Berk-Tek's Industrial Ethernet Cabling Solutions ensure reliable and worry-free Control, Monitor and Process applications under harsh industrial environments, for the best production performance.
Anatomy of an Industrial Ethernet Environment
Zone A: Infrastructure IT cabling - Light Duty Cables
This area is the link between the office and the industrial environment. Cables are installed in a ceiling tray and do not come into contact with machinery or harsh conditions. Zone A typically includes access controls, IP cameras and wireless access points.
Zone B: Control panel Interconnection - Medium Duty Cables
This area is within your industrial environment, so cables are exposed to variable temperatures, electrical noise, dust, and other conditions. Zone B cabling connects your PLCs, HMIs, PC-based controllers, and other monitoring devices.
Zone C: The most demanding conditions - Heavy Duty Cables
This is the most extreme area of your industrial environment, where cables are exposed to repetitive motion, extreme temperatures, oil, dust, and humidity. Zone C cabling connects your motors, robotics, tanks, valves, and process automation equipment.
