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)
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®.
80% faster strain relief for different cable types in different chambers, completely flexible, with strong holding force and easy assembly. Simply insert cables and hoses into the honeycomb and close.
Optimal igus® Chainfix housing with reduced height
Long service life for dynamic applications thanks to improved clamping elements
Integration with KMA mounting brackets - saves both time and space during installation and available for complete systems with cables and strain relief. Improved housing foot clamp for easy fit into Cprofile
Black housing and setscrews for attractive appearance
Setscrews, tightened with Allen wrench, for easy installation.
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
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.
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
Integration into the Cprofile of KMA (polymer/metal mounting brackets)
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
Can be integrated in mounting bracket
Strainrelief separator can be positioned as required
Double strain relief possible
Easy installation, cost-effective
