Available inner widths Bi: 50 to 250 mmAvailable bending radii R: 75 to 300 mmPitch: 67 mm/link = 15 links / m
For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® series 3400 from the igus® E2/000 range.Secure support of the opening crossbars, improved opening mechanism, larger unsupported lengths, identical dimensions
Series 340 is available from stock in limited numbers.
For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding
regarding the E2/000 Series 3400
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (with 2.5 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

2. Full-width shelves
They are used if only a vertical division is required. Spacers can be used to set the distance between the separators Ideally, they are used for side-mounted applications.
The use of full-width shelves makes sense when using many thin cables with similar diameters. This option always takes up the entire width of the chain.
For applications with many cables with different diameters, an interior separation with shelves should be used. Partial divisions in blocks can be used, or the entire width Bi - 7 mm can be used.

"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.
