1.1.2 BS/DIN Roller Chain
Transmission: General usage
BS/DIN power transmission chains are regulated by international standards (ISO 606B) and are used primarily in Europe. In Japan and the United States, BS/DIN chains are used in transmission equipment imported from European countries or for licensed production.
Selection and Handling
Compared to the same-sized ANSI Roller Chains, the power ratings of BS/DIN chains in drive applications (tent curve) are a little lower (Table 1.1).
