Flexible solutions for reliable wiring of industrial robots and electrical/electronic modules in automation equipment

Belden has launched a range reliable robotic connectors for industrial applications from Lumberg Automation™, including hundreds of different moulded torsion-resistant control cables, individual lengths of cable and a wide assortment of robust M12 connectors

Reliable Robotic Connectors for Industrial Applications

Lumberg’s robotic range of connectors and cables has been designed and manufactured to ensure exceptional reliability, the result of which is;

  • Reduction in operation costs
  • Superior tolerance even under intense mechanical stress
  • Outstanding levels of resistance to lubricants, welding sparks and chemicals
  • Complete flexibility due to the wide range of IP67-rated M8 and M12 industrial connectors

The connectors, which are available either straight or angled, with or without wiring, have a contact resistance ≤5 mΩ and a rated current of 4 A (at 40°C). Depending on the version, rated and test voltages are between 30 and 240 V or 0.8 und 2.5 kV (eff./60 s). Insulation resistance is >109 Ω. The connectors’ compact, translucent housings are made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane). They also have a self-locking threaded joint, rolled spring contacts, and an aptly named “piggyback circuit” ensuring continuous operation even when the LED display is damaged.

The Lumflex STL 500 is a UL-certified, four-pole control cable with a torsional strength of +/- 720° per meter, available by the metre on drums (100 or 500 m). It has a halogen-free jacket of black polyurethane (PUR) measuring 5.1 mm in diameter. The four copper conductors are colour-coded brown, white, blue and black (in a clockwise direction) and each has a cross-section of 42 x 0.10 mm. An aramid core prevents the conductors from sticking to each other or to the jacket, ensuring optimum strain relief. The control cable can carry an operating voltage of up to

500 V.

In the case of moulded control cables you can choose from single-ended cables measuring 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 m in length, and double-ended M8/M8 or M12/M12 versions measuring 0.3, 0.6, 1, 1.5, 2 or 5 m in length. And if there’s anything else you may need, we can also offer you customised solutions. All the cables guarantee reliable contact because the junction between the connector contacts and leads is completely enclosed in insulating plastic. This eliminates problems such as depressed pins or sporadic vibration-related short circuits. What’s more, the moulding ensures tight connections even when cables are subject to tension or compression.
