The E2/000 ESD series is igus® fourth generation
in this size. All field experience has been
incorporated into this series: easy and versatile assembly
combined with ruggedness - high strength
in combination with low-noise operation, long service life
for cables and a broad range of mounting options.
The design is
consistent within all E2/000 models. It is the standard
product trusted by machine builders
around the world.
Available inner widths Bi: 15 to 80 mmAvailable bend radii R: 38 to 145 mmPitch: 33,3 mm/link = 30 links/m
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (with 0,5 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.
Pitch: 33.3 mmlinks per m: 30chain length = S/2 + KA = moving endB = fixed end
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
The diagrams for unsupported lengths
apply to standard e-chains® in igumid GLW material. The values
can also be used for assessing e-chain® applications
in ESD special material.
If the respective maximum unsupported length exceeds 80%, the suitability of the e-chain® should be verified by a practice-oriented test.
from 10 m to max. 75 mChain length= S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 75 m) Here, the e-chain® upper runs 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 travel lengths between 4 and 10 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

"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.
