Rockwell Automation: New PUR and PVC Single-Cable Options Ease Installation, Maintenance

February 3, 2020

Industrial operators can speed up installation times and reduce parts inventories by using a single cable to provide both power and feedback between drives and motors. And now, operators have more single-cable options at their disposal with the release of new Allen-Bradley 2090 single cables that include halogen-free PUR and PVC options.

The halogen-free options are ideal for applications like food and beverage, where users want to reduce exposure to toxins, and for applications looking to meet IEC 60754-1.

The cables are designed for systems that use Kinetix 5500 and 5700 servo drives, Kinetix VP-Series servo motors and Kinetix VPAR electric cylinders. The cables also have a smaller bend radius for continuous-flex and static applications and are available in a wide range of cable AWGs, types and connector options.
