Tratos-MTO-RF - Highvision - Reflective Mining CableReflective & Fluorescent Mining Cables

Tratos has developed an innovative Reflective Mining Cable. A 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 in 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 - Highvision - Fluorescent Mining CableTratos 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 on the cable 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 also guarantees the durability of its property for a long time without any maintenance in harsh environments such as open-cast mines. 

Tratos MTO-RF HighVision minimises the hazard to people, damage to equipment, or even damage to the mine’s electrical system without using any active illumination techniques that need to be powered or costly solutions with fibre optics. However, with patent technology applied inside the compound itself, the cable will remain highly visible during complete darkness.
Tratos MTO-RF HighVision is suitable as an opencast mining cable, but it is also suitable for tunnelling applications or any other application where the cable’s visibility is paramount.

Tratos MTO-RF has a Medium-Voltage flexible construction based on EPR insulation. Tratos has patented this compound, which is also used in several other applications where safety is essential.

Tratos cable with Reflective and Fluorescent Compound has been patented by Tratos and used in several other applications where safety is paramount.
