Pre-terminated Ethernet cables with RJ45 connectors provide reliable communications for industrial applications. These cables are available in various lengths and options to meet application requirements. Also available are RJ45 connectors that provide reliable terminations for custom cables.
Ethernet is a multi-purpose communication protocol considered the data standard for industrial applications.
AutomationDirect offers several PLCs, HMIs, and drives that support Ethernet protocols for data distribution,
software programming, and configuration. These Ethernet cables are ideal for all our Ethernet-based products
and other devices that support Ethernet communications.
Designed for Industrial Use
Noise interference radiated from electrical components often associated with factory floor environments
can result in partial or complete data loss, which may delay or completely block communication in
extremely noisy environments. These industrial Ethernet cables are designed with additional protections,
including foil shields and shielded connectors, to reduce the effects of (EMI) electromagnetic interference.
