Igus has launched a three-wire shielded bus cable for the CC-Link industrial serial fieldbus system, which is targeted for the highly dynamic conditions found in energy-chain applications.

The data-transmission properties of the Chainflex CFBUS.035 cable correspond to the CC-Link specification and have been tested and approved by the global coordinating office – CC-Links Partners Association (CLPA) in Japan.

This means that Igus can supply dynamically flexible bus cables for all standard fieldbus systems, including Profibus, Interbus, CAN-bus, Device Net, Profinet and Ethernet, ex stock.

The combination of the abrasion-proof thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) outer jacket, a gusset-filled extruded inner jacket and an optimised short pitch length ensure millions of bending cycles are possible in energy-chain systems from 85mm bend radius (10xd).

With an outer diameter of 8.5mm and conforming to Desina cable colour coding, the cable is available as basic cable or pre-fitted with any standard industrial connector required.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
