* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 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: 143 mm per linkLink per m: 7Travel: SChain length = 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 = 6 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 4,0 m
Travel = 8,0 m
starting at 14m up to max. 400mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 400m) 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 9,0 and 14 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Other installation types
Variant 1: Standard
Variant 2: Intermediate shelves
When many cables with different
diameters are used
- e-tubes can be divided up vertically and horizontally
Side plates 6002, separators 6003 for e-tubes, separators and intermediate shelves 420.X
form the basic grid structure of a rack-like system. Intermediate shelves of different widths can
be placed at height increments of 7 mm
The slotted separators 6005, which are open on one side,
(for e-tubes) can be retrofitted in the existing
interior separation system without dismantling it. In the installation of the open height slot separators, the top and bottom grid levels cannot accommodate an intermediate shelf.
