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.
