Torsion-Resistant Cables

Twistable hybrid, bus, motor, and fiber-optic cables have been added to the torsion-resistant Chainflex robot cable line. The CF-Robot 9 is a hybrid control cable that is available shielded or unshielded; CF-Robot 8 is a shielded bus cable; CF-Robot 4 is a shielded position-feedback cable; and CF-Robot 6 and CF-Robot 7 are servomotor cables that are available shielded or unshielded. All five are oil resistant and flame retardant.

The CF-Robot 5 fiber-optic cable has a TPE outer jacket and is oil and UV resistant. It is 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.
