Check Installation Space

Use igus System Drawings

Installation has to be done according to igus system drawings

b E-Chain has to be free movable along the entire travel length. Other obstacles or crane parts must not disturb operation area! wrong!

Support Structure for Guiding Trough

L-Profile oblong hole drillpattern c-profile Support structure has to be aligned and level wrong!

z = 2000 3 x5 L-profile Level the support structure y5 x5 wrong! Center line Crane rail = reference Level the L-profile Crane rail and support structure have to be aligned. wrong! wrong! right wrong!

x5 Crane rail

Center line

Check support strukture before trough installation. Necessary reworks to be corrected before next installation step.

Guiding Trough Installation

Prepare a spacer tool, to adjust the inner trough width. E-Chain outer width = Ba No gap = wrong!


No gap = wear on chain links. E-Chain is blocked. 2 +1mm Ba +4 Ba + 4 = L L L /2 Spacer tool Big gap = wear on chain links and cross bar.

2 +1mm

Big gap = wrong!


E-Chain Pre-Assembly
Check part no. on E-Chain, before assembly. For example: 5050C- 4040C- Series Chain s number 5050C.30.300.0 5050C 30 300 0
Series Number Width Radius of chain Colour

E-Chain assembly Lay the fixed point (part 3) into the trough and assemble part 2 until you reach the mounting end.

E-Chain Pre-Assembly
Make sure that fixed point position is according to igus drawings, relative to the travel stroke. Lay thee preassembled E-Chain into the guiding tough.

Check fixed point position relative to the travel stroke.


Pull Cables Into E-Chain

Cable arrangement has to be according to igus interior shelving drawing Possible instalation: Pull cables into E-Chain Possible faults: Corkscrew or Cable damage right wrong!


All crossbars snapped in? Any broken parts? right wrong!

Alternative instalation: Open the crossbars, lay the cables in the E-Chain and close it.

Check the interior separation of E-Chain. All seperators plumb and tight? right wrong!


Attach E-Chain
Leave a spare cable loop for cable adjustment at fixed point and moving end.

Level Moving End

Moving end has to be installed according to system drawing. Support plate has to be in level! Height according to drawing.

max. 3mm Spare cable min 0,5m h h h h

Make shure that fixed point is at correct position and fix it with allan screws (DIN 912 / EN ISO 7462).


for E4.80/5050C h= 242mm +10 for E4.56/4040C/400 h= 266mm +10


Installl Moving End

Flip chain radius, move it to the moving arm and fix it with allan screws (DIN 912 / EN ISO 7462).

Adjust Cables
Correct cable adjustment

Cable has to run slightly outside the centerline




Cable too tight

Cable too loose


Install Strain Relief

Install strain relief clambs at moving end and fixed point. Swing strain relief clamps in the c-rail and theighten the screw.

Check Installation Before First Movement

All screws in place and fixed Moving end height and with toque spanner E-Chain fixation OK?

Any obstacles / tools in the guiding trough?

All strain relief clamps installed

wrong! Check height

Cable arrangement OK?

Move the E-Chain slow and carefull to both end positions and check cable arrangement. Doublecheck after a few test cycles.
