igus Inc. now offers a full line of Chainflex continuous-flex cables for bus systems, including a cable specifically designed for USB applications. This cable is recommended for industrial environments requiring a USB 2.0 connection and provides fast, reliable data transmissions up to 16.4 feet. Chainflex USB cables feature a pressure-extruded, flame-retardant, TPE-blend outer jacket for extended service life to millions of cycles. They boast a minimum bend radius of 12.5 times the outer cable diameter and operate within a permissible temperature range of -31 degrees Fahrenheit to +158 degrees Fahrenheit. With an overall shield for increased EMI protection, Chainflex USB cables are unaffected by high-noise, industrial environments where crosstalk can be a problem. They are also silicon-free according to PV 3.10.7 and are UL AWM, ROHS and CE compliant.
