Energy chain specialist igus has unveiled its latest accessory for e-chains and e-tubes, the CFV strain relief element. This offers the chance to strain relieve cables outside of the chain cross section, even in enclosed energy tubes. The CVF ensures that cables within the moving e-chain do not move around when moving and with a stepped design to secure cables of different diameters, it ensures simple installation when strain relieving several cables.
Thanks to its simple quick-clip base design, the CFV can easily be installed onto the “C” profiles of the e-chain mounting brackets, but can also be used on top-hat rails for static applications in control panels and cabinets. The CFV comes in three sizes for e-chains with inner heights of 31mm, 35-42mm or 56-80mm.
