Chainfix offers reduced installation height through set screw and optimal housing height

 
Overall height

When the e-chain® glides on itself in long travels, the screw-heads of the strain relief need to have a minimum distance of 0.39 inches to the upper edge of the e-chains® at the fixed end. This restriction means that it may not be possible to use all strain relief elements here at the fixed end of long travel e-chains®. Our clamps with threaded screws specifically designed for low installation height, reduce the installation height by up to 0.59 inches compared to conventional clamps. For unsupported e-chains® strain relief elements can be safely used.

Please note:

The cables should be ideally fixed on both ends of the e-chains®. In any case they have to be fixed to the moving end of the e-chains®!

In the application of Chainfix clamps on C profiles in the mounting bracket for Series 280, 2828, 290, 2928, R770, R7728, a shortened mating trough has to be used.
Part no. for that is: CFX...K (add the letter "K" to the Part no. mentioned above)
