e-skin® flat single pods - connectable single profiles

The e-skin flat single pods consist of individually connectable cable chambers. One or more cables can be inserted into these chambers. Here at least 2 chambers must be connected with each other.  There are closed versions and openable versions. With the openable version, the chambers can be opened and closed with a zipper closure.  One chamber is closed or opened at a time and extended with further chambers until the required width is reached. For the closed single profile SKF12C, a support chain SKF. S.080.070.0 is available, which equips the e-skin flat with an unsupported length and the defined radius of 70mm.  This support chain must only be used in connection with this single profile.

Cost down

Cost down

  • Quick filling thanks to opening possibility
  • Individual cables can be changed quickly without replacing the entire energy supply
  • Can be shortened or widened
  • Flexible standard modular system for many cleanroom applications
  • No minimum order quantity
  • 36-month guarantee

Proof

Proof

  • e-skin flat SKF triple-pod already tested in the Fraunhofer IPA test centre for semiconductor devices based on ISO class 14644-1 and received the certification ISO class 1*
  • e-skin flat tested in the igus laboratory with a volume of only 29dB(A) 
  • Install and remove cables in a few minutes, no long delivery time for completely new systems
  • Suitable for many industries and applications: Cleanroom applications with compact installation spaces, short travels

Sustainability

Sustainability

  • With systems that have been commercially available to date, if one cable fails, the entire system must be replaced and disposed of. e-skin is modular and retrofittable - up to 100% less waste
  • Cables are not made of composite materials that can no longer be separated. e-skin flat is made of only one in recyclable material
  • Have your energy chain processed as part of the igus chainge recycling program no matter which manufacturer they came from
  • igus supports the circular economy of plastics and invests in chemical recycling

*Report IG 1907-1125: SKF12.3.02.0101 and SKF12.3.03.0101 tested with v = 0.5m/s and a = 1m/s² and v = 1m/s and a = 2m/s² and v = 2m/s and a = 4m/s²

Test report: Noise level measurement

This test shows how quiet the igus 'e-skin flat' cable for cleanrooms is. Compared to flat ribbon cables from competitors, the e-skin flat has a noise level of only 29dB(A) - tested in the igus laboratory, Cologne with 1.5m/s unsupported, on standard support for sound measurement (dampened plate, without guide). 1m distance to the measuring device.
 

A

e-skin flat with 29dB(A)

B

Competitor 1 with 33dB(A)

C

Competitor 2 with 40dB(A)
