Quieter operation, longer service life, and easier assembly with new Energy Chain from igus

Automation Controls/Drives E2.1 energy chain igus

The improved E2.1 Energy Chain cable carrier offers cable-friendly interior separation, easier-opening design, and 50% quieter operation than previous generation systems.

Based on continuous development and new customer requirements, igus, a leader in the area of plastic energy supply systems, has introduced its newest two-piece Energy Chain – the E2.1.

Openable from either outer radius with a screwdriver or new chain opener, available free with initial order, the ES.1 allows easy access to cables and hoses, even in confined spaces. An integrated “brake” on the stop-dogs of the chain links ensure very quiet, low-vibration operation.

Designed for maximum service life
Ideal for machine tools and other applications with very restricted space, the new E2.1 series offers more internal cable space compared to previous generation systems with the same exterior dimensions.

Smooth, rounded edges increase the service life of cables and hoses used within the system, and an integrated grid system is provided on crossbars to allow for precise mounting.
