Technical note on bus cables
chainflex® bus cables are specially developed and tested for continuous use in e-chain® applications. Depending on
the outer jacket material and the design principle, the bus cables are designed for different mechanical requirements
and media resistance.
The electrical design is selected in such a way that the electrical properties of the respective bus specification are reliably fulfilled
, and the greatest importance is also placed on high EMC safety. A permanent stability of the
electrical values despite permanent movement is also ensured.
However, the entire transmission property in a complete bus communication system is not exclusively
dependent on the cable used. Rather, it requires an exact coordination of all components (electronic components,
connection technology and cable) as well as the consideration of the maximum transmission rates which are dependent on the respective systems
in relation to the required data transmission rates. Therefore, a cable is not solely responsible for the reliable transmission of
igus® advises you when you are designing your bus system to take all these factors into account and, with its extensive tests, helps you to
ensure the process reliability of your system from the very beginning.
