1.No pin and bore connection, little abrasion2.Internal stop-dog3.Small pitch for quiet, smooth running4.Can be lengthened and shortened as required due to modular design5.Extremely large sliding surfaces6.Large inner height7.KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side8.Optionally with or without integrated C-profile
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 80 mm (at 2 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.

The unsupported length depends on fill weightX axis: unsupported length in m FLB/FLGY axis: fill weight in kg/mLower scale: travel S in mFLB = unsupported with permissible sagFLG = unsupported with straight upper run Reference example Fill weight = 4.0 [kg/m] Unsupported length FLB = 3.0 m Travel = 6.0 m
from 10 m to max. 100 m Chain length = S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 100 m) Here, the e-chain® upper run is positioned gliding on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travels between 6m and 10m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Other installation types
Option 1: standard
Option 2: Optional
Option 3: Optional
Standard 01 As standard, igus® separators are mounted every second chain link! 62.1 standard – for all uses Separator, wide base for maximum holding strength and stability in e-chains® 62.2 Faster installation of cables Separator for igus® openable crossbar 385.X. Q. One side with wide base for secure seating, opposite side is narrow for easy cable installation (light clamping). 62.3 For many thin cables Separator with narrow base for many thin cables fitted side by side. Space-saving, secure state – for e-chains®. Also available for QuickLock crossbars. 62.4 For e.g. side-mounted applications Asymmetrical separator, results in defined clearance and spacers can be dispensed with. For e-chains® 62.5 Locks in securely in 5mm increments Notch separator for notch crossbar with scaling. Can be positioned precisely. For e-chains® Recommended for side-mounted applications. 3200.x - Full-width shelf Locks in securely on both ends of the separator, fixed widths possible. Can be used as a full-width shelf for integrated interior separation or as a shelf for modular shelving at three levels.
Option 2: Optional As standard, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link! Separator 407 For vertical separation. Offers security due to its wide base design, also when used with large cables or hoses. Spacers 381.XX Spacers can be used to fix separators in position. To avoid reducing the internal height by 2mm, they can also be mounted on the opening crossbar from the outside (not for long travels). XX = Spacer width (10, 15 and 20mm). Slotted separator E6.62.01 For vertical separation. The slot allows basic vertical/horizontal shelving arrangements. Full-width shelf 320.X Recommended if many small cables with similar or same diameters are used. Full-width shelves can be arranged in steps of 15mm on 3 levels.
Option 2: Optional As standard, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link! Middle plate 148 for modular shelving with shelves 386.X at vertical intervals of 7 mm on 7 levels Height slot separator 1407For very fine interior separation. No retrofitting into an existing interior separation system without dismantling the interior separation. Side plate 146 like middle plate. Allows modular shelving right up to the side links. Shelves 386.X For horizontal separation. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 7 levels.
