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.
Food production, a special challenge for the cabling technology
Food is now produced in a highly automated manner. The machines used in these areas must meet high hygiene standards. This also applies to cables for the transmission of data or energy. These must be able to withstand cleaning agents, high temperatures and high pressure when cleaning the systems. The portfolio of SIMATIC NET PROFINET offers data and power cable variants with EHEDG approval especially for these applications. The cables can thus be cleaned without any problems and the FastConnect design enables an easy preparation of the cable end for on-site assembly.
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.

High performance in all versionsWith FastConnect, you will always find just the right cabling technology for your requirements. The system offers a comprehensive portfolio of cables and connectors – including preassembled – for M12 and RJ45 connection systems in three categories: copper cables and connectors, fiber-optic cables, as well as power cables.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
