JANUARY 16, 2009--Chainflex continuous-flex cables for bus systems, including a cable specifically designed for USB applications, are suited for industrial environments requiring a USB 2.0 connection with data transmissions up to 16.4 ft. Cables feature a pressure-extruded, flame-retardant, TPE-blend outer jacket for extended service life to millions of cycles. They have a minimum bend radius of 12.5 times the outer cable diameter and operate within a permissible temperature range of -31º to +158ºF. An overall shield for increased EMI protection maintains performance in high-noise, industrial environments. They are silicon-free according to PV 3.10.7 and are UL AWM, ROHS, and CE compliant. Conductors are bundled rather than layered, then cabled into bundles for longer cable life in continuous-flex applications.

PRESS RELEASE

Continuous-flex cables for USB applications

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Dec 3, 2008 - igus Inc. now offers a full line of Chainflex continuous-flex cables for bus systems, including a cable specifically designed for USB applications. This cable is ideal for industrial environments requiring a USB 2.0 connection and provides fast, reliable data transmissions up to 16.4 feet.

Chainflex USB cables feature a pressure-extruded, flame-retardant, TPE-blend outer jacket for extended service life to millions of cycles. They boast a minimum bend radius of 12.5 times the outer cable diameter and operate within a permissible temperature range of -31 degrees Fahrenheit to +158 degrees Fahrenheit.
With an overall shield for increased EMI protection, Chainflex USB cables are unaffected by high-noise, industrial environments where crosstalk can be a problem. They are also silicon-free according to PV 3.10.7 and are UL AWM, ROHS and CE compliant.
Chainflex USB, like all Chainflex cables, features a construction in which the conductors are bundled rather than layered. The wires are twisted with a special pitch length and the resulting conductors are cabled into bundles. This pioneering construction enables longer cable life even in continuous-flex applications.
Chainflex cables are available in more than 800 sizes and styles. The line ranges from power and control to air hoses, data cables, servo cables and fiber optic cables. Chainflex cables are the ideal partners for Energy Chain cable carriers. For free samples, contact an igus design technician.
