The energy chain length in the CAD model

Three different possibilities are available for you for entering or calculating the energy chain length.

1. Calculate     Choose "Calculate" for the automatic determination of the chain length

2. Direct entry     If the chain length is known, enter the length here in mm

3. No. of chain links     Enter the number of chain links here if it is known

Entry instructions on the following points

In the following pages, you'll receive tips on the creation of CAD models for energy chain systems.

Application

Information on unsupported or gliding applications.

Bending radius

Delta M - Unsupported application

The entry of ΔM is necessary for the calculation of the energy chain length only if the fixed end of the energy chain lies beyond the center of the travel.

Delta M - Gliding application

The entry of ΔM is necessary for the calculation of the energy chain length only if the fixed end of the energy chain lies beyond the center of the travel.

Feed in

Position of the moving end

The CAD file of the energy chain can be generated with any possible travel position.

Display options/Calculated values

Displayed part

Optionally individual components of the selected energy chain are displayed:

  • Chain link
  • Mounting bracket - moving end
  • Mounting bracket - fixed end

    Important!

    Only the individual parts can be selected from the current configuration.


  • We'd be glad to assist you in the selection and design of the right energy chain.
