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

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.
The igus readycable range extends from a large variety of cables in acc. with the standards of various manufacturers such as Siemens, SEW or Beckhoff, to cables for video/vision equipment and harnessed Ethernet cables up to CAT7.
