Manufacturers of drive units are able to reduce the wiring effort considerably and are at the same time able to save space , weight and costs.

Until now in drive technique generally two cables were needed. A cable for the power supply of the drive and a transmission cable for the signal transfer to the control unit. The development of new digital transmission systems makes possible the use of the so called one cable solution. Herewith, sensor signals and power supply is realized by a single cable.

The one cable solution by SAB combines the two functions in one cable.

The advantage for drive unit manufactures is evident. Due to the use of only one cable the wiring effort is reduced considerably. Low weight and space saving are further advantages especially for highly flexible applications as for example in cable tracks.

As an expert for special solutions SAB offers several one cable solutions which have been tested in our own technical center with regard to its capacity towards millions of bending cycles.
