The largest variant, with a diameter of 16.93" (430mm), was added to the two existing series on the basis of a customer application. Besides the implemented or designed applications presented here, there are many other ideas for using the e-loop ® as an energy and data supply system outdoors and under adverse conditions. For igus ® , the e-loop ® example shows that it's worthwhile to carry out intensive development work, even for niche markets. If the design is mature and the product proves itself, additional areas of application can be opened up. With the e-loop ® , the new series could establish itself as the standard solution for heavy-duty applications in the broad e-chain system ® product range from igus ® . This is not surprising because deep drilling rigs are not the only systems that need their energy supply to be extremely resistant to wind, shocks, impacts, and tensile forces. The basic e-loop ® design–cable guide as strain relief, robust chain that can move in multiple dimensions, bolted chain links and protectors on the outer jacket–fits this application profile and is therefore suitable for a wide variety of areas of use.
