readychains® - Ready to fix and install
The delivery condition of your readychain® is crucial for your in-house transport and installation. To get the material to "flow" is one our most important tasks for your operation.

Modular plug-in connector for energy chains

Plug in your energy supply with just ONE connector

The connector modules can be adapted to the filling and geometry of the e-chain in one or more layers. This enables ideal cabling in terms of function and design for every application.
Combining the system with the universal strain relief system from igus enables secure attachment directly in the connector housing. The soft elements used enclose the cables and hold them securely in place without damaging them. Visually reminiscent of a honeycomb, the flexible structure adapts itself to different cable diameters which provides universal strain relief.
For Module Connect, there are a variety of application possibilities, such as at the chain fixed end or moving end, between two e-chains or for the insertion of cables in terminal boxes or switch cabinets.
