In order to supply modern motors with energy and data, users need appropriate cables that function dependably even at high accelerations and on long travels. Especially for use in motion, igus has now developed a hybrid cable that is offered as a drive solution for the new Bosch Rexroth motors. It combines energy and data cable in one and is therefore also suitable for compact installation spaces. igus offers the cable as a fully harnessed readycable that is accurate to the centimetre. This saves the user costs.
The motion plastics specialist igus operates the largest test laboratory in the industry on more than 3,800 square metres. 10 billion cycles are covered every year for energy chains and cables alone. Now igus has commissioned a new automated test facility for long distances in outdoor premises in Cologne Porz-Lind.
“RoHS” stands for “Restriction of Hazardous Substances” and regulates the use of hazardous substances in electronic devices. This EU directive aims to avoid harmful components such as lead, mercury or plasticisers in products and work environments. All of igus’ 1,354 highly flexible chainflex cables comply with the requirements of the current RoHS II directive. This ensures legal and functional safety for machine builders and safe use and disposal for the user.
