1. Closed all around - Very good protection of cables and hoses, also from hot chips2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth run3. Lid removable at the outer radius
for E2 R Series R68 new. Available inner widths Bi: 75 up to 175 mmAvailable bending radii R: 100 up to 300 mmPitch: 36 mm per link = 28 Links/m
For new constructions, we recommend the technically improved e-chain® series E2 tubes, R68 new
The old R68 series 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
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2,5 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.
A=Moving end, B=Fixed endPitch: 36mmLinks per m: 28Travel: STube length= 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

Other installation types
Option 1 - Separators
Option 2 - Full-width shelves
Option 3 - Shelves
Separators are used for the vertical partition of the interior of the energy tube. They are movable and thus offer the possibility to divide the interior into several compartments.
This option is expedient when using multiple thin cables with similar or identical diameters. This version always fills the entire inner width of the tube.
This option makes sense when many cables with different diameters are used. Either partial divisions in individual blocks can be created or the entire 10 mm width (Bi) can be used. Option 3 ‘Shelves’ can be combined only with option 1 ‘Separators’.

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.
