For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® series E4.56 from the igus® E4.1 system.+25% more unsupported length, higher stability and tensile strength, same dimensions and connection dimensions
Series 40 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 E4.56 series
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 50 mm (with 2 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Other installation types
Separators can be fitted anywhere in the e-chain® cross section. The standard separator part no. 401 offers secure stability under load with its wide base, even for large cables/hoses. For applications with many small cables which should be separated from each other, the separator with narrow base Part no. 483 can be used. The separators 401 and 483 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. 404with increased holding strength This separator is used in applications with very high humidity, e.g. composting plants, or in applications with extreme loads. Opening the
e-chain® is more difficult when using the locking separator. All separators can be moved and can be fixed in position (e.g. for side-mounted applications) by spacers (not for tubes).
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 7 mm on 7 levels. You can find recommendations for assignment in the "Design" chapter. For installing the open slotted separators, the top and bottom slots cannot be used for shelves.
For a very finely divided solution, slotted separators Part No. 418 are used. However, these cannot be integrated into existing shelving without removing
the interior separation system The slotted separator Part No. 419, 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)
