Bus systems are increasingly being used in automation, as they ensure fast and reliable data exchange, save space and therefore, money. To meet these needs, igus has developed a new CAN bus cable for highly dynamic energy chain applications, such as in machine tools. This is available with either highly abrasion-resistant PVC or oil-resistant PUR outer jackets. Both cable options have EAC and CTP approvals, simplifying trade with Indian market.
The new CAN bus cable from igus guarantees a high transmission reliability of the data, even with very high stress on the cable during motion, such as when used in an energy chain. The new cost-effective bus cable is available in two outer jacket options – CFBUS.PVC.020 with highly abrasion-resistant PVC or CFBUS.PUR.020 with highly oil-resistant PUR. As with igus cables, the new CAN bus cables were also tested in the in-house test laboratory, spread over 2,750 sq.m. The new cables are used in processing machines and machine tools, as well as in low-temperature applications. To facilitate trade with Russia or EAEU member states both cables have CTP and EAC approval.
