PVC type of flat cables are used mainly as trailing cable for crane installations, floor conveyer systems and shelf control units.
Cables reels with flat cables must be transported in standing position on the flange. A bending flexibility can be achieved on a plane surface. For this purpose, the corresponding fitting instructions should be followed.
- Put the cable trolly on the guiding rail or upon carrier beam and push them together at the starting point. The distance between the bedding surface of two cable trollys must be wider than the double thickness of a cable-packet.
- During the packeting performance, it must be started with the smaller cross section which lays on the bedding surface and will be builded successively so that the biggest cross section is laying on the top.
- Further, be careful of a symmetrical load distribution.
- In case of multicore flat cables with small cross section, smaller than 2,5 mm², is very critical due to its low tensile stress. In such case, you should add 10% reserve wire for calculation.
