New chainflex CAN bus cable for highly dynamic applications

igus is introducing a new CAN bus cable for highly dynamic energy chain applications, such as in machine tools and production equipment. The chainflex CFBUS cable is available with either a highly abrasion-resistant PVC (CFBUS.PVC.020) or oil-resistant PUR (CFBUS.PUR.020) outer jacket. Both cable options have EAC and CTP approvals, simplifying trade with the Russian market.

The EAC certificate is the official proof that the imported machines or components for production equipment comply with the harmonised technical regulations (TR ZU) of the participating countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). The CTP standard focuses on the fire behaviour of cables and the flame retardancy of the materials used. The two approvals are intended to simplify business relations.

Thanks to the EAC and CTP approval schemes, companies exporting to Russia or EAEU member states can get their machines and equipment through customs more quickly and start commissioning at the end-customer immediately after delivery. By using certified chainflex cables, companies can save time and money at customs. An additional advantage of both certifications is that new and used machinery and equipment can be moved and sold across the borders within all member states of the Customs Union. Further national certificates of conformity, through GOST-R, TR or GOST-K, are no longer required with EAC and CTP approvals.

As with all igus chainflex cables, the new CAN bus cables have also been tested in the in-house test laboratory, which is spread over 2,750 square metres. This makes igus the only manufacturer on the market to offer a 36-month guarantee on its entire cable range.
