Recommended EtherCAT Communications Cables

Use Straight STP (shielded twisted-pair) cable of category 5 or higher with double shielding (braiding and aluminum foil tape) for EtherCAT.
For EtherCAT, use a shielded twisted-pair cable (double shielding with aluminum tape and braiding) of Ethernet category 5 (100BASETX) or higher, and use straight wiring.
For Ethernet, required specification for the communications cables varies depending on the baud rate.
For 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T, use an STP (shielded twisted-pair) cable of Ethernet category 5 or higher. You can use either a straight or cross cable.
For 1000BASE-T, use an STP (double shielding with aluminum tape and braiding) cable of Ethernet category 5e or higher. You can use either a straight or cross cable.
In the table, materials indicated available for Ethernet 100BASE-TX are available for both of 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T.
