1. Excellent protection for cables and
hoses, from hot chips as well
2. Large pins, high strength
3. Smooth chip-repellent outer contour
4. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running
5. Lids can be removed along outer radius
6. Fully enclosed
7. KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side
8. Integrated strain relief is available specially for e-tubes
Available inner widths Bi: 50 to 250 mmAvailable bending radii R: 100 to 300 mmPitch: 36 mm/link = 28 links / m
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (with 2,5 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 4,0 and 6,0 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Other installation types
Option 1. Separators
Option 2: Full-width shelves
Option 3: Shelves
Option 1 – Separators
Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section to divide
of the e-chain® – As standard, separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Standard division with separator 311
(if bend radius R = 100 is selected, please use separator 34511)
Option 2 - Full-width shelves
Required when thin cables with similar or the same diameters are used
Slotted separator 312 or slotted separator 312.24 with wide base -
For use with full-width shelf 221.X
Option 3 - Full-width shelves Shelves can be used with height adjustments for cables with different diameters. Partial divisions in blocks can be used, or the entire width Bi - 10 mm can be used.
Shelf 2210.X can be combined with side plate 313 and separator 314
Option 3 "Shelves" can be combined with Option 1 "Separators"

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super" aluminium trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® are gliding on top of themselves). The basic "Super" aluminium trough has a simple and cost-efficient designs and can be expanded for sophisticated plant engineering.
Its universal design makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
