No chance of misconfiguration
The online configurator acts as a step-by-step guide through the choice of cable chain, cables and relevant 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 power chain. When the configuration is complete, the customer receives a personalised quotation. The customer can then choose whether they want to purchase the power 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.
