e-chain® solutions for your automotive application

In cars, commercial or special vehicles, the requirements for power supply solutions are becoming increasingly complex. Electrically controlled functions and setting options of cars require reliable, durable and light energy supplies for the constant supply of electricity and signals. Energy supplies by igus are suitable for confined spaces and can be individually tailored to weight and load restrictions. igus e-chains combine these properties in one product:

Examples of igus® energy supplies in onboard use

Van with e-chain® applications  
e-chain® in sliding door  
1 - Higher service life in the smallest installation space

e-chains® in sliding doors guide cables in the smallest installation space, e.g. for keyless entry systems and safety features. They prolong the cables' service life due to defined radii and kinematics.

e-chains® in the seating system  
2 - Safe cable guidance in seating systems

Electric systems in cars have increased immensely and more and more systems are permanently supplied with electricity so as to offer the necessary driving comfort. e-chains® are ideal to guide cables securely from A to B.

e-chain® in the wiper systems  
3 - Reliable protection despite constant movement

e-chains® are dimensionally stable in different environmental conditions and have high acceleration and force absorption. Therefore, they protect cables in the wiper systems despite constant movement.
