Thomas and Betts, ABB PMA XR90The PMA XR90 multilayered conduit protects a greater range of cable for robotic and automation applications with sizes up to NW 70 and Metric 80. The multilayered conduit indicates the extent of surface wear with three concentric layers of Nylon 12, each a different color. With no wear, the PMA XR90 multilayered conduit retains its black surface. As wear occurs, the center layer begins to show its yellow surface, which is an alert to prepare for maintenance. As more abrasion occurs, the inner layer shows its red surface, which indicates that maintenance is required. This visual-inspection capability makes it more efficient to monitor wear and plan maintenance.
