Industrial cables resist temperatures up to 250 °C
19 May 2014
Camera cables used for industrial applications often need to withstand elevated thermal and mechanical loads. As a rule the temperature range for standard cables with PVC in image processing applications lies between -10?°C and +60?C°, in the case of PUR cables, temperatures between -30?°C and +80?C° are possible. Cameras can be operated at high on-site temperatures, for example, the inspection and monitoring of furnaces in the steel and glass industry using a customised integrated camera protection housing by STEMMER IMAGING. Conventional cables without further protective measures are, however, often inadequate for thermal reasons.
Based on a new cable material, STEMMER IMAGING is now able to manufacture high quality CAT6 cables for extreme applications which cover the temperature range from -40 °C to +180 °C and can even resist up to +250 °C for short periods. The material is designed as a permanently flexible cable with a minimum flex radius of >140 mm and can be supplied in customised cable lengths together with robust, field-assembly RJ-45 plugs. The experts of the Puchheim-based company would be pleased to discuss your precise requirements for a customised cable solution.
