Tough But Flexible Cables

Aug. 23, 2007
Chainflex CF9 and CF10 continuousflex cables are designed for high-flexing applications on automated, mobile machinery.

Chainflex CF9 and CF10 continuousflex cables are designed for high-flexing applications on automated, mobile machinery. CF9 and CF10 are equipped with bare copper conductors and handle oil, frost, chemicals, and exceptionally low or high temperatures. The cables have a smaller bend radius (five times the outer diameter or less) thanks to the thin-wall design of both the conductor insulation and outer jacket. The insulation and outer jacket are flexible, antiabrasive thermoplastic containing fire retardants. The nonporous outer jacket repels oil and cutting fluids.

Chainflex CF9 and CF10 operate in –31 to 212°F and are PVC and halogen-free, as well as UV resistant. CF9 comes in multiconductor layouts from 24 to 2 awg and CF10 in 26 to 12 awg.
