Igus has introduced the e-loop energy chain for safe cable management on top drives for deep drilling rigs. The new modular system, which is made of high-performance plastic, ensures a defined minimum bend radius of the cables and withstands adverse weather conditions, as well as vibration and shock. In addition to use on deep drilling rigs, the corrosion-resistant e-loop is suitable for a range of suspended applications in the offshore industry, as well as construction machinery, shore power and wind turbines.
The e-loop is a round three-dimensional modular system that can move cables with a defined bend radius and provides strain relief. The modular energy chain can be opened from the outside and filled at any time.
