What is ETHERLINE® GUARD?
ETHERLINE® GUARD is a stationary monitoring device that continuously monitors an Ethernet cable, detects a decline in performance and displays it with an easy-to-understand parameter - the cable status. Maintenance measures can be planned in advance based on the cable status as a value between 100% and 0%. The device supports copper-based Ethernet data cables compliant with 100BASE-TX according to IEEE 802.3 (at 100 Mbit/s) and is suitable, for example, for EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP and PROFINET applications.
What is the purpose of ETHERLINE® GUARD?
The device is particularly useful for data cables that are exposed to constant mechanical “stress”. This includes movement at high speed and acceleration, changing motion sequences, rotations with very high axial angles of rotation, short cycle times and small bending radii. The device is also used in critical processes, where a downtime would result in high downtime costs or even personal injury.
