Rockwell Automation Ethernet media is specifically designed for use in harsh industrial environments, combining a specially designed cable with rugged connector construction to ensure reliability and flexibility. Ethernet media is unshielded with conductors in a twisted pair (UTP) construction to preserve signal balance through the cable to provide noise immunity. These unshielded pressure extruded cables maintain maximum balance during flexing. In addition to giving the cable more flexibility, installation is simplified by not having to ground any shielding

Cables have been designed by Rockwell Automation for harsh environments and durable quality based on ODVA, MICE, EIA/TIA-568, ISO/IEC standards. The MICE standard measures product robustness by mechanical properties, which include shock, vibration, crush, and impact; ingress properties, which include liquid particles; climatic chemicals, which include temperature and humidity; and EMI, which includes radiated and conducted magnetic fields.
