1. Fully enclosed - very good protection for cables and hoses, even against hot chips2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running3. Removable lids along outer radius
For E2 R Series R68 new Available inner widths Bi: 75 to 175 mmAvailable bend radii R: 100 to 300 mmPitch: 36 mm per link = 28 links/m
For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® Series E2 tubes, R68 new
Series R68 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
Series R68 New – Tube, opens along the outer radius
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (with 2,5 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
Option 1. Separators
Option 2: Full-width shelves
Option 3: Shelves
Separators are used to vertically separate the interior of the energy tube. They can be moved and allow the option to divide the interior into multiple chambers.
This option is useful when using many thin tubes with similar diameters. This option takes up the entire inner width of the tube.
This option is useful for applications with many cables with different diameters. Partial divisions in blocks can be used, or the entire width Bi - 10 mm can be used. The Option 3 Shelves can be combined only with Option 1 separators

"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.
