1. No pins and bore connections2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth run3. Very large gliding surface4. Inside stop dog5. KMA mounting brackets with "all around" fastening possibility (strain relief possible through separate chain tiewrap plates)6. Can be shortened or lengthened as required by modular structure7. Optional with or without integrated C profile 8. Strain relief separator- E6.40.02.Z for use on the first or last chain link
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2 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: 27,8 mmLinks per m: 36 links/1000,8 mmTravel: SChain lenghts = 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
Reference example A:
Additional load = 1,5 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 1,7 m
Travel = 3,4 m
starting at 6m up to max. 60mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 60m) 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 4,0 and 6 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Other installation types
Variant 1: Standard
Variant 2: Optional
Variant 3: Optional
E6.40.1 Standard - for all uses
Separator, wide base for maximum retaining force
and stability in e-chains®.
E6.40.2 Faster installation of cables
Firm seating on one side, with wide base, opposite side
narrow for easy installation of cables (slightly clamping).
2300.x Horizontal division
Locks in securely at both ends of separator, secure width-fixing possible.
Can be used as a full-width shelf
for all-through partitioning or as a shelf for rack-like
separation on 3 levels.
Variant 2 - Optional
Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section in order to divide up the interior of the e-chain® - As a standard feature, separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Standard division with slotted separator 28222, (5 slots) - for combinations with full-width shelf 221.X locking separator E6.40.12, (7 slots) - for combination with shelf 2210.X
Strain relief separator E6.40.12.Z (7 slots), can be integrated in the mounting bracket, can be placed in any position. Similarly combinable with full-width shelf 221.X and shelf 2210.X
Version 3 - Optional
locking separators are needed when using many thin cables with similar or same diameters
Locking separator221.X can be combined with separator, slotted 28222, side plate E6.40.13 and separator, asymmetric E6.40.18
