Igus launches an innovative cable that gives a warning before a failure to increases 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. 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.
