LAPP Releases ÖLFLEX® SERVO FD 7TCE Tray-Rated Continuous Flex Cable For Servo Motors

POSTED 12/11/2019

FLORHAM PARK, NJ - LAPP, a global leader in producing industrial cables and connectors, recently added the ÖLFLEX® SERVO FD 7TCE to its portfolio of TC-ER-rated servo motor cables. This series meets the requirements of both tray-rated and continuous flex cabling — eliminating the time, cost and labor associated with installing two cable types.

The ÖLFLEX® SERVO FD 7TCE supports many power and signal conductor configurations found in today’s servo motors. Thanks to its ultra-fine copper wiring and high strand count, it is highly flexible—providing easy installation in cable chains with tight bending radii, as well as longevity up to several million bending cycles. The cable also utilizes EPR core insulation material for low capacitance, minimizing the voltage drop over long distances and reducing unwanted leakage currents.

Additionally, as a combined tray-rated and continuous flex cable, the FD 7TCE eliminates the need to join two different cable types with connectors — saving manufacturers time, labor and material costs. This single-cable solution also reduces the risk of vibration-related connectivity loss.

Other notable features and benefits include:

  • TC-ER approval per UL 1277
  • UV resistance
  • Oil resistant I/II and FT4 burn rating
  • Rated Flexible Motor Supply Cable 1000 V
