Bus Cables

Bus Cables




DeviceNet™ communication link is based on proven CAN technology.DeviceNet™ is a bus system developed by

Allen Bradley (Rockwell Automation). These cables are used to interconnect various industrial devices, such as

SPS controls or limit switches. The special characteristic of this bus system is that a data pair and a power

supply pair are integrated in one cable. These cables with PVC jacket are designed for fixed installation.
