Horizontal Drive Unit 90 Degree EL-2190-O or I
The 90 degree and 180 degree Horizontal Drives are desirable in applications where production requirements permit the use of these units. Closely spaced wide loads can collide or entangle when traveling around 90 degree or 180 degree horizontal drive configuration. In applications where this is not a problem, two characteristics of the Horizontal Drives make these drives generally preferred to the inline Vertical Drives.
First, the horizontal drives have greater chain wrap than vertical drives.
Second, the horizontal sprocket employed in the horizontal drives support the E-Trac Lite chain on the horizontal plane - a higher level of support than is provided by the Inlive Vertical Drive.
These drives save you the cost of either the 90 degree or 180 degree curve. The 90 degree and 180 degree Horizontal Drives are available with three phase 3/4 HP motors (600 lb. chain pull).
Stock single phase motors in 3/4 HP are also available and special motors can be fitted when required.
Horizontal Drives have a 2.8 to 1 speed variation ratio. These drives are equipped with a safety overload torque clutch. Dual drives and take-ups are recommended on any system with a calculated chain pull over 600 lbs., or a linear length of over 500 ft.
