** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A= Moving end, B= Fixed endPitch: 30,5 mmlinks per m: 33travel: SChain 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 Reference example A:
Fill weight = 0,75 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 0,85 m
Travel = 1,70 m
