ETHERLINE® GUARD is a new, plug-and-play cable monitoring device that acquires sensor data about the physical properties of industrial Ethernet data cables, allowing users to monitor actual cable performance and identify degradation over time. With ETHERLINE® GUARD, users can implement a preventative maintenance strategy while avoiding unplanned downtimes and premature cable replacement.
This compact, easy-to-use device is well-suited for 100BASE-TX (up to 100 Mbit/s) data cables in accordance with IEEE 802.3 as well as EtherCAT®, EtherNET/IP™ and 2-pair PROFINET® applications.
In addition to ETHERLINE® GUARD, visitors to the booth also checked out many other products from LAPP’s varied lineup. Highlights include:
-SKINTOP® MULTI-M strain relief bushing system. This multi-cable bushing system organizes multiple unharnessed cables and provides high packing density to save space in tight cabinet installations. Elastic gel technology gives each cable an IP68 seal.
-LAPP ӦLFLEX® VFD – light, medium, and heavy-duty cable range. Engineered to operate in harsh factory conditions, LAPP ӦLFLEX® VFD cables resist oil, water and impacts. LAPP also showcased their ӦLFLEX® VFD Slim, 1XL and 2XL – their light, medium and heavy duty VFD cable range.
