The principle of clamps has proven very successful as strain relief for igus® e-chain systems®. Clamps are a suitable means of strain relief for all e-chains® with KMA mounting bracket and C-rails option.

Can be integrated in all e-chains® with KMA mounting bracket and C profile option
Good readability of part number and lateral marking of the correct installation direction
Reduced installation height through optimal housing height (compared to conventional clamps up to 15 mm)
Space-saving and time-saving assembly
Possibility of delivery for complete systems with cables and assembled strain relief device
Improved foot for facilitated installation on the C profile
Easy to assemble due to set screws screwed in with hexagon socket
Long service life for dynamic applications due to improved pressure elements: Optimieredte double troughs, captive through holding lugs
The long load-bearing surface of the pressure elements improves the stability of the clamp.
The high rigidity of the pressure elements remarkably increases the operational safety.
Integrated ribs on the pressure elements - no loosening of the cable from the strain relief
Optional: CFXL clamps with increased holding power for heavy-duty applications (CFXL clamps are always installed in front of the e-chain® - CANNOT be integrated in KMA mounting brackets with C profile housing option!)
When the e-chain® glides on itself in long travels, the screwheads of the strain relief need to have a minimum distance of 10 mm to the upper edge of the e-chains® at the fixed end. This restriction means that it may not be possible to use all strain relief elements here at the fixed end of long travel e-chains®. Our clamps with threaded screws specifically designed for low installation height, reduce the installation height by up to 15 mm compared to conventional clamps. For unsupported e-chains® strain relief elements can be safely used.
The cables should be ideally fixed on both ends of the e-chains®. In any case they have to be fixed to the moving end of the e-chains®!
In the application of chainfix clamps on C profiles in the mounting bracket for Series 280, 2828, 290, 2928, R770, R7728, a shortened mating trough has to be used.
