HELUKABEL? Shows Automation Cable Prowess at West Coast Expo

ELGIN, IL  –  
HELUKABEL®, one of the world’s leading cable manufacturers, will be displaying their vast array of cables suitable for the automation industry at the 2013 Automation Technology Expo (ATX) West being held February 12-14 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

The ATX shows, held regional throughout the Unites States, feature the latest, cutting-edge technology from the world's leading automation suppliers to help manufacturers compete in today’s global marketplace. The technology highlighted includes custom automation/assembly systems, robotics, sensors, motion control, drives, and motors. ATX West enables attendees, such as OEMs, machine builders, distributors, and research and labs, to interface directly with industry-leading companies from around the world to discuss their unique automation challenges.

Located at booth #4429, HELUKABEL® USA representatives will showcase their vast selection of high-quality cables and cable accessories, products that guarantee durable and reliable components for automated machinery. On display will be such cables as:


A PVC-jacketed, flexible power cable suitable for use in machine applications. Available in unshielded (600) and shielded (600-C), to provide resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI), this multi-purpose power cable is flame retardant (FT4 & NFPA 97), and UV and oil resistant (Oil Res I, with Oil Res II available). As a UL/CSA/CE/RoHS approved product, it is also WTTC, TC-ER, PLTC-ER, and ITC-ER rated for unprotected installation from the cable tray to the machine within industrial plants.



A UL/CSA/CE/RoHS approved, PUR-jacketed power cable suitable for use in the cable tracks of automated machine tools, machinery and robots. With a high resistance to mechanical strain and flexing stress, and TPE-wrapped conductors reducing internal friction, the MULTIFLEX 512®-PUR has been tested to withstand 10 million flexing cycles of continuous operation. For applications requiring EMI protection, the MULTIFLEX 512®-C-PUR has been shielded with a tinned copper braid providing 85 percent coverage to prevent external interference of impulse transmission.


Automation extends to offshore operations as well, so to meet customer needs on the water HELUKABEL® will be displaying its wide range of power and data shipwiring and marine cables with approvals from ABS, Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Lloyds Register of Shipping, Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), USSR Register of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the Bureau Veritas, UL and CSA. Many of these cables are halogen free (LSZH) and come unshielded or shielded, for seamless transmission during operations that involve EMI, and some cables are approved for use in cable tracks.
