ÖLFLEX® from LAPP is used in machinery, machine tools, system and appliance engineering, measuring, control, heating and air conditioning technologies. It can be used in harsh conditions in servo applications, power chain applications, special applications, or conveyor technology. It withstands expanded ambient temperatures. LAPP has also developed the online configurator ÖLFLEX CONNECT CHAIN: it will take only few clicks to engineer a power chain online. The configurator automatically switches off all error sources and finds the best solution.
Online configurator for the choice of cable chain
ÖLFLEX CONNECT CHAIN acts as a step-by-step guide through the choice of cable chain, cables and relevant accessories. It makes sure that components are compatible every step of the way, especially when it comes to the cables’ minimum bend radius. The cable chain must not have a smaller bend radius than the cable. If this is the case, the configurator will display a warning message and suggest other types of cable chain. Other criteria include the travel length, acceleration, temperature behaviour and shielding. The configurator automatically excludes cables that are not suitable for the application. If required, it can position separators and shelves and makes sure that the weight of the cables is evenly distributed in the power chain.
