* 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.

Standard 01 As standard, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link!Please observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-tube: 40mm 80.1 Standard - for all purposes Separator, wide base for maximum holding strength and stability in e-chains® and e-tubes. 80.3 For many thin cables Separator with narrow base for many thin cables fitted side by side. Space-saving, secure footing – for e-chains® and e-tubes. Also available for QuickLock crossbars. 80.4 For e.g. side-mounted applications Asymmetrical separator, results in defined clearance and spacers can be dispensed with. For e-chains® and e-tubes. 520.X Horizontal interior separation Locks securely into separators at both ends, giving a fixed width. Can be used as a full-width shelf for integrated interior separation or as a shelf for modular shelving at three levels.
Standard 02 As standard, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link!Please observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-tube: 40mm Height slot separator 6405 Fast installation - can be retrofitted in existing separation system without dismantling (top and bottom notches cannot be used for shelves) Middle plate 6403For modular shelving with shelves 420.X in height increments of 7 mm (in 15 levels). Side plate 6002 same as middle plates. Allows modular shelving right up to the side links. No clearance required! Shelves 420.X For horizontal separation. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7 mm on 15 levels - refer to the table below.
Option 3: Optional As a standard feature, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain linkPlease observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-chain®: 16 mm Height slot separator 509 Fast installation - can be retrofitted in existing separation system without dismantling (top and bottom notches cannot be used for shelves) Height slot separator 505For very fine interior separation. No retrofitting into an existing interior separation system without dismantling the interior separation. Shelves 420.X For horizontal separation. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 11 levels (not in combination with 504, 508).
Option 4: Optional As a standard feature, igus® separators should be fitted every 2nd chain linkPlease observe minimum clearance from the side links! e-chain®: 16 mm Middle plate 503 for separation with shelves 420.X (table on the left below) in vertical increments of 7 mm on 11 levels. Side plate 502 Side plate 502, middle plate 503 and shelves 420.X allow a flexible separation structure Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 11 levels. Shelves 420.X For horizontal separation. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 11 levels.

"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® glide on each other). The basic "Super-aluminium" trough is available in simple, cost-effective "basic designs" and can be expanded for sophisticated plant construction. This universal usability makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
