SKD04-T.flex-weblogo_gross.png

 

The cable SKD04-T.flex is a system cable for connecting digital camera systems and was particulary developed to be used in hazardous areas. It meets the requirements for cables and wires according to DIN EN 60079-14. When using the applicable cable gland, it is possible to insert the cable directly into flameproof enclosures. It is high-flexible and drag-chain-suitable. The SKD04-T.flex is a high speed cable for industrial Ethernet for fixed installations in dry, wet, or damp rooms. The cable meets the transmission characteristics for Category 6 of IEC 61156-5 Ed. 2 even at -60°C. Gigabit Ethernet applications can sbe transmitted securely at a lengh of up to 100 metres. It has an excellent resistance against mechanical stress, oils as well as greases and is halogenfree.
