Moving energy re-conceived. Design study: Implement longer travels with any chain size

No thrust force applied, for long travels ... pull e-chain

Would you like to guide cables safely without the need for classic energy chains? In the "pull-chain system" design study, chain links are only needed to arrange and guide the cables. Push-pull forces are no longer applied to the chain in the normal way. Instead, the cable guiding elements are suspended by tensioning cables and guided by means of a moving carriage and a deflector.
 
This means that longer travels can be implemented irrespective of the chain size. The complete system can be enclosed safely and uses up very little space.
