Previously, configuring a cable chain was a complicated undertaking, but now ÖLFLEX CONNECT CHAIN from LAPP turns it into child’s play. The tool lets users engineer a cable chain online with just a few clicks of the mouse. The configurator automatically eliminates risks of error and always finds the best solution. It’s an important addition to LAPP’s growing range of finished items. These kinds of systems solutions developed by a single company are growing in popularity because they deliver excellent quality and save time. LAPP was quick to recognise their importance for connection technology, and along with custom cables for clients, it also offers ready-to-install cable chain systems and servo products for connecting servo motors that conform with the standards laid down by leading manufacturers. Machinery and plant engineers will be able to see solution examples and test the ÖLFLEX CONNECT CHAIN configurator at the LAPP stand (Hall 2, Stand 310) at the SPS IPC Drives 2018 exhibition.

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, e.g. 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 properties 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. The customer can then choose 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.
