Energy chain and cabling expert, igus, has developed a robust and reliable, as well as cost-conscious, single-cable solution for servo motors. With an integrated bus element, the chainflex CF270.UL.D hybrid servo cable is ideally placed to meet the increasing demand for single hybrid cable technology in the drive manufacturing industry.
Whereas in the past, servo motors and converters were generally connected with two cables – one servo cable for the motor’s energy supply and an encoder cable for data feedback – more and more drive manufacturers are now offering servo motors with single-cable technology. This means that energy supply as well as data feedback are operated by a single cable, with complex measuring system cables being replaced by bus technology.
Specifically designed by igus for use in energy chains, the hybrid servo cable is guaranteed for millions of cycles at a bend radius of just 10x cable diameter. UL, CSA and NFPA79.2012 certified, this innovative cable is oil resistant, flame-retardant and halogen-free. In addition, thanks to its Desina conforming orange outer jacket, it is able to endure excessive load conditions, meeting the stringent requirements of machining centres and machine tools. Its unique properties also make it ideal for conveyor technology, as well as in low temperature applications.
