Energy/Drag Chains Designed for continuous movement where tight bending radii is required.
Control and Signals As power control or signal cables on machines, portable tools, conveying equipment or similar industrial applications requiring screened cable for EMC.
Extreme Environments Extremely robust control cable with high abrasion and tear resistant properties plus high resistance to mineral oils and coolant emulsions.
- Extra long service life
- Extra high flexibility suitable for continuous movement
- Suitable for tight bending radii
- UV stabilised
- Flame retardant
- High oil resistance especially to coolant emulsions
- Resistant to solvents, acids, alkalis and hydraulic liquidity
- Ozone, hydrolysis and conditionally microbe resistant
- High abrasion and tear resistance
- Heat and chemical resistant (see Chemical Rating Chart)
