E4Q series energy chains have been developed to offer the best possible solution for unsupported and long travels. Based on the robust E4.1 energy chain standard that has been proven for over 12 years, the new series brings a long service life and a high degree of modularity.
Typical application areas: machine tools, cranes, automation systems
Modular extender crossbar concept with E4Q opening mechanism: adapt energy chain individually to hose diameter. Easily install without tools and replace hoses as needed.

Depending on accessibility, choose the side from which you want to fit the shelf and see whether it is easier to access the inner or outer radius of the energy chain in order to release the crossbars. The shelves are locked in place by means of the integrated slider and automatically when the crossbar is fitted. Thanks to positive-locking, assembly is possible with virtually no force. Locking is simple and fast but the shelves are held securely in place. To unlock, release the crossbar on the inner or outer radius, depending on accessibility. The new E4Q e-chains can be opened quickly and without tools. After the crossbar has been released, the shelf can be unlocked by means of the slider and then simply pulled out.
Opening of the lock via integrated slider.
Shelf can be used in several layers and securely locked
When the crossbar is inserted, the lock is automatically activated.

Tool-free opening and closing.
Four stop-dogs for maximum strength in any installation orientation.
Less material in places where it does not add to strength.
Optional noise dampeners for even quieter operation.
Interior separation product range, also for complex division.
Notches in the crossbar for secure grip of the separators.
Optional noise dampening – new concealed system for noise reduction. Can be retrofitted any time. Rubber elements attached to the horizontal stop-dogs additionally dampen the impact noise of the already very quiet e-chains. 17dB(A) less noise than that of Series 4040C.
Two vertical and two horizontal stop-dogs per link provide more rigidity for the E4Q and a greater unsupported length or higher fill weight are possible. 20% more stability compared to the E4.1.
Crossbars (e-chain)/lid (e-tube) – the e-chain and e-tube can be opened and closed without any tools at all. Crossbars and lids/shelves lock in the side section for even greater holding forces. The e-chain/e-tube can be filled in considerably less time. 40% faster filling than E4.1.
Reduce weight – New findings have allowed material to be left out where it has no function with regard to the load on the e-chain . This approach has been taken inside, between the stop-dogs, and outside. Nature-inspired rounded shapes were used for the design. 10% less weight than E4.1.
