A recent white paper, Ethernet Cable: A Guideline to Implementing Solid or Stranded Cables, is now available for download at www.askturck.com or on the TURCK website. The white paper is said to serve as a useful resource, letting readers identify and implement the ideal Ethernet cable to ensure reliable network performance in industrial applications.
Most every industry now relies on industrial Ethernet to network critical devices and control systems as well as to enhance process automation and improve efficiency. As one of the most widely used networking technologies, Ethernet connects more than 85% of LAN connected PCs and workstations, providing a flexible solution that delivers real-time data and status updates to ensure constant information accessibility and instantaneous data transfer. Understanding Ethernet cable classifications and their uses, in addition to proper cabling installation, lets users meet their diverse Ethernet cable application requirements.
