Select cable type

Select the desired type of cable in the chainflex® cable shop for cables sold by the metre or in the readycable® cable shop for ready-to-connect cables.

Filter cables

For unharnessed cables you can find the required cable using number of cores and conductor nominal cross section. In the case of ready-to-connect cables, you can choose according to manufacturer standards. Then filter for the required mechanical specifications.

Select suitable cable

With the selection of the appropriate cable, you will receive all the required detailed information. chainflex® cables are also available in various CAE databases.
