1. Enclosed e-tube - Protection against light dirt accumulation, weld chipping and environmental influences 2. No pins and hole connections, hardly any abrasion 3. Can be shortened or lengthened as required by modular structure 4. Very large gliding surface 5. Inside stop dog 6. Small pitch for quiet, smooth run 7. KMA mounting bracket with "all around" fastening possibility (strain relief possible through separate chain tiewrap plates)
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (for 2 kg/m additional load) We request you to consult in case of especially restricted space ratios.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A = Moving end, B = Fixed endPitch: 27,8 mmLinks per m: 36 links/1000,8 mmTravel: SChain lenghts = 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
starting at 6m up to max. 60mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 60m) In this case, the e-chain® upper runglides on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend the project planning of such a system to be undertaken by our technicians. For travels between 4,0 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, R6.40.11 - NOTE: R6.40.11 only possible in combination with Bi = 62!
