Cables withstand constant flexing in extreme conditions

30 April 2009

XTRA-GUARD cables from Alpha Wire, now available in the UK from Aerco, are designed for applications that involve constant flexing and require high system reliability in extreme conditions. There is a major difference between cables that are flexible and cables with high flexing capability, the latter being able to withstand the degree of flexing that cables are subjected to in applications such as robotics, assembly lines, cable track, automation and material handling equipment.

Alpha Wire XTRA-GUARD offers unmatched flexibility and durability being twice as flexible as ordinary PVC cable while being highly resistant to chemicals and other corrosive materials.

Alpha Wire has developed and built its own testing machine that ensures cables meet the rigours of harsh flexing environments. The company also provides a fully interactive online ‘SeleXion Guide’. At www.xtraguard.com users can enter environmental parameter requirements, in terms of operating temperatures, chemical and abrasion resistance and flex requirements to select the recommended cable. All XTRA-GUARD cables carry UL recognition and CSA certifications.
