Alpha Wire EcoFlex PUR Continuous Flex Cables
Alpha Wire EcoFlex PUR continuous flex cables offer zero-halogen construction, oil resistance, and reduced diameter.
Alpha Wire’s new EcoFlex PUR continuous flex cables feature reduced size and weight and zero-halogen construction in a rugged, oil-resistant cable for continuous flex applications. As an addition to its EcoGen portfolio of compact, lightweight, zero-halogen wire and cable, EcoFlex PUR cables use mPPE insulation and a tough, abrasion-resistant polyurethane jacket that enables reliable 600V performance in cable that’s 40% smaller and 44% lighter than typical continuous flex cables.
“Saving weight and space is critical in industrial machinery, mining equipment, and outdoor applications, especially those utilizing cable tracks,” said Justin Dubow, senior product manager at Alpha Wire. “But the weight and space savings cannot come at the expense of durability and reliable performance in these demanding applications. At eight million flex cycles and counting, EcoFlex PUR has proven itself to be just as durable as traditional continuous flex cables, but with the additional weight and size savings and zero-halogen value only an EcoGen product could offer.”
The zero-halogen PUR jacket offers exceptional abrasion resistance, resists oils and UV radiation, and remains flexible at temperatures down to -40°C. Its mPPE insulation contributes to size and weight savings, and enables the cables to meet RoHS and REACH requirements for the elimination of hazardous substances and recyclability. EcoFlex PUR cables are currently available in more than 120 standard shielded and unshielded configurations, and up to 36 conductors.
