1. Universal connection: various mounting options with and without strain relief 2. Easy openable: Openable along the inner or outer radius from the side or from above 3. Cable-friendly: very smooth contours ensure the longest cable life 4. More cost-effective: E2.1 is lighter and offers more inner height with the same outer dimensions as the E2/000 5. Silent operation: optimised, integrated "brake" reduces noise 6. Long service life: due to integrated gliding surfaces even on long travels/gliding applications
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 35 mm (with 2.0 kg/m fill weight), this should be taken into account for all application types.Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Option 1: Separators
Option 2: Separators
Option 1 - Separators Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section as interior separation for the e-chain® - As standard, separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link! 38.1 - Standard separator, wide baseseparator, wide base for maximum holding force and secure standing. 38.2 - separator, narrow topWide base on one side for high holding force, narrow on opposite side for easy cable fitting. 38.3 - Separator, narrowseparator with narrow base for a large number of thin cables side by side. Saves space in e-chains®. E2.38.5 - Notch separator with integrated grid structure for exact positioning. Recommended for side-mounted applications. 2300.X Horizontal interior separation Locks securely into separators at both ends, giving a fixed width. Can be used as full-width shelf for integrated interior separation or as partial shelf for modular shelving.
Option 2 - Separators Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section as interior separation for the e-chain® - As standard, separators should be fitted every 2nd chain link! In order to fill e-chains® more easily and efficiently, these separators can be split in the middle. This allows easier access "from above" to middle shelf partitions permitting faster filling with cables. Fast assembly and easy retrofit. 2 types available: with wide or narrow top. 38.H.1 - Split separator, wide base/top 38.H.1 - Split separator, narrow top 38.12 - Lean separatorNew design allows extremely fast fitting of shelves in several layers, which significantly reduces harnessing time. Enables extremely fast replacement of individual cables in very full e-chains®.
