Servo Motor Cables

We needed a better cable in critical areas of our control system so TPC showed us their Super-Trex® and Trex-Onics® products but TPC challenged us to try anything to cause a failure. We decided to try the most abusive thing we could think of — run the cable over with a 60,000 lb track rig. When the initial test didn’t cause a failure, we performed a 0 degree turn, pivoting directly on the cable. The only damage to the cable was the abraded outer casing. Since this experiment 3 years ago, we have been using Super-Trex® and Trex-Onics® for our mission-critical cable assemblies, without a failure.

Trex-Onics® High-Flex Encoder Cable

The next generation of servo motor and encoder cables is a single-cable solution combining power conductors with signal pairs and the data element of dedicated encoder cables. The convergence of multiple roles into a single-cable solution greatly simplifies inventory management, installation and maintenance. TPC’s Trex-Onics® High-Flex Encoder Cable is built to withstand the harsh industrial environments in which many motors operate; abrasion resistance and long flex-life are key physical characteristics protecting the innovative electrical properties of this exciting, composite, single-cable solution.
