Industrial environments are becoming more connected through Industrial Ethernet Protocols such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, which reduces costs and simplifies interconnection. However, the unique nature of the factory floor brings new challenges to the Ethernet environment.
All Industrial Ethernet applications are designed to work on twisted pair copper or fiber cabling similar to that used in “regular” Ethernet, with some modifications for the factory environment. The International Standards Organization (ISO) and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) developed a set of specifications to define potential environmental conditions within industrial sites.
With more than half of Industrial Ethernet problems being related to cabling it can be difficult to troubleshoot. That’s why we have created the Industrial Ethernet Cable Testing Poster as quick reference for cable installations and/or troubleshooting.
This poster outlines:
- Industrial Cable Topologies
- Common Connector types
- Industrial Ethernet Connectors
- TIA, ISO and PROFINET wiring color codes
- Common Cable Testing Methods
