Chainflex® "class"(ification)

To make the choice easier for you, we have classified all Chainflex®-cables after the criteria "requirements, oil-resistance and travel distance". The higher the number is, the higher quality of the cable; vice versa, the lower the number is, the lower is the cable price.
 
Example:You are looking for a cable which resists highest mechanical requirements. In addition, the cable is also designed to meet the oil-resistance requirements according to DIN EN 60811-2-1, DIN EN 50363-10-2. In unsupported and gliding applications, the cable is designed for a travel of up to 100 m.
 
The classification overview is used to select between:
 
Requirements: 6 Travel distance: 5 Resistance to oil: 3
This results in the rating of the cable – "Class 6.5.3" in this case – which you can also find in the respective product pages.
