THE igus energy E2/000 energy chain, available from Treotham Trading , has various functions to provide optimum protection for cables and hoses without compromising flexibility in the day-to-day movement of cables.
The system can be opened up in the inner or outer radius, or 'half' the energy tube can be opened up in the inner radius and completely closed in the outer radius.
This is particularly useful in the field of machine and plant engineering where high speeds are encountered, sophisticated energy is used alongside data, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment.
A break-proof opening mechanism can be used to open up the system from either the right or left hand sides.
Opening clips can also be swung out more than 180º to provide undisturbed access to the energy supply system.
Not only is the energy system easy to insert, it remains firmly seated when the energy chain has been opened.
Openable by hand or by screwdriver, the igus E2/000 has a new type of mechanism allowing a split second closing operation and a secure fit without using any additional locking devices - it is simply locked down by thumb pressure.
Integrated fixed or pivoting connecting mounting brackets simplify on-site installation.
