Prysmian PROTOLON (FL) LWL (N)TSFLCGEWOEU

Prysmian Protolon FL LWL CableFlat Medium Voltage Reeling Cable With Integrated Fibre Optics

Flexible reeling cable, for high mechanical stresses, e.g. dynamic tensile loads, multiple changes of direction within one plane, running over rollers. Mainly for mobile equipment, e.g. container cranes, cranes, large mobile equipment and excavators. Available across the UK and for export around the world it complies with the relevant standards DIN VDE 0250, Part 813.
