Igus has expanded and improved its Chainflex CF211 and CF111.D series of measuring cables for dynamic equipment applications. The cables feature an enhanced core and shield structure that offers a longer service life and makes them easier to install, reducing assembly times by as much as 30 per cent.

Chainflex CF211 and CF111.D series

Igus is offering the CF211.028, the CF111.028.D and the CF113.028.D, designed specifically for use in analogue and digital measuring systems, including the Drive-Cliq (a registered trademark of Siemens). Each measuring cable represents a different level of mechanical properties.

Igus’s chainflex cables conform to, and are in accordance with, various cable industry standards. Like all other Chainflex cables, the CF111, CF111.D and CF113.D data cables are available ex-stock within 24 hours or the same day, without cutting costs or minimum-order quantity.

Products in detail

CF211

  • The CF211 has a PVC outer jacket, which allows a range of operating temperatures from -5ºC to +70ºC.
  • It is suitable for applications in warehouse storage and handling systems, processing tools and packaging machines.
  • The CF211 series comes in a variety of sizes and follows the DESINA colour coding. 

CF111.D

  • The CF111.D features a halogen-free, flame-resistant PUR outer jacket.
  • This cable is specially designed for short-travel applications.
  • The CF111.D series comes in a variety of sizes and follows the DESINA colour coding. 

CF113.D

  • The high-end CF113.D features a PUR inner jacket and a bend-resistant braiding of tinned copper wires with an optical coverage of 90 per cent.
  • This cable structure is said to be ideal for use in fast, handling, clean-room and low-temperature applications down to -20ºC.

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.
