Profinet is the world’s leading Ethernet-based communication solution for industrial automation. In order to advance the research of Profinet technology in moving applications, igus has now joined the Profibus Nutzerorganisation e.V. as a cable specialist.
Side-mounted igus energy chain, ensures reliable energy supply in high-speed lightweight linear robots.
The number of passengers on public transport has been increasing steadily for 20 years. This is good news for the industry, but also an increasing load on the rail network, trains, trams and equipment. Durable components are required that can withstand such high requirements and yet meet stringent fire safety standards.
Igus has now developed a new long-lasting Ethernet cable, the CFROBOT8.PLUS, to ensure that robot communication between the axes, the control system and superordinate systems functions flawlessly, even under extreme stress.
Save 30% installation time thanks to new igus pair shield design in chainflex servo cables
Soft, but tough: New cables for fast movements in small spaces
New ready-to-connect highly flexible chainflex hybrid cable for e-chains now available from Treotham with 36-month guarantee
New chainflex CF8821 data cable with guaranteed service life and UL approval for moving applications
To save installation space in energy chains, some manufacturers combine the servo cable for power transmission with the measuring system cable for position data transmission to make a so-called hybrid cable.
Secure bus communication even for hanging applications.
