The e-spool flex 2.0 is the igus version of a cable drum without a slip ring. Cable diameters from 5mm up to 15mm can be used. The cable is always safely routed through a feed-through to ensure that it is properly wound up at all times.
Note: Please consider VDE 0298 Part 5 (Current carrying capacity and conversion factors for wound cables) when selecting your cables and when using e-spool flex
Version SP: with retaining spring and locking function
Cable diameter: from 5 to 15mm
Extension length: ≤15m
Version SB: with retaining spring, locking function, and retraction brake.
Cable diameter: from 5 to 15mm | Extension length: ≤15m
The mini version of the proven e-spool flex 2.0 enables its user to conduct energy without interruption (that is, without a slip ring) or with data, air, or media (optional). Its modular system allows flexible adaptation to the application in question. Simply unwind: this principle can now also be applied to short cable lengths and very limited spaces. Twice the extension length of the competitor product, as verified by tests in the igus laboratory.
|Part No.||Version||Max. cable ø||Extension length|
|SPF.120.07.01.SP||With spring and ratchet||5 - 7mm||≤ 3m||Request now|
|SPF.120.07.01.SPL||With spring and ratchet lever||5 - 7mm||< 3m||Request now|
Now with guide roller and brush attachment (optional)
Brush attachment for cleaning the cable before rolling it up.
Idler pulley for "around the corner" extension.
With a newly developed cable reel for control panels, robot users avoid
"cable tangle" and tripping hazards in automated production. Since the new solution does not use slip rings, media, data and the power and signal supply of the emergency stop button can also be integrated into the system. Download the white paper to find out more.
Cables or hoses are inserted into the e-spool in a spiral pattern

The e-spool flex 2.0 can be used wherever a cable must be moved freely during use and must be stowed away safely and cleanly after use
In its test laboratory, the largest in the industry, igus compared the e-spool flex with a competing product. The test evaluated the two products' pull-out forces.
The results showed that the e-spool pull-out forces were about ten newtons, while those of the competing product were almost twice that.
A: e-spool flex
B: Competing product
C: Pull-out force [N]D: Pull-out [m]
In its test laboratory, the largest in the industry, igus compared the e-spool flex mini with a competing product. The test evaluated the two products' extension lengths.
The results showed that the e-spool flex mini extension length was about three metres, while that of the competing product was only half that.
The illustrated assembly aid enables you to assemble the e-spool flex 2.0 quickly and professionally.
