Camera cables used for industrial applications often need to withstand elevated thermal and mechanical loads. As a rule the temperature range for standard cables with PVC in image processing applications lies between -10?°C and +60?C°, in the case of PUR cables, temperatures between -30?°C and +80?C° are possible. Cameras can be operated at high on-site temperatures, for example, the inspection and monitoring of furnaces in the steel and glass industry using a customised integrated camera protection housing by STEMMER IMAGING. Conventional cables without further protective measures are, however, often inadequate for thermal reasons.
Based on a new cable material, STEMMER IMAGING is now able to manufacture high quality CAT6 cables for extreme applications which cover the temperature range from -40 °C to +180 °C and can even resist up to +250 °C for short periods. The material is designed as a permanently flexible cable with a minimum flex radius of >140 mm and can be supplied in customised cable lengths together with robust, field-assembly RJ-45 plugs. The experts of the Puchheim-based company would be pleased to discuss your precise requirements for a customised cable solution.
STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
