1. Each chain link is reinforced by four crossbars and thus offers a long unsupported length 2. e-chain® links removable on both sides 3. Stop dog with "brake" for noise reduction 4. Optimized gliding surfaces with side wear pads 5. Cable-friendly width for polymer crossbars 6. The biggest igus® e-chain® 7. Dirt-resistant outer contour 8. Alternatively available with reversed/two-side bending radii RBR! 9. High stability through tongue and groove 10. Inner/outer link design
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (at 5 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 endB=Fixed endPitch: 250 mm per linkLinks per m: 4Travel: 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 = 15 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 7,0 m
Travel = 14 m
starting at 15m up to max. 450mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 450m) 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 12 and 15 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Variant 1: Standard
As a standard feature, igus® separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!Please observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-chain®: 6 mm
For vertical separation. offers secure stability under load with its wide base, even for thick cables and hoses.
Spacers can be used to fix separators
in position. To prevent a reduction of the inner height by 2 mm, they can also be mounted onto the crossbar from outside (not in long travels). XX = Wide spacers (choice of 10, 15, 20 mm).
