igus presents a new cable that gives a warning before a failure to increase process safety and reliability. Within automation in industry, the number and speed of machine movements are increasing while the degree of networking in the factory is also increasing.

Ethernet cables and robot cables

Thanks to the world's largest range of Ethernet cables for e-chains even the most complex applications can be networked reliably in the smart factory. The next step is the intelligent robot cable that warns users before a cable failure occurs. Standard Ethernet cables are mostly used where the cable is fixed in place. However, they only have a very limited service life when used in dynamic applications.

Range and applications

The largest range of Ethernet cables developed by igus for energy chains includes 27 types of copper cable and FOC as well as 422 pre-assembled Ethernet cables, all of which have optimum transmission qualities in moving applications. With this product range, igus covers the increasing variety of applications in the area of Industry 4.0, from simple linear movement in dusty woodworking machines to complex 3D movements when connected to cleanroom robots, and from the smallest bending radii to longest travel distances. Cables optimised for movement also require optimised supply solutions for movement. And they must be tailored to the specific requirements in each case.
