Seven in one go: new chainflex series saves 35% cable costs
Treotham Automation, igus has developed the e-loop, a solution ideal for hanging installations in challenging applications like deep drilling rigs.
The energy chain safely guides cables vertically and with the new CFSPECIAL.5 series, there is now also the matching igus cable range for the e-loop. A combination of seven chainflex cables makes cost savings of 35% possible.
In a service loop the cables have no guide and no defined bend radius, they cannot move and break. When servicing or repairing, the complete system must be replaced. As an extremely resilient three-dimensional energy supply system, the e-loop combines the advantages of a polymer energy chain with a high-strength pull rope.
The rope absorbs the tensile forces inside the chain and transmits them to the mounting brackets. The modular e-chain has a defined bend radius and withstands vibrations and shocks thanks to PU protectors – ideal for use in drilling rigs or bucket wheel excavators. To match the e-loop, igus now presents the CFSPECIAL.5 cable series.
The cable package for the e-loop is available from Treotham and consists of seven different types of cable: three single-core cables of different cross sections, a protective conductor, two data cables and a hybrid cable.
The selection is based on the current Top Drive systems on the market and is continuously adapted. All chainflex cables are available without minimum order quantity.
