March 16, 2018 - igus has developed the small-sized E2.10 energy chain from the E2.1 series. The e-chain has an inner height of only one centimeter and an outer height of one and a half centimeters. Like all links from the E2.1 product range, the chain links consist of only one bottom and side part, as well as one crossbar. The e-chain can be opened from both the top and the side with a screw driver. The opening mechanism is included in each initial order, which allows the chain to be opened and closed again by hand after the cables have been fitted. The “brake” on the stop-dog of the links enables quiet-running properties, making the e-chain suitable in applications including automatic doors, vehicles or medical furniture.
The E2.1 e-chain series is suitable for numerous applications. To accommodate a greater variety of applications, igus has expanded the E2.1 product range with three inner height sizes of 2.6, 3.8 and 4.8 centimeters. Due to the smooth contours, the interior of the e-chains is cable-friendly, offering up to 0.3 centimeters greater inner height. Separators with rounded edges are offered to extend the service life of hoses and cables even further. An integrated grid marking is also provided on the crossbars for mounting of the separators.
chainflex cables and energy chains from igus form a textbook unit, as chainflex cables are specifically designed for use in energy chains. The chainflex CFBUS.LB.060 Profinet cable allows data to be transmitted in the tightest of spaces with a bend radius of just 7.5 x d. All chainflex cables are tested in the igus in-house laboratory. readychain is a complete system with an e-chain and cables, and is available for customers to immediately starting using in an application.
