HELUKABEL Launches High-Flex, Cleanroom-Approved Power and Data Cables

 

ELGIN, Illinois – HELUKABEL®, one of the world’s leading cable manufacturers, expanded its cleanroom approved power and data cable product portfolio with the launch of its CLEANFLEX® series. These UL/CSA-approved, shielded and unshielded power and data cables are suitable for use in continuous-flexing, cable track-equipped machinery built for cleanroom applications, such as semiconductor and electronics manufacturing.

Cleanroom environments are a particularly challenging for manufacturers because even the smallest amount of contamination from particles, such as dust or microscopic materials coming from the machinery, can have damaging results on production. To prevent such particles from originating from the cable during continuous-flex operations, HELUKABEL® designed the CLEANFLEX® with a special polyurethane (PUR) outer jacket to minimize the release of cable dust into the air. The PUR jacket compound was rigorously tested and approved by the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Techniques and Automation after meeting their minimum particle emission into ambient air requirements.

CLEANFLEX® power and data cables are flame retardant and halogen free (LSZH), and resistant to oil, UV and chemicals, such as solvents, acids, alkalis and hydraulic fluids. They can withstand high levels of mechanical stresses and alternating bending cycles, and are tear, abrasion and impact resistant, even at cold temperatures. The CLEANFLEX® line is suitable for cleanroom environments at temperatures between -40°C and +80°C, application dependent.

HELUKABEL Launches High-Flex, Cleanroom-Approved Power and Data Cables

Both the power and data cables come in unshielded and shielded types to prevent signal interruption during cleanroom applications that expose the cables to high levels of electromagnetic interference. If radiation is present, CLEANFLEX® cables can withstand up to 100 Mrads of exposure. T...

Both the power and data cables come in unshielded and shielded types to prevent signal interruption during cleanroom applications that expose the cables to high levels of electromagnetic interference. If radiation is present, CLEANFLEX® cables can withstand up to 100 Mrads of exposure.

The CLEANFLEX®-HF power cable is available in sizes from 20 – 14 AWG, while the shielded HF-C power cable comes in 20 – 16 AWG. The CLEANFLEX®-HF and twisted-pair, shielded HF-TP-C data cables are available in sizes ranging from 24 – 22 AWG. Each power and data cable comes in varying conductor configurations.

In addition to UL and CSA, CLEANFLEX® cables are CE approved for machine builders exporting to Europe.
