Selection of the chain size

In the selection of type, keep in mind that a space reserve is scheduled for all electric, pneumatic and media cables to compensate the forces arising through relative movements between e-chain® and cables as well as between cables. Cables are to be assembled with sufficient clearance. The following value can be assumed as a rough rule of thumb: The total cable cross section should not exceed 60% of the effective cross section and additionally maintain a space of 10% and at least 1 mm respectively to the next cable or e-chain®. A list of usable cross sections can be found in the displayed table. igus® would be glad to do the calculations for you.

We would be glad to help you in the selection of the right size with our triflex® R project planning software.

Example for determining the cable length:

ACable = d² xπ
  4
Examples:
A1 = (10mm x 10 mm xπ) / 4
= 78,5mm² x 7(Number of cables)
= 549,50mm²
A2 = (18mm x 18mm xπ) / 4
= 254,34mm²
A3 = (22mm x 22mm xπ) / 4
= 379,94mm²
ACable = A1 + A2 + A3 = 1183,7mm²
