For new designs, we recommend the technically optimised e-chain® series E4.56 from the igus® E4.1 construction kit.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same measurements and mounting dimensions Series 40 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 E4.56
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 50 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

Separators can be placed at any point along a chain's cross section. Standrad separator part no. 401 offers safe stability due to its broad foot design, also when used thick cables or hoses. For applications with many small cables which should be respectively separated from each other by a separator, the separator with narrow base Part No. 483 can be used. The separators 401 and 483 can be used both in E-Chains® and energy tubes of the above-listed Series. Additionally available for applications with E-Chains® (not tubes): notch separator part no. 404 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 their positions by spacers (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 7 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.
For a very fine shelving solution, slotted separator Part No. 418 is used. However this cannot be integrated subsequently in an existing division without disassembly of the interior separation. The one-side open slotted separator Part No. 419 can be subsequently integrated in existing interior separations without disassembly of the existing interior separation. (Not for shelves in top or bottom grid)
