TPE data cables for up to 40 million double strokes inside e-chains®


Tested in the chainflex® laboratory: high-end data cables for small radii and 40 million double strokes.

The high-end data cables with TPE jacket are available from now on as unshielded (CF298) and shielded (CF299) versions with double the service life (up to 40 million guaranteed double strokes).

Dynamic applications with very small bend radii can quickly allow the copper cores of conventional cables to meet their mechanical stress limits. It is precisely for such scenarios that igus now guarantees 40 million double strokes on its CF298 (unshielded) and CF299 (shielded) data cable series with the smallest bending factor (4xd) for moving data cables in e-chains. This is made possible mainly by the combination of the new high-performance alloy conductor material and the highly flexible igus TPE outer jacket, which prevents cracks and breaks.

For extremely heavy duty and tough environments
 
This new generation of igus data cables is ideal for short, very quick movements, for example, in pick-and-place machines, automatic doors or other very fast handling applications. Due to the doubling of the service life guarantee to 40 million double strokes, these cables offer the user absolute planning safety and dependability, which can be of decisive importance especially for high-end applications.
 
Since the cables are certified according to ISO Class 1, they can also be used in the cleanroom, which in combination with the extreme service life represents an absolute competitive advantage. They are also suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications due to their resistance to UV, low temperature and oil.


Highlight test

tested ... proven ... guaranteed!

Extensive tests lead to a service life guarantee of 40 million double strokes

Providing a guarantee to the end customer exceeds obligatory warranty claims or defect liability by far. chainflex customers thus not only receive the promise to purchase a defect-free product, but also reliable functionality over a certain period. Durability guarantee is what matters.   
 
In current tests with the latest generation of chainflex data cables in the chainflex test laboratory a service life of over 54 million double strokes has been achieved:

Cleanroom solutions from igus

Absolute air purity is essential in many industries, especially in production, in the medical and pharmaceutical technology, aerospace technology, nano technology and measurement technology. Any contamination in cleanroom conditions has a direct damaging impact on products and processes and costs a lot of money. In the case of cleanrooms, the requirements regarding the abrasion-resistance of moving components are especially high.
