Industry 4.0 cables & wires for automated production


Technical Information



Flexibility, efficiency and digitisation. This is industry 4.0 – the current subject of German manufacturing industry. Due to the complete linking and communication on all levels of the production process considerable amelioration with regard to productivity and flexibility may result.

Today, it is not quite clear how industry 4.0 in fully automated production will look like. Nevertheless, it is sure that a reliable transmission of increasing data volumes due to the steadily growing linking and communication of machine parts even under the most difficult conditions have to be ensured. As a consequence cables especially for machine construction, robotics or railway techniques are subject to extreme torsional stress and very high temperatures. These cables get in contact with different chemicals, oils or detergents. Also the subject of longevity with respect to industry 4.0 in industrial sectors are of basic importance.

70 years after its foundation, SAB Bröckskes presents itself highly innovative as answer to the mega trends of digitisation and industry 4.0 . The company presents a range of new industrial Ethernet cables 6, 6A, 7 and 7A that are not only extremely robust but also ensure a quick and efficient data transmission.

SAB is not only a cable manufacturer but also offers support in automation technique for example in the range of new communication systems for drive technology. Herewith, the individual requirements of the customer and the long-term experience of SAB as manufacturer of highly flexible cables are combined in new products . The quick and flexible production of sample lengths is no problem at all.

The cable manufacturer focus on two Industrial Gigabit Ethernet cables that have been especially developed for the increasing data transfer in automation technique. Besides the world innovation CATLine CAT 7A RT, a CAT 7 A cable for robot application, SAB Bröckskes is also going to present a cable chain cable with UL/ CSA approval – the CATLine CAT 7 A S.
