Hradil Spezialkabel, specialist cables, has launched a new compact (reduced outside diameter), low-temperature resistant, drum-reeling CAN bus cable with high data throughput. The CAN (controller area network) protocol was developed by Bosch in 1983 and offers advantages of noise immunity, low cost and real-time capability. The cable offers impedance 120 ohms, tensile strength 2 000 N and resistance to fuels, cooling agents and lubricants.
Noise-free video or data transmission is ensured even at low temperatures (down to -40°C and up to +80°C) and under mechanical stress and during movement. This makes the cable ideal for demanding applications such as controlling moving equipment in freezer storage areas. UV-resistance enables also outdoor applications. The Hradil CAN bus cable achieves ICE 60332-1 fire performance using PIN flame retardants and a non-halogenated TPE-U outer sheath.
