1. Quick opening and closing
by means of zipper band
2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running
3. For high acceleration
4. Zipper can be lengthened and shortened
at any chain link
5. Interior separation with separators
and full-width shelves possible
6. Mounting bracket with integrated
strain relief possible
7. Also available as Zipper
E-tube Series R17
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (with 1.5 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Unsupported length versus 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
Reference example A:
Fill weight = 0,75 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 0,75 m
Travel = 1,5 m

Other installation types
Option 1: Separators
Option 2: full-width shelf
Option 1 – Separators
They are used if a vertical division of the chain interior is required.
Standard horizontal division Series 17.1 to 17.4: with separator, slotted 172, for Series 17.5
to 17.7: separator, slotted 174, both for combinations with full-width shelf 111.X.
Separators are assembled every 2nd chain link as standard.
Option 2 - Full-width shelves For use with many thin cables with similar diameters. Side plate 176 (Series 17.1 to 17.4) and 178 (Series 17.5 to 17.8) can be combined with separator, slotted, 172 or 174 and full-width shelf 111.X.
