Cologne-based igus GmbH, expert on flexible cables for moving energy chain applications, has expanded its already comprehensive range of Chainflex bus cables. The CAT5e/GigE cables CFBUS.PVC.045 for dry environments and CFBUS.PUR.045 for environments with oil or coolants are now available ex stock. The task of bus cables for energy chains is to ensure that the transmission characteristics of the respective bus protocol are met, even after several million movement cycles. igus claims to be able to offer a solution for almost every bus protocol. From Profibus, DeviceNet, CC-Link through CAN-Bus, USB to all the Ethernet variants including GigE. This applies to standard and extreme applications as well as torsion. Where copper is not first choice (huge data rates, long travel) igus recommends glass and plastic fibre optic cables. igus offers different grades not only in the bus cable range, but also for control, motor and servo cables for energy chains.
