MOTION CONTROL: igus®, has developed a line of continuous-flex, interconnect motor cables harnessed in accordance with leading manufacturers, including Siemens, Indramat, Fanuc and Allen Bradley. As with all Chainflex® cables, these interconnects are ideal for continuous-flexing applications in an Energy Chain® cable carrier.The cables are available for drive, control, motor and robotic functions and come equipped with different cable connectors, including those with flying leads, adapter plugs and extensions.
igus’ entire line of Chainflex cables can handle tight bending radii in dynamic applications and are tested over millions of cycles in all types of conditions to ensure optimal performance.
