Questions and answers on our crane cables

To determine the best festoon cable for you, we need precise details of the usage area and other environmental influences. If you require resistance to chemicals, oils or lubricants, you need to consider whether to use suitable insulation and sheathing material. We also need to establish whether flat or round cables will be used; this is especially important when using festoon cable units at high traversing speeds.

To meet the complexity of various reeling medium-voltage trailing cables on the market and create a specific standard for short-term and recurrent aftersales requirements, we almost exclusively stock hybrid trailing cables, each with 12 different FO fibres, mainly in the combination 12 x 62.5/125 µ (multimode) + 12 x E9/125 µ (singlemode). If your crane equipment does not require fibre-optic cables, they are simply not connected during final assembly.

So we can offer the right reeling low- or medium-voltage cables as early as possible, the following technical information must be clarified beforehand, provided the monospiral cable reel already exists on the crane equipment:

  • Outer diameter

  • Weight

  • Travelling speed

  • Is the reel wheel welded or adjustable?

From spreader cables for mobile harbour cranes with special connectors from ODU and Harting, to preassembled shore-side trailing cables for various types of cruise, RoRo or container vessels, through to medium-voltage reeling cables, we offer all cables tailored to customer and project requirements through our extensive partner network of custom cable assemblers. Here, we benefit from over 50 years’ experience in the field of port and crane modernisation in our network. All cables and connectivity systems are tested and come with full documentation.

Our wide-ranging team of specialists can also install cables and wires professionally on site. Our cable repair service provides rapid assistance on site to remedy cable damage and restore low- and medium-voltage cables with integrated fibre optics – with a full 12-month warranty.

You often find that maintenance personnel only tend to focus on outdated or damaged crane cables as problems in this area are the easiest to spot. Often, though, it makes sense to look at the entire system, from the end termination point and the reeling cable to the reel and the slip ring. Only a perfectly coordinated system delivers the necessary durability and consistently minimises downtimes. Here, we are always available with our expertise – and will also gladly advise you on site at your terminals.
