1. Quick opening and closing
of lids by means of zipper band
2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running
3. Protection against dirt and chips
4. Version with larger pins and double stop system for long service life and long unsupported length
5. Zipper can be lengthened and shortened together
at any chain link
6. Mounting bracket with integrated
strain relief possible
7. For high acceleration
8. Also available as zipper
e-chain® Series 15
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Unsupported length versus fill weightX axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLGY axis: Fill weight in kg/mLower scale: Travel S in mFLB = Unsupported with permissible sagFLG = Unsupported with straight upper run
Reference example A:
Fill weight = 0,75 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 0,85 m
Travel = 1,70 m

2. Full-width shelves
Option 1 – Separators
They are used if a vertical division of the chain interior is required.
Standard division with separator, slotted R154,
also for combinations with full-width shelf 111.X.
Separators are assembled every 2nd chain link as standard.
Option 2 – Full-width shelves
For use with many thin cables with similar diameters.

"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.
