Pint-Sized Cable Chains

Small cable carriers are designed to handle applications with tight space restrictions and small bending radii.

The E2 Micro Series Energy Chains start with an inner height of 0.20 in., an inner width of 0.203 in., and a minimum bend radius of as low as 0.39 in. Chains are equipped with molded cross bars, or a zipper top which consists of linked lids that can be opened like a zipper and snapped shut without any special tools. The design simplifies cable installation and removal while encasing conduits entirely for protection from debris or contaminants.
