Treotham offers a new ready-to-connect highly flexible
chainflex hybrid cable suitable for SEW and Siemens motors for use in energy chains.
Users looking for a flexible drive cable can choose
this cost-effective technical solution from Treotham. For SEW and Siemens
motors, igus has now developed the CF280.UL.H, a new hybrid cable specifically
for use in the energy chain. Users of intralogistics, machine tool construction
or the automotive industry can now rely on a solution with a 36-month guarantee.
The cable can either be supplied by length or as a ready-to-connect readycable.
In order to drive motors, many engineers increasingly
come face-to-face with hybrid cables. In these drive solutions, the energy
supply and other functions run on a single cable. For example, motor
manufacturer Siemens can replace the encoder cable with a BUS element and add
this to the energy cores, eliminating the need for cabling with a separate
measuring system cable for the encoder.
Treotham has now expanded its low-cost igus hybrid
cable series with the CF280.UL.H, which is suitable for SEW and Siemens motors.
The new highly flexible cable is specifically designed for use in the energy
chain. It is suitable for applications up to a bend radius of 10 x d across all
industrial sectors from the machine tool and automotive industry up to
intralogistics. Even temperatures from -25 degrees up to +80 degrees Celsius
pose no problem for the cable. Depending on the manufacturer’s specification,
the new hybrid cable has a black or orange oil-resistant PUR outer jacket, and 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
2,750 square metres. In a series of tests at 7.5 x d, hybrid cables survived
over 8 million cycles without damage. Another advantage of the new cable series
is that it has the American UL approval, as well as the EAC and CTP certificate
for the Russian market.
In response to customer requests, igus harnesses all
its cables with the appropriate connector in-house. With more than 4,200 drive
cables available made in line with 24 manufacturer standards, the customer
always finds 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 has acquired the unique position as
the only manufacturer on the market to offer a 36-month guarantee on its entire
range of cables. The igus chainflex cables are available harnessed from
