The line of P4 energy chains has been optimized for greater reliability. With the new P4.1 roller chain, there is a bearing point for pivoting in every chain link connection. These points are integrated with maintenance-free plain bearings, which minimize friction and more than double the expected service life. Container cranes in ports, for example, can achieve a service life of more than 15 years or 20,000+ operating hours.
In addition to the plain bearings, the P4.1 roller chain can be equipped with isense smart sensors. isense smart sensors monitor wear and abnormal operation in energy chains, finding small problems before they become critical failures. Engineers can access the service life data through any software system with the igus® Communication Module (iCOM), so maintenance is reduced to a minimum.
