Reduce your costs with MOTIONLINE® ASI cables!

Nexans will present its MOTIONLINE® ASI cable solution with larger conductor cross-section at this year's Inter Airport Europe trade fair in Munich (11-14 October 2011, hall B6, booth 350)

Full of surprises: in spite of its larger cable diameter of 2.5 mm², the MOTIONLINE ASI Future cable features the same overall dimensions as its 1.5 mm² counterpart.

Hanover/Nuremberg, September 30, 2011 – For many years, Nexans has offered special profile flat cables in the dimension 2x1.5 mm² for actuator-sensor interfaces (ASI). ASI Future, the new generation, allows for cable cross-sections of 2.5 mm² the same outer dimensions. Conventional ASI modules, which were originally envisaged for 1.5 mm² cables, can thus continue to be used. It is also suitable for use in drag chains ("PUR" version). Longer sections, such as in baggage carousels, can thus now be connected up in a more cost-efficient manner with increased performance.

The use of the backward-compatible cable significantly reduces the number of power packs and the associated fuse protection required for bridging longer sections. In addition to reducing the complexity of the system, this means shorter installation times and greater clarity regarding the cabling layout for you. ASI Future is also easy to install thanks to its halogen-free, soft rubber sheath. It is offered in the robust design variants PUR and TPE, which excel due to their high oil resistance, abrasion resistance and flame resistance (TPE up to 105 °C).
