LEONI spiral cables have been specially developed for car transport vessels where the different decks are movable for the cars. Spiral cables are always used when the cable connection is exposed to extreme or predominantly irregular movements. And that is the case with this application. Spiralization allows extreme mechanical loads such as uneven tensile and torsional forces to be absorbed. In addition, the cables are specifically protected against electrical and mechanical influences by special insulation materials, banding for optimum sliding properties and corresponding shielding technologies.
Advantages of the spiral cable:
- small space requirement compared to classic connecting cables with the same length of use
- highest freedom of movement - due to the precise restoring force, the spiral cable always returns to its original state, even under constant load
- high mechanical and electrical load capacity
