Torsion-Resistant Chainflex Robot Cable

These twistable hybrid, bus, motor and fiber-optic cables have been added to its torsion resistant Chainflex robot cable range. 
The line includes five cables with a PUR outer jacket. CF-Robot 9 is a hybrid control cable that is available shielded or unshielded. CF-Robot 8 is a shielded bus cable, while CF-Robot 4 is a shielded position-feedback cable. CF-Robot 6 and CF-Robot 7 are servo-motor cables that are available shielded or unshielded. All five are oil-resistant and flame-retardant.
CF-Robot 5 is a fiber-optic cable with a TPE outer jacket. It is oil- and UV-resistant and flexible at low temperatures with a minimum bend radius of 12.5 times its diameter. CF-Robot is the original single-core, shielded cable of the range, which is PVC free- and oil- and UV-resistant. 
Standard Chainflex continuous-flex cables for cable carriers are designed for linear applications and have been tested over millions of cycles in test laboratories.
CF-Robot is suitable for multi-axis cable carriers, such as igus’ Triflex R cable carrier, which is designed to protect moving cables and hoses on six-axis robots. Triflex R is able to move through all axes and can twist up to 380 degrees-per-yard, enabling easy movement through complex configurations.
