E4-1 - ONE energy chain® series for virtually any application

The E4-1 system combines all the benefits of its three predecessors in the E4 range. E4-1 cable carriers offer greater stability with the same or smaller dimensions while almost all the accessories and mounting brackets are the same. With igus® E4-1 cable carriers, the service life of your application can be increased and costs significantly reduced.

Overview of E4-1 advantages

For long service life, high stability, ease of installation and modularity

Eliminate costly components with the E4-1 energy chain system®. E4-1 - the standard for almost any application area.

E4-1 advantages  
E4-1 cable carrier

Rugged, low noise, and modular, System E4-1 integrates all the advantages of its E4 series predecessors.

 
E4-1 cable carrier assembly

Fast assembly: Push down the groove of the crossbar with a screwdriver. Loosen by prizing against the clamp.

 
E4-1 cable carrier link

High load capacity even when any shear forces are at work thanks to the special tongue-and-groove design.
