AlphaWire adds 10 new industrial Ethernet products

The expanded Alpha Essentials Industrial Ethernet collection includes 10 new constructions in categories: CAT 5 PROFINET, CAT 5e, CAT 6, and CAT 7. The new constructions are now available from Aerco, the distributor and stockist of electrical and electronic components servicing hi-rel markets.

The very wide range of industrial Ethernet categories From AlphaWire offers customers improved component integration and bandwidth (bandwidth capacity extends up to 10 Gbps (Gbit/s). All new constructions are fully compatible with RJ45 connectors of either T-568A or T-568B pin assignments.

Alpha Wire’s Alpha Essentials Ethernet cables are an ideal solution for discrete and process manufacturing, such as applications within the robotics, medical, and automation industries. The expanded offerings now include a CAT 7 construction (part number 74004) that enables customers to future-proof their industrial network. Part number 74010 is a CAT 6 PVC-jacketed Ethernet cable in a flat construction, ideal when space is at a premium.

There are seven (7) new CAT 5e cables in the Alpha Essentials Ethernet family, including two built to PROFINET industry standards (part numbers 74001 and 74005). PROFINET has proven to be one of the most reliable standards for industrial networking in automation, connecting devices and systems while promoting higher quality manufacturing. In addition to the PROFINET cables, there is a CAT 5e LSZH construction (part number 74007, ZH-PUR jacket) suitable for the medical and transportation industries.

All cables in the expanded Alpha Essentials Ethernet line feature jacketing material of ZH-PUR, PVC, and TPE. These specific jackets are ideal for meeting the harshest environmental conditions. The temperature ranges for this collection fall between -40°C to +90°C. Cables are available in conductor sizes from 26-22 AWG, with varying flexibility (continuous, torsional, and moderate flex), and approvals (VW-1, EN 50173, ISO/IEC 11801, & more). Whether customers need an Ethernet cable to meet harsh environments or flexibility for a moving application, there is a construction available to support their system.

Standard constructions are not subject to minimum order quantity requirements and are available in 500 ft put up lengths (7602F offered in 500 ft and 1000 ft lengths) from Aerco now.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
