Chainflex CF7 and CF8 power and control cables have short-pitch conductor twisting for long life.
Chainflex CF7 and CF8 power and control cables have short-pitch conductor twisting for long life. Suitable for high-flex applications, the cables feature a low-adhesion, PUR-blend outer jacket and are oil and coolant resistant as well as flame retardant. The cables operate at temperatures from –4 to 176°F and have a minimum bending radius of 7123 the outer cable diameter. CF8 cables are equipped with a high-coverage shield (90% optical). The cables are bundled rather than layered for a uniform bend radius across each conductor. More than 20 different sizes and five awgs are available.
