NEBM / Motor cable


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The NEBM motor cable transmits signals between a servo motor and a controller. Its high protection class means that it can also withstand harsh environments, making it best suited for use in industrial factory automation. On motors, the plugs are often fitted close to one another so a compact size is essential. The cable's taut surfaces give it a robust and solid feel. The lateral surfaces make the plug easy to position. The shape and blue color of the locking nut communicate that it is a positioning element.

This motor cable is equipped with a clear, elaborate corporate identity. One just feels the attention to detail, which is evident in the choice of material, the compact shape as well as the use of colour. The shaping of the plug facilitates its handling. For us, this motor cable is an all round successful product which is why we award it the iF gold award.
