In this chart, you can find the technical parameters of the chainflex CF9 control cable. If the cable is operated in accordance with the operating conditions, a guaranteed service life of 5, 7.5 or 10 million double strokes is applicable depending on the application. The service life itself can even be significantly higher.
Suppose you use a cable with a diameter of 12mm in an energy chain with a radius of 100mm. This results in a bending factor of 8.3
(100mm/12mm). To receive a statement regarding the durability, you require the information from the technical framework conditions
(temperature and number of double strokes). With an assumed temperature range
of -25/+90°C) with 8xd,
the effective bending factor
is above the minimum limit of 7. 10 million double strokes
are guaranteed! With higher or lower temperature, the necessary factor for this guarantee level would be 8.5. This means that the number of guaranteed double strokes is reduced to 7.5 million. These statements provide reliability and planning safety for your entire plant!
