Option 1: Standard
Option 2: Standard
Standard 01 As standard, igus® separators are mounted every second chain link. 48.1 standard – for all uses Separator, wide base for maximum holding strength and stability in e-chains® 48.3 For many thin cables Separator with narrow base for many thin cables fitted side by side. Space-saving, secure state – for e-chains®. 3200.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.
Standard 02 As standard, igus® separators are mounted every second chain link. 48.2 Faster cable installation Secure seating on one side, with a wide base, opposite side narrow for easy cable installation (easily clamped). 48.5 – Locks in securely in 5mm increments Notch separator for notched crossbar with scaling. Can be positioned precisely. Recommended for side-mounted applications. 3200.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 thorough interior separation or for modular shelving in three levels.

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super-aluminium" trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® glide on each other). The basic "Super-aluminium" trough is available in simple, cost-effective "basic designs" and can be expanded for sophisticated plant construction. This universal usability makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
