How energy chain systems are proven reliable for long travels

For operators of sewage plants, waste incineration plants, cranes, power plants or mines, one of the greatest challenges is to guide power, data and hydraulics safely on long travels. Conventional energy supply systems, including motor cable drums, busbars and festoons, have their limitations, particularly when operating at high speeds with a heavy fill weight. An alternative is to use energy chain systems from igus, which are tested over long distances at its automated test facility.
