August 23, 2018 - Continuous flexing motor supply cable is available from AutomationDirect in customer specified one-foot increment lengths. igus Chainflex continuous flexing CF30 and CF31 motor supply cables are specifically designed, tested, and manufactured to be exposed to constant flexing, providing a cable service life between 5 million and 10 million cycles.
The cables are available with four unshielded (CF30 series) or four shielded (CF31 series) conductors in 16 AWG to 2 AWG sizes. Individual conductors are bare copper and stranded for flexing applications. Conductor insulation is a black TPE mixture that is sunlight and oil resistant and flame retardant. Chainflex cables have a jacket tear strip that allows the outer jacket to be stripped back from the conductors to the desired length.
The cables are cut to length in one-foot increments with a 10 or 20-foot minimum depending on cable gauge. The price per foot is the same per cable AWG regardless of length ordered.
In business since 1994, AutomationDirect is a distributor offering thousands of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, including PLCs, operator interfaces, AC drives, motors, stepper systems, sensors, motor controls, enclosures and more.
