FastConnect – the cabling system for Industrial Ethernet, PROFINET, and PROFIBUS networks
Cabling industrial plants is demanding. Time and again, problems arise when stripping cables, assembling the plug-in connector, or connecting cores. With FastConnect, that’s all in the past. Our FastConnect quick assembly system makes configuring bus systems and networks quick, easy, and error-free, thanks to optimally coordinated components. FastConnect consists of industrial-suited cables, connectors, as well as tools, and can be used for Industrial Ethernet, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, as well as for PROFIBUS.
Safe transmissions of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and more in industrial applications via robust FO cables
Due to the growing volume of data, especially in industrial applications, the demand for robust FO data cables is constantly increasing. A robust cable structure with high-quality OM4 fibers is required for secure data transmission, which allows Ethernet data rates of up to 25 Gbit/s. A flexible and halogen-free OM4 cable variant from the SIMATIC NET cable portfolio makes it possible to set up a future-proof FO data network with LC connection technology, even in industrial applications.
The right cabling system for each networkRely on FastConnect when cabling your Industrial Ethernet, PROFINET, or PROFIBUS network. The sophisticated, quick assembly system is designed precisely to meet industrial requirements for cable technology and thus reliably prevents installation errors. You benefit from simple on-site assembly, while ensuring operating availability.
