The only MTW cables for e-chain® AND cable rack

The introduction of the new cable series CF150.UL and CF160.UL now offer the possibility to install the cable directly after the energy chain on the cable rack, because the cables are UL listed. This can eliminate the plug-in points behind the e-chain and the storage of different cable types for the energy chain and fixed installation sections. Both cable types can be found in the control cable area and extend the part of the PVC cables. They are clearly different from other MTW cables, because with this portfolio expansion we also fully rely on a service life guarantee and tests in our chainflex test laboratory.
