EtherCAT and fieldbus cables
The EtherCAT and fieldbus cables ensure reliable data transmission and are optimized for industrial applications and harsh environmental conditions.
Power cables are available in diverse codings and sizes to support reliable voltage supply for your application.
The comprehensive product range of sensor cables can be configurated individually or as a cable set for quick installation on the machine.
The combination of power supply, signal and data communication in one connector. Hybrid cables are available in application-specific sizes and performance classes.
Motor and feedback cables for permanent installation or highly flexible for use on drag-chains and robots.
Fully tested plug-and-play solutions from the automation specialists
Beckhoff offers an extensive range of preassembled cables for safe, faster, and error-free installation. The selection of preassembled cables includes numerous lengths and variants with no minimum order quantity; standard lengths and custom lengths are available ex stock.
Our pre-assembled cables include connectors that are designed according to the latest standards, such as IEC 61076-2-111 for M12 power connectors or IEC 61076-2-114, which specifies the P coding for EtherCAT P connectors.
The assemblies are fully tested electrically, mechanically, and optically and have at least one pre-installed connector.
The reliability of these products is guaranteed through an individual batch number. In this way, it is possible to trace which material was used for assembly and which staff member carried out the respective work step and at what time. In addition to the simple configuration check and visual inspection of the product, advanced tests are carried out, such as high-voltage tests to locate damage to the core insulation or a resistance test to check the correct cable length.
