1. e-chain® links removable on both sides 2. Pivoting and removable e-tube lid 3. Stop dog with "brake" for noise reduction 4. Cable-friendly width for polymer crossbars 5. Optimized gliding surfaces with side wear pads 6. Interior separation in many versions 7. Enclosed and open areas can be combined 8. Dirt-resistant outer contour
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (at 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: 143 mm per linkLink per m: 7Travel: SChain length = 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
starting at 15m up to max. 450mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 450m) In this case, the e-chain® upper runglides on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend the project planning of such a system to be undertaken by our technicians. For travels between 10 and 15 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

2. Intermediate shelves
Option 1: Separators and spacers igus® separators are mounted every 2nd chain link as a standard! Note: Observe side clearance of min. 32 mm (E-Tube) and min. 6 mm (E-Chain®)!
Locking separator 6008 for e-chains® - with increased retention force for applications
with very high humidity or extreme
loads. The increased retention force is generated by asymmetric retaining claws. Please make sure of an even alignment.
Option 2: Intermediate shelves When using many cables of different diameters - E-Chains® and E-Tubes can be partitioned both vertically and horizontally
Side plates 6002, separators 6003 and intermediate shelves 420.X form the basic grid of a shelving system. At a height grid of 7 mm, intermediate shelves of various widths can be arranged in 15 levels For a very fine shelving solution, slotted separator 6004 is used. These cannot however be subsequently integrated in an existing division without dismantling the interior separation. The one-side open slotted separator Part No. 6005 can be subsequently integrated in existing interior separations without disassembly of the existing interior separation. In the installation of the open height slot separators, the top and bottom grid levels cannot accommodate an intermediate shelf.
