What's special about these economical PVC control cables?

  • Durable multi-conductor control cable is designed to withstand the friction and stress associated with automated cable carrier systems, while providing a quality and affordable wiring solution for applications on a budget
  • High tensile, strain relief core helps to extend operation life and  prevent conductors from becoming overburdened or severed, due to the constant stresses that moving components on cables and wires
  • Multi-layered jacket provides a high degree of protection from abrasion, oil, UV, and electromagnetic interference commonly found in industrial and commercial environmentsRoHS Compliant

As robotics, milling, and CNC machinery become faster and more advanced, higher levels of stress and friction can result, and standard cabling becomes inadequate. As an answer to this problem, IGUS®, a world leader in Energy Chain Systems®, has developed a new line of power and data cables that can withstand the grueling rigors and friction caused by the constant movement of automated machinery and its components. The Chainflex® CF6 line of Shielded PVC Control Cables is designed to provide installers and machine operators with a reliable cabling solution for control mechanisms that can withstand friction, stress, machine oil, and damaging UV rays in indoor or outdoor applications.

  • Conductors are made from finely stranded bare copper wires that provide reliable power and performance in accordance with EN 60228
  • Individual conductors are coated in a high-quality, mechanical grade PVC-insulating compound that protects bare copper from corrosion prior to installation, and reduces crosstalk after termination
  • Gusset filled, intermediate jacket is made of a pressure extruded PVC-based, low-adhesion blend that keeps the inner core securely bundled for promoting higher tensile strength, while maintaining a high degree of flexibility
  • Overall Shield is constructed from a highly flexible tinned copper braid, which reduces the effects of outside interferences, and acts as a second level of defense if the outer jacket becomes worn or damaged
  • Durable outer jacket is made from an oil-resistant, PVC-based blend that has been adapted to the rigors and friction found inside cable/hose carrier systems
  • Outer jacket is Silicon-free in compliance with PV 3.10.7 – status 1992
  • Flame rating FT1
  • RoHS compliant
  • cRUus rated
  • CE rated
