LAPP announced the launch of new products to meet industry challenges and customer requirements. These new products also help LAPP expand it’s already diverse portfolio of over 40,000 products.
Industrial Communication: As part of its new launches, LAPP will be introducing the new ETHERLINE® T1 Y Flex 1x2x22/7 AWG, single pair ethernet cables that are a part of the ETHERLINE® T1 product family used in industrial machinery /systems and needs only one pair of cores to transmit data. This is an UL-certified 2-core data cable for high-speed information exchange that maintains the same high data rates while significantly reducing the setup required. Its small bending radii and small outer diameter makes it exceptionally lightweight, space-saving, easy to install and is indispensable for connection at the field level.
The new Power-Over-Data-Line compatible cable complies with IEEE 802.3bu and was specially designed for transmitting digital signals in the frequency range up to 600 MHz over distances of up to 40 m. It enables a simultaneous power and data supply to SPE terminals with low energy consumption (up to 50 W). The design of the SPE cable guarantees ideal protection against electromagnetic interference: It is double shielded with an aluminium-laminated foil and copper braid shield, along with a high degree of coverage (SF/UTP). In addition, the PVC outer sheath is resistant to acids and alkalis and is partially oil-resistant. UL/CSA certification enables the product to be used in North America.
In addition, there are highly flexible ETHERLINE® FD Cat.6 patch cables for continuous movement applications in cable chains. They are assembled with M12X connectors and enable fast data exchange at up to 10 Gbit/s over 60 m thanks to Cat.6 Ethernet. A laminated aluminium foil and copper braiding provide optimum protection against electromagnetic interference. A cross separator is used to protect the core pairs, allowing maximum mechanical stress. The connector has integrated vibration protection.
Another new feature is the ETHERLINE® CABINET CAT.6A.for the control cabinet in PROFINET® networks. Owing to its small bending radii, Cat.6A patch cables can prove especially useful in confined
spaces. They enable information to be exchanged quickly at up to 10 Gbit/s over 60 m. The connecting cables are assembled on both sides, saving time and eliminating the potential for errors when assembling them on site. The RJ45 connector is exceptionally narrow, meaning that the patch cables are ideally suited for devices with a very high port density. They are also approved for the North American market with UL/CSA certification.
Mechanical and plant engineering: Another new feature is the launch of ÖLFLEX® PLUG 540 P. This is a connection assembly with the proven ÖLFLEX® 540 P cable for appliance and cabinet construction. The ready-to-use connection assembly saves time during installation and impresses with its multi-strength cable, compatibility with various connector systems and the third-party certification. It is suitable for different applications depending on the number of cores, conductor cross-section and connector type. The 3-core versions with protection rating IP 44 are even suitable for outdoor use in Europe and can be exposed to rain.
The cable strain relief is already integrated into the metric, liquid-tight SILVYN® FPAD-M conduit gland. It remains reliably sealed with a lock protection. The robust polyamide makes it more oil-resistant and mechanically resistant. The SILVYN® FPAD-M is available in various metric sizes and two protection classes (IP 66 or IP 68) and can be optimally supplemented with the established protective conduits SILVYN® FPAS and SILVYN® HCC.
