The clamp system as a strain relief for igus® e-chain systems® has proven itself well. Clamps are a suitable strain relief for all e-chains® with KMA mounting bracket and C rails option
The principle of clamps has proven very successful as strain relief for igus® e-chain systems®. Clamps are a suitable means of strain relief for all e-chains® with KMA mounting bracket and C-rails option.
Product range and materials
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.
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.
