DISCONTINUED MODEL For new constructions, we recommend the technically improved e-chain® Series 2400 from the igus® E20000 product range.Secure hold of the crossbars, improved opening principle, longer unsupported lengths, same dimensions Series 240 is available from stock in limited numbers. For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding to the E20000 Series 2400
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 25 mm (at 1.5 kg/m fill weight), which should be observed in all types of applications. Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Option 2: Full-width shelves
Option 3: Shelves
At the same time, separators are the only option to separate the interior of the non-openable chain of the type 200. Separators with a wider base (not Series 200) limit the distance between 2 separators to 26mm. Spacers assume the same function. Both are used primarily for side-mounted chains.
This option is only for the openable chains of type 240 / 250. This option is useful when using many small cables with similar diameters. This variant always takes up the entire inner width of the chain.
This is an option for type 240250 openable chains. This option is useful for applications with many cables of different diameters. Both full width internal separation and partial width separation can be implemented.

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super-aluminium" trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® glide on each other). The basic "Super-aluminium" trough is available in simple, cost-effective "basic designs" and can be expanded for sophisticated plant construction. This universal usability makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
