1. Each chain link is reinforced by four crossbars and thus offers a long unsupported length2. e-chain® links removable on both sides 3. Stop dog with "brake" for noise reduction4. Optimized gliding surface with side wear pads5. Cable-friendly width for polymer crossbars6. Dirt-resistant outer contour7. Alternatively available with reversed/two-side bending radii RBR!8. e-chain® available with reversed bending radii9. High stability through tongue and groove10. 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
Dividing separator 350.1
For vertical division with 450.X on 3 levels.
Horizontal crossbars 450.X
For horizontal division in conjunction with retaining clips
and dividing separators. Horizontal crossbars can be arranged in 3 levels in different widths.
