Applications Overview

As a control cable, the YSLTOE-J is designed specifically to be integrated with high-speed container cranes using gravity-feed collector buckets. It is also referred to as a spreader cable, and works to control the locking mechanisms of the buckets. These container cranes are commonly used in opencast mining but variations also operate in ship-to-shore marine loading where they may be more commonly referred to as gantry cranes. As a control cable, it regulates the operation and transmits signal.

The YSLTOE is sheathed with Halogen-free Polyurethane (PUR) to offer robust protection from environmental elements, whilst the construction sees central support fillers of Kevlar and lead rope. It should be noted that whilst the YSLTOE emits no toxic gases in the event of a fire, the PUR remains a flammable material and any use within buildings should be considered.

The control cable can operate under a maximum tensile load of 13000 Newtons per mm2 of the conductor cross-sectional area, and a maximum working speed of 160m per minute.

The YSLTOE is just one of the portfolio of crane cables capable of working under heavy mechanical stresses. This control cable may be used in conjunction with NSHTOU drum reeling cable to provide power and control to dynamic static equipment.
