1. KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side2. Fixed or pivoting mounting brackets available3. Optimised ratio of inner to outer dimensions4. Strain relief element can be integrated5. Crossbars removable on both sides.
Available inner widths Bi: 50 to 400 mmAvailable bending radii R: 135 to 500 mmPitch: 91 mm/link = 11 links / m
For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® series 14240 from the igus® E4/light range.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same dimensions and connection dimensions
Series 142 is available from stock in limited numbers. Product support and storage are limited as of 2012.
For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding
to the E4/light series 14240
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 50 mm (with 2 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Other installation types
Separators can be fitted anywhere in the e-chain® cross section. The standard separator part no. 407 offers secure footing through its wide base, even for large cables/hoses. All separators can be moved and can be fixed in position (e.g. for side-mounted applications) by spacers.
With the various elements of the interior separation, the e-chains® can be divided both vertically and horizontally. Side plates and shelves allow a flexible separation structure. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7 mm on 7 levels. You can find recommendations for assignment in the "Design" chapter.

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super" aluminium trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® are gliding on top of themselves). The basic "Super" aluminium trough has a simple and cost-efficient designs and can be expanded for sophisticated plant engineering.
Its universal design makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
