E2 Tube Cable Carrier Applications

Protection from harsh environments


Energy Tube Cable Carriers are suitable for work areas subject to the hot chips, dirt and dust generated by woodworking, metalworking, and the pulp, textile, agriculture and coal industries - as well as many other harsh environments.

E2 R100 Energy Tube Cable Carriers are ideal for applications involving slow or medium speeds. E2 R is better for high speed applications.


Typical applications include:

  • Material handling
  • Construction equipment
  • Long travels
  • Semiconductor devices
  • ESD environments (igumid G material)
