1. The e-chain® crossbars can be removed from both sides 2. Lid for e-tube can be opened and removed 3. Stop-dog with brake for noise reduction 4. Wide plastic crossbar - cable friendly 5. Optimised gliding surfaces with side wear pads 6. Modular internal separation7. closed and open types can be combined 8. Dirt-repelling outer contour
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (at 5 kg/m fill weight), which should be observed in all types of applications. Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

The unsupported length depends on fill weightX axis: unsupported length in m FLB/FLGY axis: fill weight in kg/mLower scale: travel S in mFLB = unsupported with permissible sagFLG = unsupported with straight upper run
From 15 m to max. 450 mChain length = S/2+K2Long travel - gliding (up to max. 450 m) Here the e-chain® is used with the upper run gliding on the lower run. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 10m and 15m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Other installation types
Option 1: Separators and spacers igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link as standard! Note: Observe side clearance of min. 32 mm (e-tube) and min. 6 mm (e-chain®)! Locking separator 6008 for e-chains® - with increased retention force for applications with very high humidity or extreme loads. The increased holding strength is produced by the asymmetric teeth locking into the crossbar. Please make sure of an even alignment
Option 2: Shelves When many cables with different diameters are used - e-chains® and e-tubes can be divided vertically and horizontally Side plates 6002, middle plate 6003 and shelves 420.X allow flexible partitioning Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 15 levels For a more divided solutionheight slot separators 6004 can be used. However, these cannot be integrated into existing shelving without removing the interior separation system The open height slot separator 6005 which is open on one side, can be retrofitted without removing the existing interior separation system. For installing the open height slot separators, the top and bottom slots cannot be used for shelves
