LAPP will unveil an innovative cable monitoring device alongside its broad lineup of industrial cables and connectors during Pack Expo 2022 at Booth LU-8758.
Etherline Guard is a new, plug-and-play cable monitoring device that acquires sensor data about the physical properties of industrial Ethernet data cables, allowing users to monitor actual cable performance and identify degradation over time. With Etherline Guard, users can implement a preventative maintenance strategy while avoiding unplanned downtimes and premature cable replacement.
This compact, easy-to-use device is well-suited for 100BASE-TX (up to 100 Mbit/s) data cables in accordance with IEEE 802.3 as well as EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP and 2-pair PROFINET applications.
In addition to Etherline Guard, visitors to the booth can also check out many other products from LAPP’s varied lineup. Highlights include:
- Skintop Multi-M strain relief bushing system. This multi-cable bushing system organizes multiple unharnessed cables and provides high packing density to save space in tight cabinet installations. Elastic gel technology gives each cable an IP68 seal.
- LAPP Ӧlflex VFD – light, medium, and heavy-duty cable range. Engineered to operate in harsh factory conditions, these VFD cables resist oil, water and impacts. LAPP will be showcasing our Ӧlflex VFD Slim, 1XL and 2XL – light, medium and heavy duty VFD cable range.
