1. Each chain link is reinforced by four cross bars
and thus provides a large unsupported length 2. e-chain® crossbars removable on both sides3. Stop-dog with brake
for noise reduction4. Optimised gliding surfaces with side wear pads5. Wide plastic crossbars – cable-friendly6. Dirt-repelling exterior contour7. Alternative available with Reverse Bend Radius (RBR).8. e-chain® available with Reverse Bend Radius9. 9. High stability through undercut design10. Inner/outer link principle
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 100 mm (with 5 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.
A=Moving end, B=Fixed endPitch: 250 mm per linkChain links per m: 4Travel: SChain length = S/2 + K
Unsupported length versus 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 A:
Fill weight = 15 [kg/m]
Unsupported length FLB = 7,0 m
Travel = 14 m
from 15 m to max. 450 mChain length= S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 450 m) Here, the e-chain® upper runs 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 travel lengths between 12 and 15 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.
