DISCONTINUED MODEL For new constructions, we recommend the technically improved e-chain® Series R18840 from the igus® E4/light range.+25% more unsupported length, higher strength and tensile strength, same dimensions and connection dimensions Series R188 is available from stock in limited numbers. Product support and storage are limited as of 2012. For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding to the E4/light series R18840
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 50 mm (at 2 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.

Other installation types
Separators can be fitted anywhere in the chain cross section. The standard separator part no. 401 offers secure standing ability through its wide base, even for large cables/hoses. For applications with many small cables, which should be respectively separated from each other by a separator, the separator with narrow base Part No. 483 can be used. The separators 401 and 483 can be used both on e-chains® as well as on energy tubes from the series listed above.
With the various elements of the interior separation, the e-chains® and energy tubes can be divided both vertically and horizontally. Side plates and shelves allow a flexible separation structure. Shelves of various widths can be arranged in steps of 7mm on 7 levels. You can find recommendations for assignment in the "Design" chapter. For installing the open height slot separators, the top and bottom slots cannot be used for shelves. Examples of interior separation: For a very finely divided solution, height slot separator Part No. 418 are used. However, these cannot be integrated into existing shelving without removingthe interior separation system The height slot separator Part No. 419, which is open on one side, can be retrofitted without removing the existing interior separation system. (Does not apply to shelves in the upper or lower-most notches)

"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.
