Low Voltage Flat rubber Flexible Cable for Festoon Applications

  • Flexible flat cable designed for mechanical stresses, especially for applications with frequent bending during operation in one plane only.
  • The cable is used on festoon systems and for connecting movable parts of machine tools, material handling equipment.
  • Used also on industrial lifting equipment.
  • For use in wet or dry conditions, outdoors and indoors.
