KB014 What must be considered with the connecting cables?

When selecting the sensor connection cable, the following points should be considered:

  1. Cable cross-section according to max. sensor current
  2. Consider wire resistance for long cables (Attention voltage drop through cable)
  3. Consider cable requirements according to specifications e.g. Shielded twisted pair cable for RS-422 / RS-422 or SSI interfaces. Specifications according to Technical Reference Manual (see Downloads).
