Installation guide for twisterband

TPE outer jacket

Dimensioning: Cable selection

When selecting cables, pay particular attention to good abrasion and gliding properties. An ideal jacket material is TPE.
Recommendation: chainflex® cable CF9

Special shielded cables for the use in twisterband are in preparation. Please contact us if the use of shielded cables is essential


Dimensioning: Filling

twisterband-Version with lock:
TB20-44-18-x-01-0 | TB30-75-22-x-01-0

A = separate cables with crossbars
 
B = Insert cables sorted according to diameter or bending radius. Insert thin, small ones inward – then increasingly bigger ones outward.
 

 

C = Not more than two cables on top of each other. 10% of the larger diameter or a minimum of 1 mm between all cables
 

 

 
D = 10% of the larger diameter or a
minimum of 1 mm between all cables
 

E = 10% of the larger diameter or a
minimum of 1 mm between all cables and separators

twisterband version with easy locking:
TB12-23-09-x-01-0 | TB20-44-12-x-01-0


A = insert cables sorted according to diameter or bending radius. Insert thin, small ones inward – then increasingly bigger ones outward.
 

 

 
B = A minimum of 1 mm or 10% of the larger diameter => Ø B between all cables
 

 

 

 

C = Not more than 2 cables on top of each other. A minimum of 1 mm or
10% of the larger diameter between all cables


Assembly: Mounting brackets

1. Insert twisterband between the steel parts.
2. Secure the twisterband by screwing the mounting bracket in place.

Assembly: guide shaft

Insert a centric shaft as a guide for vertical installation orientations starting at 1500° rotation angles.
Generally, insert a centric shaft as support for horizontal installation orientations.

Assembly: Strain relief

- Strain relief the cables on both ends
- Ensure that the cable tie lock does not point in the direction of the energy chain

Final position:

The twisterband must not be twisted up to the end. To avoid excessive strain on the cables, a min. reserve of 90° must be planned in front of each mounting point.
