Bus Cables


CAN Bus are field bus cables that comform to international CAN standard ISO-11898, CAN Bus (Control Area Network) is a non addressable system which treats all devices as equal allowing fast transmission of data. Due to its robust nature it has been widely adopted in the automotive industry. Several versions of CAN Bus cables have been developed to meet the fast changing needs of the automation industry. The PVC jacket version is designed for stationary applications,while the Halogen free PUR version is for highly flexing application
