore, ESCHA introduced a wallet with cost optimized PVC cable.
The second group has high demands on flexibility and robustness of connectors and cables at the same time. This includes drag chain applications, such as those typically found in mechanical engineering. For this area, ESCHA offers various PUR cables that can withstand up to three million bending cycles without risk.
The biggest challenges exist in robotic applications. In addition to the properties of the drag chain, the torsional properties of the connectivity are also important in these applications. Thanks to the connectivity of the “PROFINET robotic” range from ESCHA, data rates of up to 100Mbit / sec can be brought to the tip of a robot arm. The special cable called “S5100” withstands a combined load of horizontal movement (5 million cycles) and torsion (5 million cycles), as required by the industry standard “Type R”. In this way, for example, grippers with smart sensors or cameras can be reliably controlled via Fast Ethernet transmission.
Cabling is the basis of Industry 4.0
Networks are the backbone of automation and ever-increasing data volumes and transmission speeds can already be seen today. While today’s industrial communication networks are still to some extent fault-tolerant, production processes – as envisioned in Industry 4.0 – can only be implemented in the future with cabling High quality. Data connectors from ESCHA have been designed according to current HF aspects and consist of data transmission rates. They allow a scalable solution today and form the basis of the networks of tomorrow.
