Unshielded high flexing control cable organizes control signal wiring in constantly moving applications such as robotics or high mechanical loads. A special tear strip the cable's outer jacket allows it to be opened like a zipper to a desired length, saving time for assemblers and electricians. Order cable cut to your specified lengths, or in any bulk length.
High-Flex Flexing Control Cable
strip cable 50% faster with inner or outer cable jacket tear strip
igus CF9 and CF10 series multi-conductor control cables for continuous flexing applications are available in sizes from 20AWG to 14AWG with 3 to 7 unshielded (CF9 series) or 4 and 5 shielded (CF10 series) conductors. Individual conductors are bare copper and stranded for flexing applications. Conductor insulation is a mechanically high-quality black thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). Individual conductors are marked with white numbers for easy identification. A convenient ground conductor is included in the conductor count of each cable and has green-yellow insulation.
Unshielded Chainflex® cables have a tear strip underneath the outer jacket, but shielded Chainflex® cables have it underneath the inner jacket. With a few easy steps, the jacket can be opened like a zipper to the desired length by pulling on the special tear strip. The outer jacket/inner jacket can then be removed from conductors. This not only saves time and effort for assemblers and electricians, but also means they have no need for additional tools. Cables are designed such that the strip does not cause damage to the jacket or conductors, even after millions of motion cycles.
The igus CF9 and CF10 multi-conductor control cables are specifically designed, tested, and manufactured for continuous flexing, high mechanical load application requirements, and will provide a guaranteed service life between 5 million and 10 million cycles when operated within specified conditions.
