Issue

What specification should the Continuum Infinet bus cable meet?

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

Systems using Infinet comm's  with i2 & i1 Infinet controllers.

Cause

Often an incorrect cable type is used when wiring Infinet devices (Infinet Controllers), unless the correct cable specification is used it is unlikely you will get reliable communications.

Resolution

Infinet Cable Specifications :
Cables used to form the Infinet should conform to the following specifications:
Wire Size: 24 AWG
Cable Type: Twisted-pair, copper wire, tinned
Shield: Braid
Nominal Impedance: 120 Ω
Velocity of propagation: 78%
Capacitance: <12.5 pF/ft between conductors and < 22 pF/ft between the conductor connected to ground and the next conductor.
