e-chain® cable carrier service life calculator

Select the energy chain you want to use and indicate whether it will be a self-supporting or gliding application by clicking the relevant radio button.  After entering the acceleration, speed, fill weight, and length of travel, you'll be given the calculated service life. You can also use the sliding scale to indicate which external influences - such as dirt, impact, or the ambient temperature - are present.  The expected service life is given in double strokes and miles.  By clicking on "Catalog page of the selected series", you'll be directed to a page with additional product information where you can inquire about or order the energy chain online.
