Option 1: Separators
Option 2: Shelving
Option 3: Shelves
Separators are one possibility to divise the interior of the openable chain (series 3400/3500). If a large distance between separators is required, it is possible to use separators with wide feet or spacers. Both methods are used predominantly in the case of side-mounted chains.
Shelving This possibility exists for the chains of the series 3400/3500. This is useful if many thin cables with similar or identical diameters are employed. This variant always fills the entire inner width of the chain.
Interior separation with shelves should be used if many cables with different diameters are employed It is possible to achieve partial division into individual blocks or use the entire width Bi - 0.28 (7 mm). Option 3 shelves can be combined with option 1 separators.

Aluminum "Super Trough"- the igus® standard
The Aluminum "SuperTrough" is a modular guide trough system for long travels (when E-Chains® glide on themselves, as per sketch). Aluminum
"SuperTrough" is available in low cost "basic versions" and can be upgraded for heavy duty applications. This universal usage makes it the
igus® recommended new standard trough system.
