Lapp Kabel showcased the Ölflex DC 100 cable and the Ölflex Servo FD 7TCE cable at the recently held SPS IPC Drives event in Germany.
Developed specifically for the usage of direct current, the Ölflex DC 100 connection cable is the first series cable in the market that offers this feature. Capable of lasting for decades, this cable is similar to the firm’s Ölflex Classic 100 cable which proves suitable for alternating-current. For instance, the properties of both the cables are identical i.e. both cables have a PVC sheath and the same withstand voltage. However, the cables differ when it comes to their insulation as well as colour coding of the wires.
Ölflex Servo FD 7TCE cable
It’s not new that industries have to abide by strict standards and regulations but this scenario often results in becoming a tiresome and time-consuming process for cabling the machinery. Hence, the company has introduced one cable – the Ölflex Servo FD 7TCE for the control cabinet, rack and drag chain segments. With the use of this cable, industry players are at ease as this allows them to incorporate a single cable from the control cabinet or inverter via the cable rack to the machinery – even in a mobile drag chain – no matter if the installation is fixed, flexible or even ultra-flexible.
One of the interesting aspects of this cable is that it includes multiple features unlike any other cable available in the market. UV-resistant, flame retardant and oil-resistant, this cable is UL-listed as a ‘TC-ER’ rack cable and ‘flexible motor supply cable’ that can also be used on-site in the US. The fine copper wires in the conductors ensure that the cables are highly flexible and suitable for tight bending radii.
