1. No pin and bore connection, little abrasion2. Internal stop-dog3. Very large gliding surfaces4. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running5. Can be lengthened and shortened as required, thanks to the modular design6. KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side (strain relief through separate tiewrap plates is possible)7. Optionally with or without integrated C-profile
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2 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 Reference example A: Fill weight = 1.5 [kg/m] Unsupported length FLB = 2.4 m Travel = 4.8 m
from 6 m to max. 80 m Chain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 80 m) Here, the e-chain® upper run is positioned gliding on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travels between 4m and 6m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

52.1 standard – for all uses Separator, wide base for maximum holding strength and stability in e-chains® 52.2 Faster cable installation Secure seating on one side, with a wide base, opposite side narrow for easy cable installation (easily clamped). 2300.X horizontal interior separation Locks securely into the separator at both ends, allowing a fixed width. Can be used as a full-width shelf for integrated interior separation or as a shelf for modular shelving at three levels.
Option 2 - OptionalFull width shelves are needed when using many small cables with similar or same diameters Full width shelf 321.X, for combinations with separator 38226, (3 slots) - and locking separator 38229 (3 slots) and increased holding forceFull width shelf 221.X, for combinations with separator 38222 (9 slots), locking separator 382215 (9 slots) with increased retention force and side plate 38224
Option 3 - Optional Full width shelves can be used at different heights when using cables with different diameters Shelf 2210.X for combinations with separator 38222 (9 slots), locking middle plate 382215 (9 slots) with increased holding force and side plate 38224
