machines. With the new cable series, machine builders will be able to not only
save up to 30 percent on costs, but also receive UL approved cables that are guaranteed
Data cables are used in a wide variety of sectors, from
machine tools to robots. The cables must always withstand forces when used in
energy chains. igus’ new and cost-effective data cables have been specifically developed
for applications without high mechanical requirements, such as adjustment
devices, encoder units, and wood or stone processing machines. By selecting chainflex
CF8821 data cables, machine builders can achieve up to 30 percent cost savings when
compared to standard chainflex data cables. Offered with small cross-sections,
the new cable is suitable for use in e-chains with a bend radius of 12.5 x d.
Shielding protects them from interference. The highly flexible PVC outer jacket
is silicone-free and flame-retardant.
Similar to all igus cables from Treotham, the new data

only manufacturer on the market to offer a 36-month guarantee on its entire
cable range. For the new data cable, Treotham promises a service life of up to
5 million cycles. In addition to the guarantee, UL approval of the CF8821

safety thanks to chainflex cables with UL approvals
With more than 1,300 types, Treotham offers the widest
range of energy chain cables with the world’s most extensive selection with
international approvals, including cables with the UL certification. One of the
biggest challenges for international plant manufacturers is the different
technical standards and norms on the OEM and operator side in North America.
Organisations in Europe and America have been trying to harmonise their
regulations for years. The motion plastics specialist igus makes an important
contribution towards the harmonisation with 1,044 out of the total 1,354 cables
in its portfolio having UL-certification. Thanks to UL approval, small to
medium-sized companies as well as large OEMs can export their machines to America
more easily and commission them without any problems.
