Ready-to-connect cables for motion, with guarantee
The motion plastics specialist igus has been developing cables for 29 years, which have been specifically designed for use in the energy chain and is therefore the number one for motion. Thanks to their special jacket materials, the highly flexible cables are very wear-resistant and with many approvals such as UL, EAC or DNV-GL, are also suitable for use in the desert, on oil rigs and in dynamic applications in intralogistics. Since all cables are tested in our own test laboratory spread over 2,750 square metres of floor space, igus is the only manufacturer on the market to offer a unique 36-month guarantee on its complete line of cables. The data from the test laboratory is also included in the service life calculator. igus offers all cables that are ready-to-connect and assembled as a readychain in an energy chain or also unharnessed as individual components without connector, sold by the metre or to the required length.
