Industrially harnessed and 100% tested

100% safety thanks to industrial harnessing

Experience the readycable® factory in its diversity

Harnessed and ready-to-connect cables in energy chains or connected to robots need special properties if they are to function reliably over a long period of time in spite of large numbers of cycles, high speeds, rates of acceleration and challenging ambient conditions. The chainflex cables used for readycable products are intensively tested in the company's own 3,800m² test laboratory, the largest in the industry. The harnessed readycable cables guarantee a long service life thanks to extensive tests and quality inspections in the company's own laboratory and more than 25 years of experience in the manufacture and harnessing of cables.

What are the advantages of machine-supported soldering or solder connections?

Find out everything about this topic in the free white paper

If machine engineers and system integrators cannot rely entirely on crimp connections, they have to pay special attention to the quality of the solder connections. That is the only way to ensure constant electric conductivity over a long period of time and to permanently protect the connection point, e.g. against gases or liquids.

Drive Tech

Cables for drive technology with and without connectors

The igus business units, chainflex and readycable, develop and produce cables that are sold by the metre and dimension and harness cables with plug-in connectors for direct connection to electrical drives.

Why our customers recommend us!

readycable application examples from practice

A perfect match: readycable industry

igus cable harnessing with industrial plug-in connectors by HARTING

Hard rectangular connectors made easy: automated igus readycable cable harnessing of durable chainflex cables with the very robust HARTING industrial plug-in connectors.
Whether harnessed control cables within 24hrs from stock or individually tailored solutions from batch size 1 - the thoroughly tested chainflex cable quality combined with the HARTING types of connector Han 3A, 6B, 10B, 16B and 24B as a ready-to-connect readycable solution for industrial applications, helps save costs for time-consuming cable harnessing of the individual plug-in connectors and guarantees reliable and durable components.

Sensor for a smart cable|isense CF.P

This sensor has an affinity for cables

For cables that run in an energy chain, a particularly intensive "look" is required: 

  • The CF.P sensor measures the tensile forces on the cables
  • Permanently increased tensile forces can lead to cable damage and in the worst case, cable fire
  • The CF.P sensor identifies maintenance that has been carried out in an incorrect manner due to the cables
  • Data is stored on an SD card and can be read out for analyses

... available from stock!

For users who want to configure their individual interface themselves, there are now Module Connect sets with three or four cable inputs.They consist of carrier housings, connector housings, sealing inserts and strain relief. Accessories, such as single and double locking devices and fixing elements, can be ordered to match the application. Contact inserts for individual configuration are also available at igus!
