Energy/Drag Chains Designed for continuous movement where tight bending radii is required.
Control and Signals For use on machines, portable tools, conveying equipment and other industrial applications requiring screened cables for EMC.


  • Extra high flexibility suitable for continuous movement
  • Screened to prevent external interference
  • Suitable for tight bending radii
  • UV stabilised
  • Flame retardant
  • To be earthed using EMC compatible glands 
  • Heat, oil and chemical resistant (see Chemical Rating Chart)


Conductor Annealed plain copper stranded extreme flexibility (Class 5 & 6).
Insulation Special SPVC with the cores stranded together in layers (if needed) while each layer has a different lay direction:
1st layer – left direction. 2nd layer – right direction.  
Each layer has a special wrapping for increased flexibility.
Screening Tinned copper braid 80% minimum coverage interwoven with synthetic cross-helix to improve bending behaviour.
Sheath Special SPVC.
