Introducing e-skin

Post navigation

Recently we have extended our range of energy supply systems, so let us introduce e-skin.

e-skin is a lightweight, versatile alternative to conventional corrugated tubes. With it’s easy to open hose making it suitable for a variety of delicate applications, where demands on the energy supply systems are not too high.

 

Our e-chain director Justin Leonard says “Comprising an upper and lower shell, which when fitted together is completely closed, the e-skin is simple to open and close, which is just one of the many advantages e-skin has to offer compared with corrugated tubes.”

Due to e-skins abrasion resistance and water and dust-proof offering it is also clean room compatible in accordance with IPA Class 1, and ideal for clean room appliances. It has a defined movement direction and can also support itself. It can therefore be used as a horizontal energy supply for short unsupported lengths. Also, the modular tube can be extended and offers more space than round corrugated tubes, due to its oval design. The interior separation modules also enable cable-friendly cable guiding.

With its simple opening mechanism, it allows trouble free maintenance and inspection of the cables inside, and can be tailored to suit an individual application and is available is a variety of different materials and colours.
