From technical novelty to the standard right up to a forward-looking solution: that's what the Rollingenergy chains from Igus, For more than 45 years, the Motion Plastics specialist has developed power management systems that reliably route cables for all media including Ethernet, servo, motor and hoses.
Lead lines and hoses safely in working platforms or vertical lifters: For such applications Igus now developed his first plastic-steel hybrid chain. The new Energy Guide "YE.42" Thanks to high-performance polymers, 50% is lighter than conventional steel chains and provides 50% more unsupported lengths than plastic energy chains.
Hy-Line Computer Components introduces the Maverick 63104, the world's first extender that transmits all USB modes plus DisplayPort via a single CAT6e cable. The Extender transmits DisplayPort 1.2a- (4096 x 2160 @60Hz) and USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps data) between PC and monitor or host and device.
With the youngest member of the "Variapro" family Hummel turns to the process industry.

Modern cable drums know their still available cable stock and their location. In addition, they are able to make this information available worldwide at individually selectable locations - and all this wirelessly. This smart solution called "Smart Cable Drum (SCD)" is based on a joint project of Schildknecht and Lapp.
With the new KDS-R system Conta-Clip is expanding its range of cable feed systems to include round feedthroughs from M20 to M63 for cables with and without plugs. The cable management system consists of four basic components: the actual cable gland with integrated seal, the threaded and locking adapter, the split lock nut and the sealing elements, which are placed with inlays if required.
