DISCONTINUED MODEL For new constructions, we recommend the technically improved e-chain® Series 15050 from the igus® E4/light product range.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same dimensions and connection dimensions Series 150 is available from stock in limited numbers. Product support and storage are limited as of 2012. For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding to the E4/light Series 15050
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 60 mm (at 3 kg/m fill weight), which should be observed in all types of applications. Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Other installation types
Separators can be arranged in any position in the chain cross-section. The standard separator part number 501 offers secure standing ability with its wide base, even for large cables/hoses. The separators can be used both on e-chains® as well as on energy tubes from the series listed above. Also available for the applications with e-chains® (not tubes): Locking separator part. no. 504 with increased holding strength. This separator is used in applications with very high loads. Asymmetrical locking separator, part no. 508. This separator is used in applications with very high humidity, e.g. in composting plants. Opening the e-chain® is more difficult when using the locking separators. All separators can be moved and can be fixed can be fixed in position by spacers (not for tubes) for side-mounted applications. Note: The available inner height is reduced by 2 mm for each spacer, which can reach 4 mm with spacers attached on both sides. To prevent this, parts can also be installed from the outside onto the opening crossbar.
With the various elements of the interior separation, the e-chains® and energy tubes can be divided both vertically and horizontally. Side plates and shelves allow a flexible separation structure. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 11 levels. You can find recommendations for assignment in the "Design" chapter. For installing the open height slot separators, the top and bottom slots cannot be used for shelves. Examples of interior separation: Part no. 505 height slot separators are used for a very finely divided solution. However, these cannot be integrated into existing shelving without removingthe interior separation system The height slot separator Part No. 509, which is open on one side, can be retrofitted without removing the existing interior separation system. (Does not apply to shelves in the upper or lower-most notches)
