In hybrid cables, the energy supply and other functions run through a single cable. In this way, for example, the motor manufacturer Siemens replaces the encoder cable with a bus element and adds this to the energy cores. This eliminates the need for cabling with a separate measuring system cable for the encoder.
Treotham Automation has now expanded its low-cost igus hybrid cable series with the CF280.UL.H, which is suitable for SEW and Siemens motors. This highly flexible cable is specifically designed for use in e-chains. It is suitable for applications up to a bend radius of 10 x d across all industrial. Even temperatures of -25 and +80°C pose no problem.
Depending on the manufacturer’s specification, it has a black or orange oil-resistant polyurethane outer jacket, is coolant-resistant and flame-retardant. A braided shield with high coverage ensures good EMC protection of the cable over a long service life. igus regularly carries out continuous tests on all cable ranges in the world’s largest laboratory spread across a floor area of 2750m2. In a series of tests at 7.5 x d, hybrid cables survived over 8 million cycles without damage. It has American UL approval, as well as EAC and CTP certification for the Russian market.
Due to customer requests, igus harnesses all its cables with the appropriate connector in-house. With more than 4200 drive cables available made in line with 24 manufacturers’ standards, customers will always find the most cost-effective cable for their application. All cables are tested after harnessing and receive a seal. By testing all chainflex cables during motion under real conditions, igus is the only manufacturer to offer a 36-month guarantee on its entire range of cables.
