Energy Supply - E-Chains®

igus® Energy Chain Systems or the-chains as it is popularly known is used for guidance and protection for moving cables are innovative products that can be assembled quickly. Energy chains or drag chains as called by many offer exceptional lifetimes in adverse conditions while effectively guiding and protecting the moving cables, hoses and other media. These cable carriers have multitude of possiblities in terms of movement or travel strokes possible. High levels of accleration can be achieved by these drag chains. Simple assembly of modular system on site and rapid retrofitting of cables is possible with these cable carrier system. igus® energy chains or drag chains accommodate very high dynamic loads and meet stringent service life along with all requisite safety considerations and certifications. .
These drag chains are RoHS compliant.
