What should I pay attention to with hybrid cables for e-chain?

When combining the servo and encoder cables into one hybrid cable , it is important to ensure the necessary data transfer specifications and interference-free operation of the cable for many millions of cycles. A secure transmission of the bus signals to maximum cable length with many motion cycles in the energy chain, poses special requirements for the structure of the bus cores.

tested ... proven ... guaranteed!

The application at IMA Klessmann shows that the hybrid cables from igus work well, shorten installation time and save costs. Up to fifty servo axes in a confined space, high dynamics, high expectations in terms of service life and small bend radii are the demands that hybrid cables must meet in a new drilling machine.

e-chain® news

Energy chains are there to guide and protect energy, data and signals At the same time, they have to withstand a wide variety of environmental influences. The decisive factor here is the symbiosis of the components moving against each other.
