igus® (East Providence, RI) has upgraded two of its top-selling cables designed for flexing applications on automated machinery. Chainflex® CF5 control cables and shielded CF6 cables now comply with 600-volt AWM styles. The new, improved cables are available immediately from stock and at the same price as before. By increasing the operating voltage to 600 volts, CF5 and CF6 control cables can now connect to motors worldwide — particularly in the U.S., where many motor applications require 480 volts. The new control cables have an outer PVC jacket that is resistant to oil, according to DIN EN. The conductors are bundled in short pitch lengths around a highly tensile-resistant rope core and the copper stranding is optimized for use inside a cable carrier.
