For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® series R4.80 from the igus® E4.1 system.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same dimensions and connection dimensions
Series R98 is available from stock in limited numbers. Product support and storage are limited as of 2012.
For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding
to the R4.80 series
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 60 mm (with 3 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Other installation types
Separators can be fitted anywhere in the e-chain® cross section. The standard separator Part no. 501 offers secure standing ability with its wide base, also for large cables/hoses.
With the various elements of the interior separation, the e-chains® and energy tubes can be divided both vertically and horizontally. Side plates and shelves allow a flexible separation structure. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7 mm on 11 levels. You can find recommendations for assignment in the "Design" chapter. For installing the open slotted separators, the top and bottom slots cannot be used for shelves.
