Fit for the long haul
AS interface cables by Leoni withstand 10 million bend cycles – whether in tracking chains or under torsion stress
The actuator-sensor interface with its high-grade IP6x protection is widely used in tough industrial environments worldwide, and in most cases the cables face a number of challenges every day in addition to the extreme torsion. From the very beginning Leoni has been developing application-specific cable solutions using special jacket material. In contrast to rubber-based products, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) can withstand the extreme conditions of industrial environments almost indefinitely – IEC, UL and CSA licenses are proof of this and allow these cables to be deployed internationally.
The halogen-free and flame-retardant variant (FRNC) made from polyurethane (PUR) features outstanding characteristics concerning tensile strength, elasticity, abrasion resistance, oil resistance and non-flammability. Furthermore, LEONI offers products that pass the aggravated UL 1581 “Cable Flame Test“ as well as the UL/CSA-FT4 and IEC 60332-3-24 Category C bundle fire tests respectively.
