The merits of industrial Ethernet are directly affected by the advantages and disadvantages of the cable. In addition to being subject to high electromagnetic interference (EMI), industrial environments are often affected by temperature, dust, humidity, and other factors that are not common in the office environment or in the home.
Different cables for different networks, should be based on the need to choose their own environment for the cable, such as 10MB of the network, industrial Ethernet select the five types of cable can be, and 100MB network with 5e class is more appropriate. Category 6 cable can be achieved in the range of 55 meters 10GB network, 100 meters within the scope of 1GB network. If you want to achieve in the range of 100 meters 10GB, then 6e class is more appropriate.
According to ANSI / TIA-1005 standard, we know that Category 6 cable or better cable can meet the requirements of host or equipment connection in industrial environment. In addition, the impact of interference and external EMI noise, Category 6 cable compared to Category 5 cable and 5e cable is much stronger. Due to the harsh industrial environment, industrial Ethernet the design of industrial Ethernet cables must be able to withstand the physical erosion of the cable in the surrounding environment. When installing the cable, industrial Ethernet make sure that the RJ45 connector and socket are at the appropriate level. More effective use is the use of long-distance wiring socket. When wiring for short distances, use a pre-prepared patch cable and install the connector in the factory.
