igus e-spool Features & Benefits
The igus e-spool is a cable drum without a slip ring. It allows you to route many different cables in confined spaces.
One unique feature of the e-spool (iGus) is that it combines two different energy supply systems.
The four main features/benefits of the igus e-spool are:
- Variable use (energy supply is possible in all directions - horizontal, vertical, diagonal)
- Cost effective (twister band enables rotary movement)
- Variable energy supply (one system used for the guidance of all media)
- Space saving (paths remain free when the e-chain is rolled into the home position)
The igus e-spool also allows different media and diameters in one drum and there is no tensile load of the cables.
Cable diameters are available up to 17mm, cables can be retroactively added or changed and it has a maximum deployment and retract speed of 1m/s.
The e-spool can be used as an alternative to zig-zag solutions and is suitable for use in telescopic applications and lighting & stage equipment.
