Longer Service Life in Drag Chain Systems
Discover the new HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA drag chain cable now!
With the HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA, Helukabel is launching a new version of its tried-and-tested drag chain cables.
With the HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA, HELUKABEL is launching a new version of its proven drag chain cable. The completely redesigned cable offers users a whole range of benefits that are particularly useful in demanding environments: from outdoor crane systems exposed to fluctuating temperatures and weather conditions to pick-and-place applications with high dynamics and small installation spaces.
The requirements for the use of drag chains in machine and plant construction continue to increase: On the one hand, the systems have to cope with ever greater travel distances, accelerations and speeds, and on the other hand, the available installation space is shrinking due to increasingly compact designs. The cables used in the drag chains must therefore be highly flexible and resilient, but also as thin and light as possible.
With the HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA, HELUKABEL offers the ideal solution for this challenge: This further development of the proven MULTISPEED 500-TPE UL/CSA drag chain cable has an innovative outer sheath made of TPE material. As a result, it is up to ten percent thinner and four percent lighter than comparable polyurethane (PUR) versions - with very high abrasion resistance. This saves users valuable space in tightly packed chains. The lower weight also allows for greater dynamics in the application. Another innovation is the temperature range, which has been extended both upwards and downwards. This significantly increases the service life of the cable in many applications.
Another completely new feature is the integrated tear thread, which allows the HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA to be stripped over longer lengths in a convenient, quick and safe manner. This significantly reduces installation time. Thanks to its UL and CSA approvals, export-oriented machine and plant manufacturers can use the cable internationally, thus avoiding double stocking and simplifying their documentation.
With almost 50 million bending cycles, HELUKABEL has tested the new cable extensively in its own test laboratories.
The proven advantages of the MULTISPEED series are also found in the latest version. These include the small bending radius of 5xd, the gusset-filling jacket for optimum core guidance and the pair/bundle stranding of seven cores to distribute the forces acting on them evenly. The HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA is also available in a shielded version with maximum coverage to minimise electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) interference.
With almost 50 million bending cycles, HELUKABEL has tested the new cable extensively in its own test laboratories. The HELUCHAIN MULTISPEED 522-TPE UL/CSA provides users with a highly functional, durable and efficient solution for use in energy supply systems. As a system provider, HELUKABEL also supplies completely ready-to-install chains, including cables and connectors, from a single source.
