...have the following task: secure supply of energy and data to mobile consumer equipment. They are suitable for universal applications:
For various types of motion and travel
Guidance of sensitive bus and data cables, as well as FOC, using the same techniques as with electric, gas, air and liquid hose guidance
Lasting operation under high dynamic loads in heavy-duty environments
Suitability for all types of environment and climatic zones
Our calculations and analyses are based on the result of ongoing pratical tests in our Technical Center and our experience of more then three decades with gliding applications. The focal points of our tests are push-pull forces, friction values and abrasion under widely varying conditions and speeds, as well as factors such as dirt, weathering or impact and bumps. We test all system components such as cables, hoses, strain relief and other accessories, in addition to the e-chains® or E_Tubes and guide troughs.
