Profinet cables are industrial Ethernet cables, sometimes referred to as industrial Cat5 or two-pair Cat5, for the cabling of industrial fieldbus systems with the globally accepted TCP/IP protocol. They are suitable for fixed or dynamic flexible industrial automation applications and they offer excellent active and passive electrical interference resistance as required by Profinet system and Cat5e specifications. These cables are widely used in drive technology such as transport and conveyors, and machine tool manufacturing.

Profinet PUR cable application
Profinet PUR are flexible fieldbus cable for fixed or dynamic applications, suitable for profinet Type B applications. They have a quad (2 pairs) construction with high levels of shielding efficiency and offer excellent electrical transmission performance as required from the profinet and Cat5E specifications.
These cables' sheathing is Halogen-Free and Flame Retardant.
Profinet Type A cable application
Profinet Type A cables are suitable for the cabling of industrial fieldbus systems with the globally accepted TCP/IP protocol. Their properties include a high active and passive interference resistance and they are free from paint wetting disruptive substances (LABS-free).
Profinet Type A cables offer Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) sheathing, which makes them suitable for use in public buildings to reduce the risk to human life or to sensitive equipment in the event of fire.
