Cable designed for long-travel crane installations

Developing the new chainflex medium voltage cable, the CFCRANE.PUR, igus has designed the cable to be suitable for very long travels of up to 1,000m such as those found in crane installations. Motor cables of this series are highly flexible, flame retardant, and oil and UV resistant. As a retrofit solution or for special projects, they are now available to order from stock.

“In the crane and material handling sectors, installations are getting increasingly larger and working at ever-higher dynamics and duty cycles,” said Justin Leonard, the-chain Director, igus. For projects of this kind, igus has developed the CFCRANE.PUR series of chainflex cables to complement its low-abrasion and low-noise roller energy chains.

Rated for voltages of 6/10kV, the cables are suitable for use in both indoor and outdoor applications, due to the special conductor structure and combination of the materials used. In addition, the CFCRANE.PUR series is up to 20% smaller in diameter in comparison to conventional motor cables, with a bending radius of 10xd.

Tested in the igus test laboratory, as with all 1,244 chainflex cables, these cables are available from stock with a lifetime guarantee of 36 months.
