Hybrid Cables

Hybrid cables combine servo & motor
feedback cables for drive technology

Hybrid cables are quickly becoming the norm for use in servo drive systems, and for good reason. The fast, precise movements required in such systems benefit from having just a single cable relaying the necessary energy and signals. This single cable alternative saves on material and space, driving down costs and assembly/installation time. chainflex® hybrid cables are flame retardant and resist various common hazards such as oil and UV radiation, with some also resisting other hazards like coolant and microbes.

The chainflex® hybrid cable line covers a wide range of applications and is constantly being evaluated and evolving based on client’s needs. This is especially true as more customers are looking to make the shift to hybrid cables.
Like with all our other chainflex® cables, our hybrid cables come with a UL-verified up to 4 year guaranteed service life. We also offer cable price checks and comparisons to help reduce cost and improve service life. In addition, we offer rapid shipping times with no minimum length requirement.

Customer Application - Hybrid Cables in Woodworking

A major manufacturer of woodworking machines converted its drive technology to the new Beckhoff hybrid technology, capitalizing on the advantages of the more compact design. The challenge was with the cables, which in their machines have to perform a great many movements with very tight radii. This is where igus entered the race with a challenging service life test. It was challenging because the requirement was to also measure the Hiperface DSL bus data transmission over its use. That is why we worked very closely with our customer to achieve reliable results for both of us. Feel free to contact us when you need to test cable solution durability.
