  • Minimum bending radius
    7,5x cable Ø
  • Radiation resistance
    up to 20x106 cJ/kg (up to 20 Mrad)
Cable structure
  • Tinned copper conductor, to
    DIN VDE 0295 cl.5, fine wire,
    BS 6360 cl.5, IEC 60228 cl.5
  • Core insulation of rubber
    compound type GI1 to
    DIN VDE 0207 part 20
  • Core identification to DIN VDE 0293
    - up to 5 cores coloured
    - from 6 cores, black with continuous
    white numbering
  • Cores stranded (without elongated central
    core) with max. lay length of 8x Ø over the
    stranding layers
  • Textile tape
  • Textile braiding as protection against torsion,
    embedded in inner filling sheath
  • Outer sheath of neoprene
    compound type 5GM2 to
    DIN VDE 0207 part 21
  • Sheath colour: black
  • Designed and developed for horizontal
  • Permissible running speed up to
    max. 120 m/min
  • Polychloroprene-rubber (neoprene)-sheath,
    extremely cold resistant
  • Due to the neoprene outer sheath,
    the cables is resistant against ozone
    and radiation, oils, acids, fats, gazoline,
    solvents and chemicals
  • During the installation and operation the
    tensile stress on conductor may not increase
    15 N/mm²
  • Accelaration not more than 0,4 m/s²
  • During operation, 1-2 convolutions should
    remain on the operating drum
  • In case of high mechanical stress, especially
    of high dynamic tensile stress result high
    accelaration, the permissible stress must be
    defined in each case
  • Behaviour in fire
    to DIN VDE 0482-332-1-2
    DIN EN 60332-2-1, IEC 60332-1 (equivalent
    DIN VDE 0472 part 804 test method B)
  • Oil resistant acc. to
    DIN VDE 0473-811-404,DIN EN 60811-404
  • G = with green-yellow conductor
  • AWG sizes are approximate equivalent
    values. The actual cross section is in mm².
Trailing cables are used for high mechanical stress, especially for applications with frequent winding and unwinding with simultaneous tensile and torsional stress, for building machinery, conveyors, shifts and cranes. They are used as robust and all weather resistant cables of roughest operations in mining and in flexible handling equipment and railway motors. The cables are suitable for outdoor installation in dry, damp and wet places as well in open air. For applications which go beyond standard solutions we recommend that you fill out our especially developed questionnaire for reeling cables. Please read the installation instructions.
CE = Product conforms with Low-Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU.
