Cable into the Future: Industrial Ethernet with 10 Gbps
Today's networks generally communicate using Ethernet with 100 megabits per second (Mbps). Many applications, such as cameras for quality inspection, servers to document quality data and scanners that identify components, demand higher data rates. Communications be established with the control system.
Data transmission rates of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) are standard, 10 Gbps will be necessary in the near future.
Classic fieldbuses and generic cabling no longer meet the requirements of high speed networks. To reliably transmit data in this environment, components must be able to cope with the mechanical effects as well as the high electromagnetic load.
