Designed for use in continuous extreme flexing applications including hoists, cranes, robots, conveyors, telescoping jetways and other systems where high flexibility and durability is critical. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, all our flat festoon cables are UL-listed and CSA-certified. Flat festoon cables get their odd name from a type of hanging garland because they typically hang below telescoping arms or sliding trolleys. Their flat construction reduces the likelihood of coiling or tangling as moving parts expand and contract. Each cable is comprised of soft-drawn uncoated copper conductors which are color-coded in flame and oil-resistant PVC insulation, as well as a tough PVC jacket. We Are Open For Business!
On festoon systems, cables hang free and loose, exposed to the wind and weather. Unprotected, they can swing freely and become tangled, leading to costly maintenance efforts. Festoons typically require regular maintenance operations to lubricate the cable trolleys, and long travels can require motor and control systems. Benefits: Essentially maintenance free operation Decreased mechanical stress on cables No additional motors or controls required for long travels Roller chains allow for a significant reduction in required drive force Approx.
Festoon cable is a flat portable cord designed for power and control applications used in cranes and festoon cable systems. These Flat Festoon cables are also commonly used where space is at a premium or when extreme flexing is a requirement. Most commonly available with a yellow or black jacket, other options include PVC or Neoprene for insulation and jacketing. If standard flat Festoon Cable specifications don't meet your needs, Allied Wire can design a custom festoon cable that matches your company's unique needs.
Wire and Cable Strippers - companies Cable and wire strippers are devices used to remove sections of insulation from underlying wires and prepare cables for installation. Stripping is an important process and allows the conductor to be terminated or spliced. Strippers are usually Search by Specification Learn More.
