TriVibe Field Cable Options

We highly recommend using one of the cables that have been vetted by Machine Saver's Engineering Team, if you use a cable that is not specified on our list and have communication issues we may be unable to help you resolve them.

If you still wish to select another cable manufacturer, it is critical to get the following specifications correct:

Power pair of conductors: 18 AWG, twisted pair

Digital Modbus pair of conductors: 22 AWG, twisted pair

The cable capacitance should be low 12pF / foot

The cable impedance should be as close to 120 ohms as possible

There should be a foil shield 100% with a drain wire (overall or surrounding the digital Modbus pair)
