TRATOSFIBRE DB is a TRATOS designed and manufactured flexible low fibre optic cable, mainly used on festoon systems on all kind of cranes for material handling, as a response to the need of cables with reduced dimension cable laid on festooning specially recommended for port applications. 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, granting the cable a phenomenal strength and flexibility and reduced outer diameter, which prevents breakage and elongation and lasts longer under constant severe conditions for communication for its correspondent equipment. TRATOSFIBRE DB also features the outer sheath black colour special compound TRATOSFIBRE DB OS, antitorsional protection and centre support.

The cable can include a variety of fibres inside, multimode (62/125) or monomode (9/125) , being 24 FO the TRATOS standard that can be offered also on 6, 12 or 18FO.

Today TRATOSFLEX cables are installed on more than 300 ports & terminals worldwide at the most demanding applications for prestigious global operators, including manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic yards. Its unique construction and materials make these cable suitable for any kind of festoon application. From festoon systems on smaller yard cranes, type RTG (Rubber Tyred Gantry), RMG (Rail Mounted Gantry) or ASC (Automatic Stacking Crane); to the larger festoon system used in Ship unloaders and STS cranes (Ship to Shore) including high speed applications and motorised festoons on speeds up to 240 mpm. TRATOSFIBRE DB can also be found outside festoon applications on different applications, where FO communication is required through a cable under severe conditions or stresses, where high mechanical resistance is needed.
