Please note: Before using this series on long travels, please consult igus®. We recommend an e-chain® that is openable in the outer radius for long travels. Example: Series 2500
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (with 1.5 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.

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 = 1,5 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 1,7 m
Travel = 3,3 m
from 10 m to max. 100 mChain length= S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 100 m) Here, the e-chain® upper runs gliding on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 4 and 10 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Option 1: Standard
Option 1: Standard Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section to divide the interior of the e-chain® - As standard, separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Slotted separator 14501
Vertical separation in e-tubes. Due to its slots, it allows basic vertical/horizontal interior separations.

"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.
