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
