The E2/000 ESD series is the fourth generation in this size. All experiences have been incorporated into
this series: easy and versatile installation
combined with robustness – high stability
combined with low-noise operation, long cable service life
and diverse attachment options.
The version is
standardized for all E2/000 models. Mechanical engineers
all over the world trust in
Available inner widths Bi: 15 bis 80 mmAvailable bending radii R: 38 up to 145 mmPitch: 33,3 mm / link = 30 links/m
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (at 0,5 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.
Pitch: 33,3 mmlinks pro m: 30Chain length = S/2 + KA = Moving endB = Fixed end
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 The diagrams for unsupported length apply to the standard e-chains® in igumid GLW material. The values can also be used for the assessment of applications of e-chains® in special material ESD. In case the respective maximum unsupported length exceeds by 80%, the suitability of the e-chain® must be ensured by a practical test.
starting at 10m up to max. 75mChain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 75m) 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 and 10 m we recommend a larger unsupported E-Chain®.

Aluminum "Super Trough"- the igus® standard
The Aluminum "SuperTrough" is a modular guide trough system for long travels (when E-Chains® glide on themselves, as per sketch). Aluminum "SuperTrough" is available in low cost "basic versions" and can be upgraded for heavy duty applications. This universal usage makes it the igus® recommended new standard trough system.
