Hybrid cables suitable for SEW

With the new hybrid cables CF280.UL.H207.D, we are expanding our portfolio to include SEW's Movilink DDI technology. A combination of energy transmission and data transmission. System data is transmitted in this cable by a heavy duty coaxial element. It can be used for applications with a bending factor of up to 15xd and is therefore suitable for use in a wide range of industries, from machine tools and material handling up to the automotive industry. The cable can be purchased harnessed or by the metre and can be used on the matching SEW motors without any problems. With 28 different types of hybrid cables, igus has the largest portfolio of hybrid cables in energy chains from stock. With this expansion, we are following the ongoing trend of hybrid technology and the combination of energy cores and data networks in one cable.  Here, too, you can count on our usual advantages: up to 4 year guarantee, no minimum order quantity and no cutting charge as well as numerous approvals & standards which also characterise this innovation.

Hybrid cable successfully in use

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.

Energy chains overview

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.
