TECHNICAL.

THERMO SWITCHES – WHEN AND WHY?

Our equipped cable drums are all have a thermal switch serving as a protection device in the event of overheating. If the cable drum becomes too hot during use, e.g. because the cable has not been completely unwound, the thermo switch triggers and switches off the power automatically. After the drum has cooled down, the thermo switch can be reset at the push of a button and the drum is ready for use again.

WHAT IS A PRCD-S?

A PRCD-S or SPE-PRCD is a special mobile protective device with protective conductor detection or protective conductor monitoring. When plugged into a socket outlet with an unknown protective measure, an automatic routine check is performed. If the mains supply is correct the device is enabled. The device then assumes the function of a residual current circuit breaker (tripping value 30mA) with constant protective conductor monitoring.

WHAT IS AN FI SWITCH?

An earth-leakage circuit breaker or RCD in short, is an earth-leakage current protection device that can be found in almost every distribution and serves as personal protection. If a live line is touched by a person, a so-called residual current flows through it. The residual current circuit breaker detects this and disconnects all conductors in the circuit from the mains supply.

ARE YOUR DRUMS ALSO AVAILABLE AS EMPTY DRUMS?

(Almost) all our cable reels and automatic cable reels are also available without cable for self-assembly.

FREE CABLE PRINTING ON H07BQ-F CABLES – THEFT PROTECTION AND INDIVIDUALITY

On request you can have your cable (only possible with H07BQ-F cables) printed free of charge. Up to 240 characters with constant repetition of the text (upper and lower case as well as printable numbers) can be printed on the cable.
