Hybrid PROFINET cables

Harting has released a new range of hybrid PROFINET cables which combine PROFINET data and 24V power distribution in a single cable for ease of installation and enhanced reliability. The new hybrid cables are designed for use with the Harting PROFINET HanR 3A RJ45 connector family.

The new design significantly reduces on-site installation time. The data lines are configured in a star-quad configuration. The cables support Category 5/100MHz data communications, and can be stripped very quickly. Rugged FRNC-based sheathing material makes the cable easier for the installer to handle and provides better protection.

These hybrid cables offer an suitable solution for harsh industrial environments. They are RoHS compliant and UL approved. The PROFINET hybrid cables are now available, and they are also used in the fabrication of Harting system cables.

All PROFINET components are tested using the criteria contained in the PROFINET test specification to ensure maximum reliability of Harting PROFINET cabling. A manufacturer's declaration, which is available for download at, guarantees PROFINET conformity and performance.

Harting has also produced a new PROFINET industrial cabling brochure which provides in-depth information about PROFINET cabling strategies and systems.
