Tech up, Cost down with chainflex® cables

igus supplies electrically identical cables with mechanically different qualities in the different cable areas. You can therefore achieve the optimum price/performance ratio for yourself. An example of control cables with a core cross section of 4x0.5mm²: 
  • CF880 control cable, bend radius 12.5xd and PVC outer jacket, very cost-effective solution
  • Control cable CF5, smaller bend radius 6.8 xd with PVC outer jacket and oil resistance: greater technical advantage leads to slightly higher price per metre
  • CF98 oil- and bio-oil-resistant cable with TPE jacket and a bend radius of only 4xd: greatest technical advantage and highest price

Price check and guarantee directly from the manufacturer: selection of 1,350 cables with a 36-month guarantee.

With the chainflex price check, the right cable for your needs can be found very quickly. There is every electrical specification in 7 cable qualities. The choice is yours: cost-effective price or cable for high technical requirements. You can choose the right product for you from the graded listing. Whatever option you go for, we give you a 36-month guarantee on your cable.
