How to improve vertical cable management using energy chain guide troughs

Written by: igus | Published:

In this week’s video, find out about the new guidelok slimline P.S energy chain guide trough for vertical applications, ideal for narrow applications, where space is limited. Vertical applications, including materials handling and access, storage and retrieval systems, as well as elevators, cranes and hoists, often require such a cable management solution.

The guidelok energy chain guide trough system from motion plastics specialist, igus provides an elegant and effective solution, with fast and easy assembly and installation, courtesy of clip-on guide rails, coupled with easy access for servicing. Reliable, safe guidance of energy, data and all media is ensured, preventing the energy chain from swaying or swinging, and its lightweight all-plastic design also substantially reduces noise and costs.

The standard guidelok slimline P requires that the moving arm reach the chain from the side and requires 100mm of additional mounting space. For narrow aisles and environments where this is not possible, the new guidelok slimline P.S is designed so that the moving arm reaches around the back of the energy chain – providing a solution for demanding applications where installation space is at a premium.
