Strain reliefs

Strain relief for electrical cables

Strain relief can consist of standard elements or can be custom-made. For most applications, our standard range of C profiles in the mounting bracket and the space-saving "chainfix" clamp can be used, or a simple strain relief carried out using tie wrap plates and cable ties. The cables should be ideally fixed with strain relief on both ends of the e-chain®. (in a few instances, strain relief at the moving end of the e-chain® is sufficient - please consult igus® for these cases)

Minimum gap of the strain relief and the beginning of the bending radius

Tests on our premises and in field applications have shown strain relief located at the last bending point of the e-chain® has no influence over the durability of igus® chainflex® cables. It is possible, therefore, to integrate the strain relief with the mounting bracket. This space-saving option for strain relief is offered by igus® for almost all e-chains®.

chainflex® cables can be directly strain-relieved in the mounting bracket (minimum gap to the last curved e-chain® link is not necessary)!

Clamp Housings

Chainfix clip - modular snap-on strain relief device

Chainfix clip is a series of clamps and bottom parts made of plastic for cable diameters ranging from 4 mm to 24 mm. Chainfix Clip is available for C-profiles, also suitable for assembly in the KMA mounting brackets and clip-on strain relief for cross bars. Features:

Quick assembly without any tools

2 and 3 layers on top of one another possible

Each layer can be detached and changed later on

High tensile forces in case of single-layer installation, decreasing with the number of layers

Tiewrap plates with clip-on connection for the C-profile

The plates 3050.ZC and 3075.ZC can be clipped directly into the C-profile without bolts or any extra hardware. Clip-on tiewrap plates can be released and repositioned with just a screwdriver used as a lever.

Snap-on tiewrap plate for the C-profile

Tiewrap plates as individual parts

The tiewrap plate is directly located on the mounting bracket, to which cables and hoses can be fastened with cable ties. Advantages:

Time saving through clip on With the screwing of the mounting brackets, the strain relief tiewrap plates are also mounted

Longer service life for cables

Space-saving design

Integration into the Cprofile of KMA (polymer/metal mounting brackets)

Tiewrap clamps

Strain relief nugget - Chainfix: nugget for C-profile and top-hat rail

Version 1: Simple and universal fastening for cables of Ø 20 mm and Ø 30 mm diameter

Variant 2: Fastening through clipping onto standard top hat rail

Nifty helper for electrical fitters in mechanical engineering

Accessory for all KMAs with integrated C-profile

Easy to mount, without any screws and tools

Variably adjustable filling

Very low space requirement

Simple strain relief of preassembled cable ties
