Available inner widths Bi: 50 up to 250 mmAvailable bending radii R: 75 up to 300 mmPitch: 67 mm per link = 15 links/m
For new constructions, we recommend the technically improved e-chain® series 3500 from the igus® E2/000 range.Secure hold of the crossbars, improved opening system, greater unsupported lengths and same dimensions Series 340 is available in limited quantities ex stock. For any questions, please contact your igus® contact. Thank you for your understanding
To the E2/000 series 3500
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2,5 kg/m additional load), this should be observed for all types of applications.Please consult igus® if space is particurlarly restricted.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A = Moving end, B = Fixed endPitch: 67 mmLinks per m: 15Travel: SChain lenght = S/2 + K
The unsupported length is dependent on the additional load X-axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLG Y-axis Additional load in kg/m Lower scale: Travel S in m FLB = unsupported with permitted sag FLG = unsupported with straight upper run

2. Full-width shelves
They are used exclusively for vertical separation. Spacers can be used to fix the distance between the separators. They are preferably used in side-mounted chains.
The use of full-width shelves is expedient when using multiple thin cables with similar or identical diameters. This option always fills the entire width of the chain.
An interior separation with shelves should be used in the application of many cables with different diameters. Partial divisions in individual blocks can be implemented and the entire 7 mm width (Bi) can also be used.

Aluminum "Super Trough"- the igus® standard
The Aluminum "SuperTrough" is a modular guide trough system for long travels (when E-Chains® glide on themselves, as per sketch). Aluminum "SuperTrough" is available in low cost "basic versions" and can be upgraded for heavy duty applications. This universal usage makes it the igus® recommended new standard trough system.
