The cable SKD05-HT 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 hightemperature resistant (up to +150°C).
The SKD05-HT 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 -50°C. It has an excellent resistance against mechanical stress, oils as well as greases and is flame retardant.
