High-flex molded cables, cordsets
Phoenix Contact's M12 cordsets can flex up to 15 million bend-cycles and are designed for situations where cables need torosional and bending strength.
Phoenix Contact’s high-flex M12 cordsets can flex up to 15 million bend-cycles. The sensor/actuator cables (SACs) meet the rigorous demands of robotics, motion and C-track installations, where cables need torosional and bending strength beyond standard PUR cable material.
The flexible cordsets’ gray PUR jacket is welding slag-resistant, so that it can flex, bend and twist during the manufacturing process. It is halogen-, silicone- and cadmium-free. It is also resistant to acids, alkaline solutions and solvents.
The M12 connectors feature a zinc die-cast coupling nut and are available in 3-, 4- and 5-position. The cordsets provide IP65/68/69K protection.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
