Online technical data sheets now available for over 1,100 chainflex cables

Online technical data sheets now available for over 1,100 chainflex cables igus, the leading expert in dynamic cabling for energy chains, now offers technical data sheets for over 1,100 chainflex cables. The data sheets, which are available online at: www.igus.co.uk/chainflex, provide cable specifiers with detailed information, including cable cross-section drawings.

"The cross-section cable drawings provide designers with a unique opportunity to gain a detailed view of the position of the individual cores within the overall stranded structure, and optimally assign connectors' PIN configurations, explains igus director, Justin Leonard. "The overview provides a precise description of the various jacket materials used for igus cables with their full resistance information, which makes choosing the right cable even easier."

The detailed usage parameters such as, the ambient conditions, and travel or bending radius, help design the system as a whole and therefore, extend the service life of the individual systems and machines.
 
The lifespan of igus' cables are guaranteed for millions of cycles but typically last much longer. This is established by the rigorous tests that all igus products go through. The tests consist of millions of cycles in real life applications, as well as tests within the igus laboratory.   

"These tests reassure engineers, machine builders and OEMs that igus cables will improve the performance and reliability of their equipment," adds Leonard. "This is backed-up by the large number of customers that report that igus cables 'just don't wear out!'"
