What should be considered in energy supply for use outdoors?

Outdoor use is generally uncritical for energy supply systems. Energy chains are very tough and withstand extreme temperatures below freezing. Each energy chain is tested in the igus in-house test laboratory in a refrigerated container at -40 degrees Celsius and on an outdoor test track under real conditions. For special requirements, energy chains are also available in closed systems with a canopy or enclosure. For example, the use of the igus basic flizz system makes sense in sluice gates or sewage treatment plants.
