The Category 5e 600V AWM-rated cables include Bonded-Pair technology and are suitable for use in listed motor control centers (MCC) and switch gear in tough EMI environments. The DataTuff 4-pair shielded cables can to be used on or within a listed cabinet or machine, as well as more traditional Ethernet applications. They are not, however, intended for 600 V power delivery. Both cables are Ethernet/IP compliant.
The Bonded-Pair technology contributes to the Industrial Ethernet cables’ stability and electrical performance. The conductor insulations of each of the cable pairs are affixed to each other along their longitudinal axes, which eliminates gaps between the conductors.
