Molex Incorporated recently launched a line of weld-slag and oil-resistant (WSOR) cable designed for use in harsh environments. Offered in a complete range of standard and custom termination styles, Molex WSOR cable reduces inventory costs by providing a single-cable solution for automotive, material handling and other industrial factory automation applications.
“Heretofore, machine and line builders had limited choice when selecting cables for rugged applications. Each machine required a different cable, leading to higher inventory costs, less shelf space, and confusion when differentiating between cables,” states Riky Comini, business development director for Molex industrial automation. “WSOR cable improves operational efficiencies by offering industry’s widest cross-section of styles for multiple applications, from welding to cutting oil environments.”
Rated for a wide temperature range (static -40 to +90°C), WSOR cable meets UL 758/1581 and VDE 472-803/B specifications. Suitable for machine sensors, valves and network connections, WSOR cable is available in cross sections of 0.25, 0.34, 0.50, and 0.75 to 1.50mm2. It can be terminated to a variety of industry-standard connectors, including the Molex Brad® M12 Power, Brad® Nano-Change® M8, Brad® Mini-Change®, DIN, Brad® M23 and I/O modules within a PROFINET or other Ethernet industrial network. The highly flexible cables feature a bend radius of 5x outside diameter for static and 7.5x outside diameter for dynamic and drag chain conditions. The outer jacket is available in four colors.
“Tool and line builders in automotive factories, machining centers and conveyor system manufacturers now have a rugged and more versatile alternative for their most demanding cable requirements,” adds Comini.
