PROFINET cables for movement

What are PROFINET cables?

PROFINET stands for Process Field Network and, like every Industrial Ethernet standard, uses the TCP/IP and IT standards, allowing end-to-end use in manufacturing and process automation. Generally speaking, PROFINET fits into the Industrial Ethernet standard alongside bus systems such as Sercos, EtherCat, and CC-Link IE. The advantage of such networks, apart from potential real-time capability, is the modularly structured concept which allows the user to quickly and easily choose the functionality himself. This makes it possible to design the type of cyclic data exchange across all PROFINET devices to meet the ever-increasing speed requirements and establish countless diagnostic capabilities in real time. The seamless integration of the other fieldbus systems with a PROFINET interface should not be underestimated.

Which cable is suited for your Ethernet application?

chainflex® cables for connecting several fieldbus systems

At igus®, you can choose between nine different cable qualities depending on the requirements and environment. The various bus cable series offer a different structure and various jacket materials in the form of PVC, PUR or TPE, so that the right cable can be selected for every application area to achieve the longest service life in your automation system. However, igus® is not only the right partner for durable and flexible use, it also helps you introduce lean and efficient processes quickly. You can rely on our offer with the best price-performance ratio and take advantage of our support with the price check.

All chainflex® PROFINET cables have one thing in common. All chainflex® cables are subject to the same quality standards. It does not matter whether it you are looking at a cost-effective cable from the CF888 family or a cable for the highest demands and smallest bend radii, as is the case with the CFBUS.LB. Therefore, igus® GmbH also grants a 36-month functional guarantee on all chainflex® cables with service lives of up to 10 million double strokes for bus cables.

For fully integrated automation and engineering systems, igus® also offers readycable® harnessed cables as service from one source. Each PROFINET cable can be supplied with open ends or harnessed. You can choose from a wide range of pre-assembled industrial connectors; whether with injection-moulded standard M12 connectors (D-coded) or field-assembled as RJ45 . This means that your Industry 4.0 solution can be implemented directly, as PROFINET is used by default on many control systems from Siemens, Allen Bradley, Bosch etc.
