The cables were not optimised for small bend radii but are thinner and can therefore be used in smaller radii. And yet tested as always in the chainflex laboratory and with 36-month guarantee.
This reduction in installation space was achieved by changing from PVC core insulation to TPE core insulation. This design feature not only saves the installation space in the chain, but also reduces the radius of the e-chain with the same bending factor. This new generation of chainflex control cables is therefore particularly suitable for applications such as in wood/stone processing or in machine tool construction.
Electrotechnically equivalent energy chain cables with core cross section of 4x1.5mm²
Please feel free to read all details and specifications of the latest generation of chainflex M cables here. In our product data sheets you will not only find all the facts once again, but also sectional views and core markings for each individual cable.
We issue a 36-month guarantee on our cables with confidence, as we are able to make reliable predictions about the service life of our cables due to over 30 years of experience and 700 concurrently undertaken experiments in our 3,800 m² test laboratory.
Offering around 4,600 harnessed motor, servo, signal and encoder cables in accordance with 24 manufacturer standards, igus is the world's No. 1 when it comes to harnessed cables for use in energy chains. With 7 cable qualities, we always offer the most cost-effective drive cable that works.
