For new designs, we recommend the technically optimised e-chain® series E4.32 from the igus® E4.1 construction kit.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same measurements and mounting dimensions Series 28 is available in limited quantities ex stock. Product support and storage will be restricted from 2012. For any questions, please contact your igus® contact. Thank you for your understanding
To series E4.32
* 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.

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

2. Intermediate shelves
Separators can be placed at any point along a chain's cross section. Standrad separator part no. 281 offers safe stability due to its broad foot design, also when used thick cables or hoses. If the distance between the separators are large, the separator Part No. 281.14 can be used. For applications with many small cables, which should be respectively separated from each other by a separator, the separator with narrow base, part No. 283 , can be used in E-Chains®.
Additionally available for applications with E-Chains® (not tubes): notch separator part no. 293 with increased retention force. This separator is used in applications with very high humidity, e.g. composting plants, or in applications with extreme strain. The opening of the E-Chain® is hampered when the notch separator is used. All separators are movable and can for example be fixed in its position by spacer (not for tubes) in "side-mounted" applications.
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 form the basic grid of an interior separation system. At the height grid of 7 mm, shelves of various widths can be arranged in 3 levels. You can find recommendations for allocation in the section, Design data When assembling the slotted separator "open" the top and bottom "grid level" cannot be occupied by a shelf.

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.
