Treotham introduces a new innovation in bus cables for
Profinet, developed by igus to ensure secure bus communication in hanging
With a small cross-section and a fragile design, conventional
bus cables often reach their mechanical limits in hanging applications. igus’ new
CFSPECIAL.182.060 bus cable for Profinet features special strain relief
elements in the PUR outer jacket, which decouples the sensitive bus elements
from high tensile forces. All vertical applications such as storage and
retrieval equipment can now be reliably and safely supplied with bus signals.
Bus signals such as Profinet are transmitted via
special electrically coordinated bus cables, which must meet clearly defined
electrical parameters in order to ensure correct data transmission. Since the communication
does not require large levels of current, the cables typically have small cross-sections,
allowing them to remain very thin. However, the mechanical durability of these
bus cables reaches its limits very quickly in hanging applications, depending
on the cable length. This is because the maximum permissible tensile forces of
the cable can be exceeded very quickly just under its own weight.
The new high-tensile CFSPECIAL.182.060 bus cable for
Profinet features integrated strain relief elements, allowing hanging
applications of 100m and more, along with the ability to carry the weight of
the cable up to 50kg. New modern storage and retrieval equipment can now rely
on bus communication.
Key features of the new igus CFSPECIAL.182.060 bus
cables include shielded design with an abrasion-resistant PUR outer jacket and
integrated strain relief fibres; resistance to oil and coolant, as well as to
hydrolysis and microbes; high impact-resistance; and no PVC and halogen.
Similar to all igus cables, the CFSPECIAL.182.060 has
also been tested in its own test laboratory spread over a floor area of 2,750
