Module Connect - modular connector system

Save time and space

Module Connect is a new type of plug-in connector for connecting electric cables, fibre optic cables and pneumatic hose. Thanks to the simple modular design principle, an individual plug-in/disconnected point can be configured as a module made up of several connector housings.

Module Connect modular connector system

drylin® W Exchange

Smart bearing replacement directly on the rail

The innovative bearing housing makes it easy and fast to change the liner on the rail. By changing the liner directly on the rail, all assembly work for linear or drive units, like e.g. toothed belt axes, is eliminated.

smart plastics

More efficient maintenance and repair

The igus® components do not simply develop a defect unexpectedly but predict this defect and indicate a need for maintenance. With this new development, igus® has established predictive maintenance - smart production meets equally smart maintenance. A milestone.


Soft cable for the smallest bend radii

Due to their very low stiffness they are perfect for fast, short strokes and very small radii. The CFSOFT is suitable for all applications that involves very small installation spaces and short travels. Due to its easily bendable material, the CFSOFT does not press on energy supply systems in these applications.
