Electric utility company Igus is expanding its services with an online shop for connectors, where if cables are to be harnessed, then the matching connector can be found quickly, but often cannot be ordered in small quantities from the manufacturer.
Igus now offers an additional service with its new online shop for plug-in connectors: the customer can order the right connector for their cable at a reasonable price from a selection of well-known cable suppliers from stock and with no minimum order quantity.
“Whether motor, servo or data cable – with its chainflex range, Igus offers the user the best technical and, at the same time, the most cost-effective cable for use in the energy chain,” says the company.
Using the chainflex online shop, customers can directly order the right solution from the cable range in the desired length. If they want to harness existing sold-by-the-metre cables themselves, customers can now order a matching connector at the new Igus online shop.
The company adds that, in the connector shop, the selection of connectors are from cable manufacturers Intercontec, FCT, Yamaichi and Harting.
The customer has the choice between cost-effective plug-in connectors for signal connectors, connector sets and cable glands from Hummel, which are available directly from stock with no minimum order quantity.
This allows the engineer to harness and connect the cable for the application within a number of days.
Ready-to-connect cables for motion, with the guarantee ‘If customers want to save time and money, they can use the readycable service from Igus’, the company explains.
The motion cable specialist has been developing cables specifically for use in the energy chain for almost 30 years and offers over 4 200 drive cables, produced using 24 manufacturer standards ready for connection.
After harnessing, each cable is subjected to 100% digital and logic testing before being shipped.
“Since all chainflex cables are tested in our own test laboratory spread over 2 750 m2 of floor space, Igus is the only manufacturer in the market to offer a unique 36-month guarantee on its complete range of cables,” the company concludes.
