The world's No. 1 when it comes to ready-to-connect drive cables for use in energy chains

Harnessed and ready-to-connect cables in energy chains or connected to robots need special properties if they are to function reliably over a long period of time in spite of large numbers of cycles, high speeds, rates of acceleration and challenging ambient conditions. The chainflex cables used for readycable products are intensively tested in the company's own 3,800m² test laboratory, the largest in the industry. The harnessed readycable cables guarantee a long service life thanks to extensive tests and quality inspections in the company's own laboratory and more than 25 years of experience in the manufacture and harnessing of cables.

What are the advantages of machine-supported soldering or solder connections?

Find out everything about this topic in the free white paper

If machine engineers and system integrators cannot rely entirely on crimp connections, they have to pay special attention to the quality of the solder connections. That is the only way to ensure constant electric conductivity over a long period of time and to permanently protect the connection point, e.g. against gases or liquids.

Sensor for a smart cable|isense CF.P

This sensor has an affinity for cables

For cables that run in an energy chain, a particularly intensive "look" is required: 

  • The CF.P sensor measures the tensile forces on the cables
  • Permanently increased tensile forces can lead to cable damage and in the worst case, cable fire
  • The CF.P sensor identifies maintenance that has been carried out in an incorrect manner due to the cables
  • Data is stored on an SD card and can be read out for analyses
