Delta M (ΔM)

The specification of ΔM is required only for the calculation of the energy chain length if the fixed end of the energy chain is placed beyond the center of the travel.


The deviation of the fixed end to the center of the travel is stated with ΔM.
Precise specifications are available in our catalog.

LK = Length of energy chain
S = Travel
R = Bending radius
ΔM = Deviation from the mean
K = π * R + "Safety"

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