Durable Energy Transmission for Harsh Environments

HELUKABEL presents new TPE drag chain cables and corrosion-resistant, stainless-steel chains at Hannover Messe 2024

HELUKABEL at Hannover Messe 2024

Chains, Cables & Assemblies - Quality from a Single Source. This is the HELUKABEL Group's motto for this year's Hannover Messe (April 22-26). At our booth in hall 13, stand D88, visitors can personally inspect our durable drag chain cables with robust TPE jacketing as well as the new stainless-steel model of our proven SLE drag chain.

Our partner country for Hannover Messe 2024 is Norway, which provides solutions for challenging industrial applications in harsh environments, such as the offshore and energy sectors. HELUKABEL subsidiary EKD Systems is presenting its new stainless-steel model of SLE drag chain for the first time at the show. This model is corrosion and seawater-resistant and provides a reliable and frictionless supply of power even in arctic temperatures as low as -40°C. The chains are available in different sizes up to 150 mm in height and 1,200 mm in width. They can carry weights up to 60 kg per meter and allow unsupported lengths of up 10 meters. The interior can be individually constructed with aluminum channels, modular plastic inserts, or cable-protecting foam inserts. This makes them a versatile and durable solution for drilling platforms, hydropower plants, and many other outdoor applications.

In order to fill these drag chains, HELUKABEL has expanded its portfolio of HELUCHAIN® drag chain cables with multiple new cables featuring TPE jacketing. This plastic material is especially robust and abrasion-resistant, which makes it ideal for extreme mechanical loads and weather conditions. With these capabilities, a new integrated solution of chain and cable is available for customers. Operators have the choice between the HELUCHAIN® MULTISPEED® TRONIC data cable with its bunch stranding, the HELUCHAIN® MULTISPEED® TRONIC TP data cable with its twisted pair stranding, and the HELUCHAIN® MULTISPEED® 600 single-conductor cable, all available in both shielded and unshielded models. The single-conductor cables are available with cross sections up to 250mm2 and are suitable for use as power cables in the largest drive systems. With the HELUCHAIN® MULTISPEED® 522 TPE control and connection cable, which was presented last year for the first time, the collection is complete. The complete product family is UL certified and suitable for international use.

Grounding Strap

HELUKABEL offers a wide range of grounding straps, protective conductors, and grounding blocks.

Another focal point of the HELUKABEL stand is the subject of grounding. Grounding is a very important part of industrial automation since more and more machines and systems are working side-by-side in confined spaces with their electromagnetic fields constantly influencing each other. In order to prevent disruptions in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), HELUKABEL offers a wide range of grounding straps, protective conductors, and grounding blocks, which provide customers with custom and functional grounding solutions without the heavy installation costs.

Users can also choose from HELUKABEL's wide range of data, network, and bus cables. This includes the HELUKAT® copper or HELUCOM® fiber-optic cables, for example, which exhibit exceptional transmission properties in demanding environments. The future-oriented technology of Single Pair Ethernet (SPE) which makes the transmission of data at gigabit speeds possible using only a single pair of wires, is already being offered by HELUKABEL in many cable types. With this product offering, HELUKABEL, a premium member of the SPE Industrial Partner Network, is regarded as a driver of innovation.

Industrial-grade Assemblies and Automatic Winding Technology

HELUKABEL subsidiaries Sangel Systemtechnik and KABELMAT Wickeltechnik are also taking part in the show. Sangel offers high-quality,
industrial-grade cable assemblies suitable for machine and plant construction. KABELMAT develops tools and machines for storing, winding, and cutting cables and wires, steel ropes, pipes, tubes, and profiles. Visitors can survey the LAGROL cable drum rack and the MOTROL ring and spool winder as well as examine the innovative Aufmaster measuring instruments and accompanying software. The idea behind the system is to automatically measure and document cable processing on the construction site, allowing electrical contractors to save both time and money, as well as simplify project invoicing.
