Cables deliver high performance in specialist applications

Cables deliver high performance in specialist applications Recognising distinct cabling requirements in a variety of industry sectors was the inspiration behind igus' new chainflex CF Special cable range. Newly developed flexible cables have been produced specifically for the rail, lift and food industries.

The new additions to the chainflex family are the CF Special.544, an anti-microbial cable for applications that require stringent levels of hygiene, such as the food and bottling industries. The cable's unique anti-microbial properties are contained throughout the composition of the jacket material, rather than just a coating, and limit the spread of micro-organisms.

Next is the halogen free cable CF Special.414, for dynamic moving applications in rail vehicles. This cable has low smoke and toxicity properties, is fire retardant, has a low toxic density, is safe and is designed in accordance with government fire regulations. The TPE core is extremely high quality and offers up to two million cycles in an igus energy chain.

For extremely high tensile loads, Ethernet cable CF182.045 and Profibus cable CF182.001 are suitable for hanging applications of up to 50 metres, such as those found in rack operating devices, hanging control units and elevators. Both cables feature a low-adhesive, highly abrasion-resistant PUR jacket material with embedded aramid webbing. All cables are rigorously tested for effectiveness and life span, and are accredited with the relevant industry standards.
