Spring cable reels

Third Quarter 2019 Other technologies

The SR-Express range from Powermite, which forms part of Conductix-Wampfler’s global SR series of spring cable reels, is engineered to meet the energy and data supply requirements of virtually any moving machinery, from overhead bridge cranes, gantries and mobile tables to aerial ladders, lifts, elevators and elevated work platforms.

All components, from the cables and cable drum to the slip rings, springs and mounting flange, are manufactured from the best and most durable materials to ensure optimum operational efficiency over a long life cycle. The flank edge has optimises cable arrangement during winding, ensuring operator safety. With winding diameters ranging from 170 to 400 mm, the cable drum is fitted with sealed ball bearings and is lubricated for life.

The USR heat-resistant slip rings reduce maintenance. For optimal access to connection, the slip rings are located in an impact-resistant housing outside the cable drum. The rugged and versatile IP65 rated range is protected against dust and water ingress and is able to withstand an impact of 20 joules. The units continue to deliver optimum performance even in the most stringent of conditions, with an ambient temperature range of -20 up to 60°C for the standard E0 environmental specification and as low as -40°C for the E1 specification.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, the SR-Express spring cable reels are supplied with the cable already installed and connected to the slip rings so that it is ready for use, keeping downtime to a minimum.
