TRATOS®MTO-RF HighVision REFLECTIVE + FLUORESCENT is a High Visibility electric cable developed as an innovative solution to the problem of accidental damage to cables used in the mining industry.
Reflective & Fluorescent Mining Cables
Tratos has developed an innovative solution for the mining industry. Tratos MTO-RF – HighVision is a High Visibility cable that is used to power up machines like excavators shovels and draglines. It ensures the highest level of safety and productivity of your mining operation.
Tratos recognise that the conditions under which electric cables must operate in the mining industry are extremely severe, the premature failure of an electric cable can be both expensive and hazardous. It is therefore essential that a high level of safety be achieved. Reduced accidental damage means increased safety, and an extended working life thus increasing the efficiency and productivity of your operation by reducing expensive downtime.
Tratos MTO-RF is a High Visibility cable intended to increase the nighttime visibility of trailing cables used to supply power to items of large mining machinery with two separate and complementary solutions:
- R for Reflective. The Reflective stripe will reflect any even small source of light, like the car headlights. or even the light of your smartphone. Using a similar principle to the High Visibility Jackets
- F for Fluorescent. The Fluorescent compound maintains its emission of fluorescent light for up to 8 hours, without the need for any type of source of light and without the need to be powered up or external costly devices to work… just the compound itself. This guarantees also the durability of its property for a long time without any maintenance in harsh environments such as open cast mines.
Tratos MTO-RF minimises the hazard to people and damage to equipment or even damage to the electrical system of the mine without using any active illumination techniques which need to be powered or high costly solutions with fibre optics. But with a patent technology applied inside the compound itself will keep the cable highly visible during complete darkness.
Tratos MTO-RF has a Medium Voltage flexible construction based on EPR insulation. This compound has been patented by Tratos and used in other several applications where safety is paramount.
