Ready-to-connect igus hybrid cables save installation space, weight and construction time

November 7, 2022 2:22 pm

New ready cable hybrid cables suitable for drive technology from Siemens and SEW-EURODRIVE.

Save installation space and weight with just one cable for power and data: it’s easy with harnessed igus readycable hybrid cables. New to the range are ready-to-connect cables suitable for SEWEURODRIVE with MOVILINK DDI and Siemens SINAMICS S210 with OCC. In addition to PUR, the latter is also available with an outer jacket made of cost-effective PVC. Macros for the EPLAN Electric P8 software speed up cable planning by around 50 percent.

Reducing the complexity of automation solutions while saving money, time and installation space is a declared goal of engineers worldwide. This applies to cable planning as well. Here, so-called hybrid technology has become one of the major trends in recent years. While servo drive systems used to require several cables to transmit energy and data, hybrid cables combine the cores. “Hybrid technology is a pioneering development that we, as a cable specialist, are one hundred percent convinced is the way to go,” says Markus Hüffel, Product Manager of readychain and ready cable at igus. “We are therefore continuously expanding our portfolio of ready-to-connect hybrid cables from the ready cable series to offer our customers a fast, reliable, cost effective solution for continuous use in energy chains.” 


Optimise project planning with just-in-time delivery, free cutting and macros for EPLAN Electric P8

 The latest addition to the readycable series includes two models: a hybrid cable for motors from SEW-EURODRIVE, a German manufacturer, with the MOVILINK DDI interface, and a hybrid cable for Siemens servo drives suitable for SINAMICS S210. In addition to PUR, the outer jacket can be made of lower-cost polyvinyl chloride (PVC). “Lean, industrial processes in harnessing, very short throughput times and a high degree of warehousing enable designers to quickly have the new hybrid cables delivered directly from stock – at the desired length to the centimetre, without cutting charge, ready to connect and fit for immediate use,” says Hüffel. To save even more project planning time, igus provides direct links to their website’s macros for the EPLAN Electric P8 planning software. This allows the cables to be dragged and dropped into the digital cable plan as building blocks, reducing cable planning time by up to 50 percent. 


Fail-safe continuous use in energy chains

 Like all cables in the readycable series, the new hybrid cables have a strong outer jacket, a strain-relieved core, movement optimised stranded wires, a stranded structure with a short pitch length and a gusset-filling extruded inner jacket. “This design and these high-quality materials make our new hybrid cables fail-safe in continuous use in energy chains, even in compact applications,” says Hüffel. Materials with good electromagnetic compatibility prevent the energy and data transmission cores from negatively influencing each other. All models have undergone several million test cycles in the 3,800 square meter igus test laboratory. Igus, therefore, offers an above-average chainflex cable guarantee of 36 months. They also provide an online tool with which customers can calculate the expected service life of their specific application.

Reduce installation space and design time by 50 percent: igus is expanding its product portfolio of harnessed hybrid cables, adding ready-to-connect cables suitable for SEW-EURODRIVE with MOVILINK DDI and Siemens SINAMICS S210 with OCC. (Source: igus GmbH)
