No more incorrect configurations, ever
The ÖLFLEX® CONNECT CHAIN configurator guides you step by step through the choice of cable chains, cables and appropriate accessories. It makes sure that components are compatible every step of the way, especially when it comes to the cables’ minimum bend radius. The cable chain must not have a smaller bend radius than the cables, otherwise malfunctions may occur and the cables’ life cycle will be curtailed. If this is the case, the configurator will display a warning message and suggest other types of cable chain. Other criteria include the travel length, acceleration, temperature behaviour and shielding. The configurator automatically excludes cables that are not suitable for the application. If required, it can position separators and shelves and makes sure that the weight of the cables is evenly distributed in the cable chain. When the configuration is complete, the customer receives a personalised quotation. They can decide whether they want to purchase the cable chain fully assembled by LAPP or as individual components, with the option of having the cables pre-cut to the appropriate lengths. If the customer opts for the former, all components are guaranteed to be in perfect working order and the fully assembled chain will undergo extensive testing before it is shipped.
