igus® shore power e-spool® - the slipring-free cable management system

The system is installed on the vessel or terminal and supplies power to vessels while at berth. The igus® shore power e-spool® is a motorized cable reel for unwinding 1-4 cables that are suitable for use in high or low voltage shore power connections.  The rotary motion of the e-spool® is achieved with a twisterchain module instead of using a slip ring to allow a continuous cable run throughout the system. This module will accommodate up to 10 turns of the cable reel while allowing the single core cables (power, control, fiber optic) to run uninterrupted from the cabinet to a certified junction box inside the e-spool®.  The system is preferably installed in a container to withstand demanding weather conditions, vibrations and the working environment.
