igus power/data transmission cables suitable for Bosch Rexroth motors and Siemens drives.

igus has released two hybrid power and data transmission cables. The first is the CF280.UL.H401 with PUR jacket suitable for the modular drive system ctrlX DRIVE from Bosch Rexroth for synchronous servo motors of the MS2N series. The other is a hybrid cable for Siemens SINAMICS S210 drives, now with PVC outer jacket. In total, igus carries more than 30 different types of continuous flexing cables which consists of two series: CF280.UL with PUR outer jacket and CF220.UL with PVC outer jacket. PVC is suited to energy chain applications with high cycle numbers in dry areas like woodworking machines. It has a working temperature range of +5 to +70°C. Halogen-free PUR exhibits notch and oil resistance suited to energy chain applications with high oil loads, like machine tools. It has a working temperature range from -25 to +80°C. The chainflex cables are available from stock, sold by the meter, as harnessed products, and are designed to match the well-known manufacturer standards.
