1. No pin/hole connection, hardly any abrasion2. Can be shortened or lengthened as required by modular structure3. Small pitch for light, quiet run4. Continuous glide surfaces5. Smoother, cable-friendly interior6. Inside stop dog7. Very large gliding surface8. Closed design - protection against light dirt accumulation, weld chipping and environmental influences9.KMA mounting bracket with "all around" fastening possibility10. Optional with or without integrated C profile
Inner width Bi: 40 to 300 mm
Bending radii R: 75 up to 250
Pitch: 30 mm per link = 34 links/m
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2 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: 30 mmLinks per m: 34 linksTravel: SChain lenght = 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:
Additional load = 1,5 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 2,4 m
Travel = 4,8 m
From 6 m to max. 80 m Chain length = S/2+K2Travel length – gliding (up to max. 80 m) Here, the e-chain® upper to lower run is inserted gliding in a guide trough. We recommend the project planning of such a system to be undertaken by our technicians. For travels between 4 m and 6 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Option 1: Separators
Variant 1 - Separators
Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section in order to divide up the interior of the e-chain - As a standard feature, separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Indentations in the separator show the "clamping" side of the separator.
On this side, the separator is securely locked in the tube lid or base
Standard division with separator, R6.52.11
Strain relief tiewrap plate or strain relief with C rails can be locked in the last chain link.
