Cable excellence engineered through quality

Fieldbus

To further the co-ordinated development of each of the fieldbus systems there are respective independent organisations that act as approvals authorities.


They ensure that individual component suppliers work in an open interoperable environment allowing free sourcing of individual components to build automated manufacturing systems. They also ensure that the quality and performance of these components including cable will comply with the requirements of the system overall. As advances in one area occur they are uniformly implemented across the rest of the system components amongst the association members. This philosophy in itself ensures the reliability and future proofing of the industrial network and qualifies that each individual suppliers component work smoothly within the network.

Belcom is pleased to be associated with a number of these organisations both directly as members of AS-interface expert alliance, Profibus international together with Leoni Special Cables who are also members of Open Devicenet Vendoes association (ODVA), CC-Link Partnership Association (CLPA), Industrial Automation Open Networking Alliance (IONA) and Interbus, developing the FieldLink range of FieldBus cables to meet the latest performance requirements of each network for the widest range of operating environments to suit any industry.

AS-Interface

In the factory automation the AS-Interface system is used in various sectors and is developed as an alternative to conventional parallel wiring of the sensors and actuators. The yellow profile cable is an unshielded flat cable with 2-cores. It transfers data and power for actuators and sensors. For particular applications additional black cables are used.

CC-Link

CC-Link* is the leading open network in Japan and Asia generally. It is also becoming well accepted in both Europe and North America thanks to its ease of use, strong productivity features and high performance. CC‑Link offers a comprehensive open network architecture that reaches from enterprise IT connectivity to simple digital I/O on the shop floor. It has a global installed base of nearly 11,000,000 nodes. 

Thanks to a large number of automation devices of various manufacturers, communication can take place across a single cable and thereby enable consistent and effective production.

LEONI Special Cables GmbH with its Business Unit Automation & Drives is a member of the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA).

ControlNET

ControlNet™  is an open industrial network protocol and is managed by “Open DeviceNet Vendors Association “ or ODVA . ControlNet™ is a real-time control network giving high-speed transmission of both critical I/O and interlocking data and message data including upload/download of programming and configuration data on a single physical media link.

ControlNet™ network’s exhibit highly efficient data transfer capability and significantly enhances I/O performance with peer-to-peer communication in any system or application where it is used. ControlNet™ has a data transfer rate of 5 Mbps and is in the mid-range of the three popular networks with EtherNet/IP ranging from 10 Mbps to 1 Gbps and DeviceNet ranging from 125 to 500 Kbps.

DeviceNET

In North America, DeviceNet* has established itself as the leading bus system for automation technology. To live up to the demands of the US market, all DeviceNet cables have the American UL approval. This means that all of the products can be exported overseas without difficulty.

These cables are suitable for fixed and flexible installation. The flexible installation types feature a PVC or low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) external sheath. PUR or PVC sheath material is used for flexible wiring applications. This is suitable for use in mechanical engineering or robotics. Sunlight and oil resistant are two additional features of our DeviceNet cable types.

PROFINET/Industrial Ethernet

Industrial Ethernet has defined the trends in industrial communication for more than 20 years. It is and will remain the standard for Ethernet networks when taking into account the special demands in industrial environments.

PROFINET enables rapid and secure data transfer on all levels and thereby facilitates innovative machinery and plant concepts. Due to its flexibility and openness, PROFINET provides the user with maximum freedom in designing machinery and plant architecture.

Depending on the intended use, the cable needs to withstand the mechanical, chemical and thermal loads and simultaneously has to maintain the defined transfer properties.

Belcom Cables Ltd is a member of PROFIBUS International.
