RHEYFIRM®(RTS) (N)TSCGEWTOEUS OFE

Reeling CableReeling Cables with integrated Optical Fibers 1.8/3 (3.6) kV up to 18/30 (36) kV

Applications

Flexible reeling cable for energy supply and data transmission. Especially for high and extreme mechanical stress, e.g. torsional stress and high reeling speed. For deflection into different planes. Also usable for festoon systems, open-cast and underground mining.

Design

Main applications: Ship to Shore Cranes (STS), Rail Mounted Gantry Cranes (RMG), Ship Unloader, Stacker Reclaimer and other heavy mobile equipment.
