- 3.5 times higher force absorption than standard clamps
- Painted steel or stainless steel
- For two different C rail sizes
- CFX standard clamps with normal base and CFXL clamps with wide base for increased holding force available
The principle of clamps has proven very successful as strain relief for igus® e-chain systems®. Clamps are a suitable means of strain relief for all e-chains® with KMA mounting bracket and C-rails option.

igus® Chainfix reduces the overall height due to optimum housing height
Long service life for dynamic applications due to improved pressure elements
Integratable in KMA mounting bracket, by which:
- Space- and time-saving installation
- Delivery of complete systems with cables and mounted strain relief possible
Improved base for better mounting on the C profile
Good readability of part number and marking of the correct installation direction
Good visual effects due to black housing body and black threaded setscrews
Easy to assemble due to set screws screwed in with hexagon socket
The long load-bearing surface of the pressure elements improves the stability of the clamp.
The high rigidity of the pressure elements remarkably increases the operational safety.
Integrated ribs on the pressure elements prevent the cable from slipping out of the strain relief.

Chainfix offers reduced installation height through set screw and optimal housing height
When the e-chain® glides on itself in long travels, the screwheads of the strain relief need to have a minimum distance of 10 mm to the upper edge of the e-chains® at the fixed end. This restriction means that it may not be possible to use all strain relief elements here at the fixed end of long travel e-chains®. Our clamps with threaded screws specifically designed for low installation height, reduce the installation height by up to 15 mm compared to conventional clamps. For unsupported e-chains® strain relief elements can be safely used.

The cables should be ideally fixed on both ends of the e-chains®. In any case they have to be fixed to the moving end of the e-chains®!
In the application of chainfix clamps on C profiles in the mounting bracket for Series 280, 2828, 290, 2928, R770, R7728, a shortened mating trough has to be used.
