igus, the leading expert in dynamic cables for energy chains, now offers technical data sheets for over 1,100 of its chainflex cables. The data sheets, which are found for each chainflex cable available online at www.igus.co.uk/chainflex, provide engineers with detailed information, including cable cross-section drawings, electrical data and typical mechanical tests carried out in energy chains.
“The cable cross-section drawings provide designers with a unique opportunity to see the layup of the individual cores within the overall cable structure, for example to assign connector pin-outs, explains igus director, Justin Leonard. “The technical data sheets also show details of the materials used in the cable construction including important ratings (e.g. UL, CSA, flame retardancy, NEK606 offshore rating) making choosing the right cable for any moving application even easier.”
