Cable carriers - selection criteria

The cable carriers used were decided based on the available installation space. As a result, the length, width, height and bending radius of the cable carrier played an important role.

cable carriers

An enclosed system was required to protect the cable from dirt and damage. A Zipper-style energy chain from igus® was chosen to facilitate retrofitting in future.
