1. Quick opening and closing
by means of zipper band
2. For high acceleration
3. Version with larger pins and
double stop-dog system for long
service life and long unsupported length
4. Zipper can be lengthened and shortened
at any chain link
5. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running
6. Mounting bracket with integrated
strain relief possible
7. Internal separation with separators
and full-width shelves possible
8. Also available as Zipper
e-tube Series R15
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 20 mm (with 0,5 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.
A=Moving end, B=Fixed endPitch: 30,5 mmChain links per m: 33Travel: SChain length = S/2 + K
Unsupported length versus fill weightX axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLGY axis: Fill weight in kg/mLower scale: Travel S in mFLB = Unsupported with permissible sagFLG = Unsupported with straight upper run
Reference example A:
Fill weight = 0,75 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 0,85 m
Travel = 1,70 m

Option 1 – Standard
Separators are used if a vertical division of the chain interior is required.
Standard division with separator, slotted 154
Also for combinations with full-width shelf 111.X
As standard, separators are mounted at every second chain link.
Full-width shelves are used in the application of many thin cables with similar diameters.
Side plate 156 can be combined with slotted separator 154 and full-width shelf 111.X.

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super" aluminium trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® are gliding on top of themselves). The basic "Super" aluminium trough has a simple and cost-efficient designs and can be expanded for sophisticated plant engineering.
Its universal design makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
