zipper ESD e-chains® deliver in terms of practicality and performance. The "zipper" function
makes them a very useful product to reduce assembly time.
The small pitch, the robust elastic zipper band, and the sturdy links work well in high acceleration environments.
The zipper Series is one of the most popular
igus® e-chain® series in demanding
* The required clearance height is HF = H + .59 in. (15 mm) (with .20 lbs/ft (0.3 kg/m) fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly narrow space conditions.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.
A=Moving end, B=Fixed end
Pitch per link: = .79” (20 mm)
Links per ft (m): = 15.24 (50)
For center mount applications:
Chain length = s/2 +K
Unsupported length versus fill weightX axis: Unsupported length in m FLB/FLG
Y axis: Fill weight in kg/ft
Lower scale: Travel S in ft
FLB = Unsupported with permissible sagFLG = Unsupported with straight upper run
The diagrams for unsupported lengths
apply to standard e-chains® in igumid GLW material. The values
can also be used for assessing e-chain® applications
in ESD special material.
If the respective maximum unsupported length exceeds 80%, the suitability of the e-chain® should be verified by a practice-oriented test.
