igus is expanding and improving its chainflex CF211 and CF111.D series of measuring cables developed for dynamic equipment applications. The cables feature an enhanced core and shield structure that offers a much longer service life and makes them easier to install, reducing assembly times by as much as 30 per cent.
Specifically for use in analogue and digital measuring systems, such as DRIVE-CLiQ*, igus offers the CF211.028, CF111.028.D and CF113.028.D - each representing a different level of mechanical properties.
CF211 has a PVC outer jacket, which allows a range of operating temperatures from -5 to +70 degC; it is suited to applications in warehouse storage and handling systems, processing tools and packaging machines. CF111.D features a halogen-free, flame-resistant PUR outer jacket; this cable is specially designed for short travel applications. At the high end, CF113.D boasts 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 suitable for use in fast, handling, clean room and low-temperature applications down to -20degC.
The CF211 and CF111.D series comes in a variety of sizes and follow the DESINA colour coding. igus’ chainflex cables also conform to, and are in accordance with, various cable industry standards. Like all other igus 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.
