Molded Cordsets and Extension Cables for Harsh Motion Applications
Phoenix Contact USA Posted 09/08/2011MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new high-flex M12 cordsets can flex up to 15 million bend-cycles. The sensor/actuator cables (SACs) meet the rigorous demands of robotics, motion and C-track installations, where cables need torosional and bending strength beyond standard PUR cable material.
The flexible cordsets’ gray PUR jacket is welding slag-resistant, so that it can flex, bend and twist during the manufacturing process. It is halogen-, silicone- and cadmium-free, and resistant to acids, alkaline solutions and solvents.
The M12 connectors feature a zinc die-cast coupling nut and are available in 3-, 4- and 5-position. The cordsets provide IP65/68/69K protection.
