System E6 cable carriers: product overview

System E6 cable carriers offer numerous advantages besides a long life cycle. It operates extremely quietly with minimal vibrations, and the innovative design minimizes the polygon effect, which occurs during the rolling motion of a standard-design cable carrier. The ultra-low noise levels have been confirmed in a report from the Rheinland Inspection Agency.

Low noise System E6 cable carrier

A TÜV test conducted in May 2002 certified a value of 46dB(A) at 6.56 ft/s with Series E6-52-100-0.
