1. Flip open right and left, accessible from top 2. Lateral gliding surfaces for side-mounted operation 3. Large pins - long service life 4. Lead-in chamfer - easy assembly 5. Small pitch for quiet, smooth run 6. Integrated strain relief possible 7. Cable-saving inner space 8. Dirt-resistant outer contour 9. Many-sided modular interior separations
Available inner widths Bi: 38 to 103 mm
Available bending radii R: 55 to 250 mm
Pitch: 27,8 mm per link = 36 links/m
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (at 1.5 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.

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 Reference example A:
Additional load = 2 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 1,2 m
Travel = 2,4 m
starting at 10m up to max. 100mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 100m) 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 4 and 10 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Variant 1: Standard
Variant 1: Standard
As a standard feature, igus® separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Standard slotted separator 2551
and slotted separator 2553
Vertical division in e-chains®. It can be used additionally for simple vertical/horizontal divisions due to its notches. (the separator used can be based on potential requirements of refitting)
Full-width shelf 220.X
Recommended if many thin cables with similar
or the same diameters are used. or integrated subdivision Push-in shelves can be arranged within the entire chain width of 5 mm (in 3 levels).
In the case of cables with different diameters,
shelves can be used at different heights. They can be arranged within the entire chain width in the high grid of 5 mm (in 3 levels).

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.
