Offering around 4,600 harnessed motor, servo, signal and encoder cables suitable for 24 manufacturer standards, igus is the world's No. 1 when it comes to harnessed cables for use in energy chains. Providing seven different cable qualities, the range always offers the most cost-effective drive cable that is guaranteed to work. Thanks to the online service life calculator for ready-to-connect cables, the expected service life for the chosen application can be calculated very quickly. igus is also the only manufacturer to provide a guarantee of 36 months or more than 10 million strokes for its cables.
Harnessed and ready-to-connect cables in energy chains or connected to robots need special properties if they are to function reliably over a long period of time in spite of large numbers of cycles, high speeds, rates of acceleration and challenging ambient conditions. The chainflex cables used for readycable products are intensively tested in the company's own 3,800m² test laboratory, the largest in the industry. The harnessed readycable cables guarantee a long service life thanks to extensive tests and quality inspections in the company's own laboratory and more than 25 years of experience in the manufacture and harnessing of cables.

If machine engineers and system integrators cannot rely entirely on crimp connections, they have to pay special attention to the quality of the solder connections. That is the only way to ensure constant electric conductivity over a long period of time and to permanently protect the connection point, e.g. against gases or liquids.
"We have had great experience with these cables. They achieve a long service life on the field and hence make the handling of the remote control easier as they are flexible and therefore more mobile. Furthermore, we save time and do not need to provide plug-in connectors or other accessories. If we consider the internal costs of harnessing, readycables are no more expensive than unharnessed cables."

Hard rectangular connectors made easy: automated igus readycable cable harnessing of durable chainflex cables with the very robust HARTING industrial plug-in connectors.
Whether harnessed control cables within 24hrs from stock or individually tailored solutions from batch size 1 - the thoroughly tested chainflex cable quality combined with the HARTING types of connector Han 3A, 6B, 10B, 16B and 24B as a ready-to-connect readycable solution for industrial applications, helps save costs for time-consuming cable harnessing of the individual plug-in connectors and guarantees reliable and durable components.
For cables that run in an energy chain, a particularly intensive "look" is required:
