Cable Festooning Systems
C - Rail system as a whole is a festooning system for smooth management of cables carrying high current,used in cranes, hoists and any other industrial mobile equipment. This type of festooning system comes in various types and sizes.
200+ businesses use Anand C Rail & C Track Festooning Systems for Cranes today!
Ease Of Cable Management
They are used to organize the cables for ease of management and safety. The whole system is made up of many parts such as an extruded or formed profile with a cross Section in the shape of the letter C, clamps, trolleys & supports.
Without proper management, cables can become an entangled mess. This can lead to loss of production time, safety hazards, accidents ,money and time.Due to this the cables can also disconnect and cause a short circuit in an industrial environment.A detailed planning of cables leads to long life of the equipment, significantly reduce safety hazards & good maintenance and serviceability of the connected equipment.Hence, for a proper management of cable, C Rail Festoons are used as one of the cable management systems.
Design of C Track Festooning System.
The C Track is designed in such a way that the small trolleys can move freely on the inside of the C track while carrying the cables.This kind of a cable management system allows the operator to move the cables from one end of the C track to another end exactly how a curtains roller works in our homes.This helps in improving the strength, reliability and performance of the overall product.
Length of the Festooning system
C tracks come in prefabricated lengths of 4 meters each. Depending on the length of the festooning system required, the C tracks can be joined together with the help of joints . To determine the length of the cable , first we need to know the length of the C track. Then we calculate the total required Sag of the cable when two cable trolleys touch each other.
C Track Festooning System Detailed Description
A Cable Trolley is required for each flat cable loop between the End Clamp and Tow Trolley. Stainless steel trolleys have stainless steel body/saddle and stainless steel sealed rollers and hardware.
One Tow Trolley is required for each track run. The unit has an opening in the body to accommodate the Tow Bar. Stainless steel trolleys have stainless steel body / saddle and stainless steel sealed rollers and hardware.
A Fixed Trolley is required at one between the End Clamp and cable trolley. This prevents the cable trolleys to move outside the C-Track. Stainless steel trolleys have stainless steel body/saddle and stainless steel sealed rollers and hardware.
This bracket mounts to Cross Arm Support Channels at two points to hang the C-Track. The clamping action of the support bracket eliminates the need for a separate anchor.
Cross Arm Support Channels are mounted perpendicular to the I-beam or girder every 1.5 meter to support the main C-track channel. Made from heavy channel for added rigidity.
The bolted Track Joint securely connects track sections together end-to-end. One required at each track joint. Includes four bolts, lock washers, and nuts.
