AUSPACK 19 to debut LAPP digital engineering tool that shows how to easily configure power chains

The new ÖLFLEX® CONNECT CHAIN configurator from LAPP Australia will introduce visitors to AUSPACK 19 in March to a simple way to digitally engineer a power chain online with just a few clicks of the mouse.

The new tool from one the world’s leading providers of branded cable and connector systems, LAPP, ensures configuring power chains for automation, electrical and process solutions is no longer a complicated task, even for less experienced users.

The ÖLFLEX® CONNECT CHAIN configurator automatically switches off all error sources and always finds the best solution, says LAPP Australia General Manager Simon Pullinger. The online configurator, available nationally, acts as a step-by-step guide through the choice of cable chain, cables and relevant accessories.

ÖLFLEX® technology will feature in the debut of the new LAPP Australia operation at AUSPACK 2019 In Melbourne from March 26-29 (Stand G130). This first appearance of the fully-fledged LAPP subsidiary in Australia – opened in February 2018 – will provide key markets with a unique overview and personal introduction to Lapp’s globally respected product families, used in Australia for more than 30 years and produced at 18 manufacturing locations on four continents.

ÖLFLEX® CONNECT CHAIN ensures components are compatible every step of the way, especially when it comes to the cables’ minimum bend radius. The cable chain must not have a smaller bend radius than the cable. If this is the case, the configurator will display a warning message and suggest other types of cable chain. Other criteria include the travel length, acceleration, temperature behaviour and shielding. The configurator automatically excludes cables that are not suitable for the application.

“When the configuration is complete, users receive a personalised quotation and are then able to choose whether you want to purchase the power chain fully assembled by LAPP or as individual components, with the option of having the cables pre-cut to the appropriate lengths,” says Mr Pullinger.

LAPP Australia debuts at AUSPACK 2019 in March with a range of quality technologies vital to integrated electrical, process and automation engineering solutions.
