Other installation types
Separators can be positioned at any point in the chain cross-section. The standard separator part no. 281 acts as a secure support by virtue of its wide base, even in the case of thick and cables/hoses Separator part no. 281-14 can be used to increase the spacing between the separators. In the case of applications with many small cables which need to be separated from each other by means of a separator, the separator with a narrow base, part no. 283 can be used in Energy Chains®. Additionally available for applications with Energy Chains® (not tubes) available: Locking separator part no. 293 with increased retention force. This separator is used for applications involving very high humidity - for example, compost plants - or extreme loads. Opening of the Energy Chain® is more difficult if locking separators are employed. All separators are movable and can be locked into position by means of spacers (not applicable to tubes) in the case of "side-mounted" applications, for example. Note: The available inner height is reduced by 0.08 (2 mm) per spacer, i.e. and can amount to 0.16 (4 mm) in the case of spacers installed on both sides. In order to avoid this, the parts can also be mounted on the snap-open crossbar from outside.
The various elements of the interior separation kit allow vertical as well as horizontal division of the Energy Chains® and tubes Side-plates and shelves form the basic framework of a rack system. On a height grid of 0.28 (7 mm), shelves of different widths can be arranged in 3 stages. Assignments are recommended in the chapter titled "Design specifications". During installation of the "open" slotted separator, the uppermost and lowermost "grid levels" cannot be occupied by a shelf. For special applications: Separators with integrated shelf Examples of interior separation: Slotted separator Art. No. 297 which is open on one side can be post-integrated into existing interior-separation systems without the need for dismantling them beforehand (does not apply to shelves at be uppermost or lowermost grid levels).

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.
