What is a Cable Festoon System?
Festoon systems are the optimum mobile supports for electrical cables or pneumatic and hydraulic lines. It is a traditional system for energy transmission with the use of a cable. It allows the cable to move along with the trolley, hoist, or any other mobile equipment without entangling. Cable festoon systems are available in a variety of configurations and sizes to handle flat or round hoses and cables.
The key application of this system is specifically for mobile power consumers such as car wash systems, monorail, crane, machine tools, electric hoist, plating lines, to name a few. Some of the advantages of the cable festoon system include—
- It is safe
- It is versatile
- It is easy to install
Depending on the types of hoses and cables they are shaping, festoon systems usually come with different clamps or clips. In a standard festoon system, the cables at one non-moving end are secured using an end clamp, a control unit that moves hither and thither either manually or is operated using a machine. It is kept secure during the machine’s operation through a series of reels or trolleys that support the moving cables.
The range of motion, load and speed make the festoon system unique. It is often used to make sure that machines in motion persist to accept electrification and hydraulic fluid or compressed air during operation. To prevent a pinched air hose or cable from shutting down the machinery, a cable support system is often used for gantry cranes or conveyor machinery.
Cable festoon systems are often used for lighting systems, which is chiefly helpful for lighting display cases and bookshelves. Cable festoon system manufacturers can design cable festoon track systems that can be used even in corrosive or harsh environments. Stainless steel is used for the track system, and aluminum, galvanized steel or stainless less for the carriers to give corrosion resistance even in severe acidic environments.
