What should I consider in energy chains for circular motions?
Supplying power, data, fibre optics, air, water and oil to rotating applications is a major challenge for machinery designers. Energy chains offer the most universal and modular solution, with a single system for all energy, data and media.
Pay attention to the correct filling of the energy chain
Pay attention to the correct bend radii
Pay attention to proper strain relief
Pay attention to the correct installation position
Correct dimensioning of the energy chain system
Selection of the matching guide trough
Pay attention to the secure guidance of the e-chain
Pay attention to external influences
Integration of the rotating energy supply into the overall system
