Special Cables / Reeling Cables

TRATOSCOILFLEX, TRATOSCOILFLEX -K And TRATOSCOILFLEX-FO low voltage Lead free Control cables for gravity fed collector in basket DIN VDE 0298-4 for current carrying capacity for continuous operation (at 30C): 3 cores + earth conductor; is a TRATOS designed and manufactured flexible cable for basket applications on all kind of spreaders and grabbing machines for material handling. Another member of the TRATOSFLEX range of cables for powering and data transmission for moving applications. Its unique cable design focuses on tightening the internal structure to accommodate a 6 core group with Kevlar support and extra flexible conductor, granting the cable phenomenal strength and flexibility and reduced outer diameter, which prevents twisting and breakage and the elongation caused by the vertical payout and lasts longer under constant severe conditions for electrical feeding and communication for its correspondent equipment. TRATOSCOILFLEX also features an outer sheath black coloured of special polychloroprene compound Tratoscoilfex-OS, better than 5GM3 quality. Clockwise coiling is also recommended starting from the bottom of the basket. This design allows the cable to coil freely at even the most demanding sites with heavy winds and at higher exiting speeds. This cable was one of the first of its type to be lead free, which makes it environmentally friendly in both manufacturing and use.

Today, TRATOSFLEX cables are installed at more than 300 ports & terminals worldwide at the most demanding applications for prestigious global operators, including manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic yards. On rated voltage 300/500 V, TRATOSCOILFLEX is suitable for any kind of basket application, being most commonly found on RTGs (Rubber Tyred Gantry), RMG (Rail Mounted Gantry) and shorter type of STS (feeder or Panamax below) and certain Ship Unloaders (SU). Its Fiber Optic included TRATOSCOILFEX FO version is well known and used on applications where the spreaders features functions related with cameras or sensors, for a more complex communication with the spreader; frequently related with automation and safety features. Is usually on duty on Cranes type ASC (Automatic Stacking Cranes) , A-RTG (Automated Rubber Tyred Gantry) or ARMG (Automatic Rail Mounted Gantry). It is also in use on basket applications at shipyard Cranes, portal cranes or shorter Ship Unloaders (SU), the cable can feed all kind of material grabbing machinery such as various types of spreaders (including fully electric), grabs or hooks used for container, bulk, steel or various materials. In addition TRATOSCOILFEX-K version can perform and coil even at lowest existing operational temperatures.
