SAB Introduces Industry 4.0 Cables for Automated Production Processes

The German manufacturing sector is currently focused on the current trend towards ‘Industry 4.0’ technologies, which offer new opportunities for flexibility, efficiency and digitisation.

Due to the complete linking and communication on all levels of the production process considerable amelioration with regard to productivity and flexibility may result.

Today, it is not quite clear how industry 4.0 in fully automated production will look like.

Nevertheless, it is sure that a reliable transmission of increasing data volumes due to the steadily growing linking and communication of machine parts, even under the most difficult conditions, has to be ensured.

As a consequence cables, especially for machine construction, robotics or railway techniques, are subject to extreme torsional stress and very high temperatures.

These cables get in contact with different chemicals, oils or detergents. Also, the subject of longevity with respect to industry 4.0 in industrial sectors is of basic importance.

Seventy years after its foundation, SAB Bröckskes presents itself as a highly innovative answer to the mega trends of digitisation and industry 4.0.

The company presents a range of new industrial Ethernet cables 6, 6A, 7 and 7A, which are not only extremely robust but also ensure a quick and efficient data transmission.

SAB is not only a cable manufacturer but also offers support in automation technique, for example in the range of new communication systems for drive technology.

Herewith, the individual requirements of the customer and the long-term experience of SAB as a manufacturer of highly flexible cables are combined in new products.

The quick and flexible production of sample lengths is no problem at all.

The cable manufacturer focuses on two Industrial Gigabit Ethernet cables, which have been specially developed for the increasing ‘data transfer in automation’ technique.

Besides the world-leading CATLine CAT 7A RT, a CAT 7 A cable for robot application, SAB Bröckskes is also going to present a cable chain cable with UL / CSA approval, the CATLine CAT 7 A S.

Industrial Ethernet Cables and Wires Category 6A and 7A:

CATLine CAT 7 A RT for robot application Gigabit Ethernet cable with UL/ CSA 

The cable CATLine CT 7 A RT for robot applications is suitable for rough industrial conditions in automation techniques, for example at high temperatures, pollution by oil and aggressive chemicals.

CATLine CAT 7A S for cable chain application Gigabit Ethernet cable with UL / CSA 

The cable chain CATLine CAT 7A S cable is suitable for rough industrial conditions in cable chains, for example at high temperatures, pollution by oil and aggressive chemicals.

The temperature-resistant cable CATLine CAT 6A HT is suitable for rough industrial conditions at fixed temperatures of -90°C / 180°C and flexible temperatures of -55°C / 180°C.

CATLine CAT 7A DR reeling CAT 7A Gigabit Ethernet cable

Our reeling CATLine CAT 7A cables have been developed for different applications whenever a considerable data volume must be transferred safely.

For example, they are used in theatre staging, signal transmission and mobile trash rake cleaning or high rack storage applications.

CATLine CAT 7A R – Rail CAT 7A

CATLine CAT 7A R, according to DIN EN 45545-2, is especially appropriate for rail applications.

The cable fulfills the requirements of no flame propagation of DIN EN 60332-3-25 and DIN EN 50305 section 9.1.1 / 9.1.2, and is flame-retardant and self-extinguishing in accordance with DIN EN 60332-1-2.

Special solutions for special applications

The production possibilities of SAB range from basic types and standard dimensions to special cables according to the individual requirements of our customers.

New productions are already possible for small quantities, especially interesting for small and pilot productions.
