e-skin® flat single pods - connectable single profiles

The e-skin flat single pods consist of individually connectable cable chambers. One or more cables can be inserted into these chambers. Here at least 2 chambers must be connected with each other.
 
There are closed versions and openable versions. With the openable version, the chambers can be opened and closed with a zipper closure.  
 
One chamber is closed or opened at a time and extended with further chambers until the required width is reached. For the closed single profile SKF12C, a support chain SKF. S.080.070.0 is available, which equips the e-skin flat with an unsupported length and the defined radius of 70mm.  This support chain must only be used in connection with this single profile.

e-skin flat test report  

Test report: Noise level measurement

This test shows how quiet the igus 'e-skin flat' cable for cleanrooms is. Compared to flat ribbon cables from competitors, the e-skin flat has a noise level of only 29dB(A) - tested in the igus laboratory, Cologne with 1.5m/s unsupported, on standard support for sound measurement (dampened plate, without guide). 1m distance to the measuring device.
 

A

e-skin flat with 29dB(A)

B

Competitor 1 with 33dB(A)

C

Competitor 2 with 40dB(A)
