CABLE REELS WITHOUT SLIP RINGS FOR LIGHTING AND MARINE INDUSTRIES

Igus has designed two new cable reels without slip rings for energy chains, replacing the Jacob’s ladder on lighting bars. These include the light and compact e-spool mini and the motorised e-spool power for extension lengths from 2 to 25m.

The space-saving e-spool is suitable for many applications from stage lighting to marine industries. It is ideal for suspending lighting and speaker trusses. Fibre-optic, data, energy or media cables can be guided together in one system, with continuous end-to-end connection. The energy chain rolls and unrolls with an igus twisterband, so that no slip rings are required.

The e-spool mini is for extremely small installation spaces and short extension lengths up to 2m. It is very lightweight with an aluminium structure. An extension and retraction speed of 1m/s is possible. Igus provides chainflex cables that are specially designed for use in energy chains; these offer the perfect transmission of data, energy and media, as well as ensuring a long service life.

The e-spool power is for extreme conditions and can be used for extension lengths up to 25m. Unlike other e-spools that use a return spring, the e-spool power uses a motor to offer a much longer service life. It comes with a motor and control unit and is suitable for outdoor use below 0°C. It is corrosion free so is suitable for even the harshest conditions at sea.

Igus offers 362 different cables with the DNV-GL offshore approval required for these rugged applications.
