NFPA 79-conforming cables for energy chains

NFPA 79-conforming cables for energy chains
For those who want to export machines and plant to the USA, there is often no way around the requirement for the new NFPA 79 approval. This standard, which originated in the construction field, prohibits the use of some AWM cables (UL Recognized) in machines. Due to the very high fire-resistance requirement, NFPA 79 restricts the selection of cable materials used to PVC only.

For this reason, energy chain specialist Igus has supplemented its range of 850 energy chain rated cable types with NFPA 79-conforming machine cables. The "Chainflex CF130.US" and "CF140.US" machine tool wire (MTW) are highly flame-resistant and meet the strict US standards in terms of materials and insulation wall thicknesses. The outer material is oil-resistant in line with the regulations and provides extremely high fire-resistance according to FT4. 

Areas of application are both indoors and outdoors, short to medium travel distances, self-supporting energy chain use up to 10m and cope with medium mechanical loads, such as in the areas of tool machining, packaging, wood and stone processing as well as general handling tasks. These PVC control cables are available immediately without any cutting costs or minimum quantity surcharge.
