1. No pin and bore connection2. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running3. Very large sliding surface4. Internal stop-dog5. KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side (strain relief is possible through separate tiewrap plates)6. Can be shortened or lengthened as required by modular structure7. Optional with or without integrated C-profile 8. Strain relief separator – E6.40.02.Z separator for use on the first or last chain link
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2 kg/m fill weight), which should be observed in all types of applications. Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

The unsupported length depends on fill weightX axis: unsupported length in m FLB/FLGY axis: fill weight in kg/mLower scale: travel S in mFLB = unsupported with permissible sagFLG = unsupported with straight upper run Reference example A: Fill weight = 1.5 [kg/m] Unsupported length FLB = 1.7 m Travel = 3.4 m
From 6 m to max. 60 mChain length = S/2+K2Long travel - gliding (up to max. 60 m) Here the e-chain® is used with the upper run gliding on the lower run. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 4.0m and 6m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Option 1: standard
Option 2: Optional
Option 3: Optional
1. Standard E6.40.1 standard – for all purposes Separator, wide base for maximum holding force and stability in e-chains® E6.40.2 Faster installation of cables Secure seating on one side with wide base, other side narrow for easy installation of cables 2300.X horizontal interior separation Locks securely into the separator at both ends, allowing a fixed width. Can be used as a full-width shelf for integrated interior separation or as a shelf for modular shelving at three levels.
Option 2 – Optional Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section to divide the interior of the e-chain® – As standard, separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link! Standard division with slotted separator 28222, (5 slots) – for combinations with full-width shelf 221.X locking separator E6.40.12, (7 slots) – for combinations with shelf 2210.X Strain relief separator E6.40.12.Z (7 slots), can be integrated into the mounting bracket, can be placed in any position. Can also be combined with full-width shelf 221.X and shelf 2210.X
Option 3 - Optional Full-width shelves are needed when using many thin cables with similar or same diametersFull-width shelf 221.X can be combined with separator, slotted 28222, side plate E6.40.13 and separator, asymmetric E6.40.18
