In a video from igus, find out about the new guidelok slimline P.S energy chain guide trough for vertical applications, well suited 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 system.

Vertical cable management using igus energy chain guide troughsThe guidelok energy chain guide trough system provides an elegant and effective option, 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 an option for demanding applications where installation space is at a premium.
