Cable types

We are providing an overview of our range of cables here in order to help facilitate your choice of suitable cable qualities. Find the cable qualities that meet your requirements.

PUR halogen-free – for extreme loads

PUR halogen-free  

Highly flexible cable in a drag chain

We use this robust, universally applicable polyurethane cable as the standard cable at Phoenix Contact. Note the "PUR" in the order designation.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Very good resistance to chemicals
  • Very good resistance to oils and lubricants
  • Very high resistance to abrasion
  • Flexible cable conduit capable (min. 4 million bending cycles)
  • Halogen-free

Highly flexible TPE-U

TPE-U  

Robot application

This cable is particularly well suited for simultaneous bending and torsional loads. The special sheath is made of thermoplastic elastomers on a urethane base and is resistant to welding sparks.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Very high temperature resistance
  • Flexible cable conduit capable (min. 15 million bending cycles)
  • Suitable for use with robots (min. 13 million torsional cycles)
  • Halogen-free
  • Extremely flame-retardant
  • Resistant to welding sparks
  • Not cross-linked and thus recyclable

PUR irradiated, resistant to welding sparks

PUR irradiated  

Welding robots

The industrial robots used in automated auto body construction are subjected to extreme stresses due to bending, welding sparks and UV radiation. Our cross-linked polyurethane cable withstands these stresses.

The cable has the following properties:

  • High temperature resistance
  • Suitable for use with robots (min. 5 million torsional cycles)
  • Extremely resistant to welding sparks
  • Halogen-free
  • UV-resistant

PUR/PVC – for increased loads

PUR/PVC  

Metal machining

Would you like to connect your own sensors or actuators in areas with increased stresses, such as for metal machining? This cable with a polyurethane/polyvinylchloride sheath combination is well suited for such tasks due to how easily it can be stripped.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Extremely easy to strip
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • Very good resistance to oils and lubricants
  • Low susceptibility to wear
  • Somewhat flexible cable conduit capable

PVC – for average mechanical strain

PVC  

Logistics/shipment

This low-cost polyvinylchloride cable can be used in areas with average mechanical strain, such as in packaging systems or assembly machines.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Extremely easy to strip
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • Somewhat resistant to oils and lubricants
  • Low susceptibility to wear

PE-X – for outdoor applications

PE-X  

Traffic

We provide our cross-linked polyethylene cable specifically for laying cables in outdoor areas. UV radiation, high and low temperatures, temperature shocks and effects from weathering do not pose a problem.

The cable has the following properties:

  • UV-resistant and weather-resistant
  • Very good resistance to oil
  • Low fume concentration
  • Halogen-free

PP – for the food industry

PP  

Food processing industry

Cables used in food production are subject to particular requirements. The food must not be contaminated and the materials being used have to be resistant to cleaning agents. Our polypropylene cables also have a light-colored outer sheath to help make contamination readily apparent.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Very resistant to cleaning agents and disinfectants
  • Easy detection of contamination thanks to the light-colored outer sheath
  • Halogen-free

RADOX® – for railway applications

Radox  

Railway application

In particular, strict requirements have to be met in the railway industry. The primary factor is fire protection, but good resistance to oils and lubricants also has a high priority. The special RADOX® outer sheath meets these requirements.

The cable has the following properties:

  • Fire protection according to railway standards
  • Very good resistance to oils and lubricants
  • Low fume concentration
  • Low bending radii
