Question

Let me know about the bend-resistant performance of a cable for the Robot Cable Connector "EE-1010-R".

Answer

A Robot Cable for the EE-1010-R has bending tolerance that is over three times higher than a common cable (electric cable) for the EE-1010.

Refer to the following results of the Cable Bending Destruction Test.

Cable Bending Destruction Test

1. Objective

To evaluate the bend-resistant performance of a normal cable (electric wire) for the EE-1010 and a Robot Cable (electric wire) for the EE-1010-R.

2. Conclusion

A Robot Cable (electric wire) for the EE-1010-R has bending tolerance that is over three times higher than a normal cable (electric wire) for the EE-1010.

Robot Cable: Absolutely cut off by bending about 43000 times

Normal Cable: Absolutely cut off by bending about 12000 times

3. Procedure

As shown in the figure 1, reciprocating bending at an angle of 45 degrees is given at a rate of 55 times per minute with a load of 4.9N. This procedure should be repeated until a cable is absolutely cut off.
