Energy and Data Transmission Systems for Mining Equipment
Conductix-Wampfler is a leading provider of energy, data and media transfer systems for mobile applications, supplying cable and hose reels, festoon systems, energy guiding chains, and slip rings / rotary joints for mining applications.
The mining and bulk materials handling team offers solutions to ensure equipment keeps running in the demanding mining sector.
Energy supply and data transmission within the mining sector
Conductix-Wampfler has a broad portfolio of energy supply and data transmission products.
The company’s motor-driven reeling systems, festoon systems and energy guiding chains, handle cables and hoses operate safely and efficiently under even the most demanding of conditions.
Conductix-Wampfler conductor rail systems and slip ring assemblies provide robust alternatives when applications demand an alternative approach. All products are manufactured and tested to high standards, with facilities certified under ISO 9001:2008.
Systems are engineered to meet the specifications of the customer’s equipment, and designed and built to withstand the challenging operating conditions in mines, bulk storage facilities, and bulk terminals.
Motor driven cable and hose reels
Power, control and fibre-optic cables and hoses for dust suppression water are vulnerable in mining stockyard environments. During long gantry travel distances, the company aims to provide accurate and predictable behaviour for reeling systems, protecting cables or hoses.
A range of drive, spool and control options are available to suit client applications, the environment and individual preferences, with reeling lengths of up to 2,000m as standard (longer upon request), current / voltage ratings up to 500A/36kV, and ingress protection up to IP67.
Festoon and cable trolley systems
Configurable to most beam sizes and styles, parallel or taper flange, and available with a wide range of roller types and diameters to suit a variety of requirements, multiple tiers of large cable / hose packages, rail / beam cleaners, and stainless-steel fasteners are available as standard.
The Conductix-Wampfler I-beam festoon is ideally suited for slow, heavy-duty applications in stockyards.
Robust energy guiding chain solutions
Conductix-Wampfler energy guiding chains provide a robust solution for multiple cable and / or hose applications.
The chains are available in nylon, nylon with aluminium stays, and steel (either galvanised or stainless 304, 316 or 316L). The range of guiding channels and frames also provides customers with a choice of materials, ensuring accuracy of movement, reducing wear.
Stainless-steel chains are available with ATEX zone 2 certification. Energy guiding chains provide a proven solution for linear and slewing operations, with a maximum rotational angle of 540°.
Slip ring assemblies and rotary joints
The company’s slip ring assemblies allow for infinite rotation in circular stackers / reclaimers, with current / voltage ratings of up to 3,000A and 6kV. The rings are available with a larger inner diameter to allow materials and services through the centre of the unit.
Combined power, control and media products (water, air, oil, vacuum, etc.) are available with ATEX and SIL 3 certification. Fibre-optic rotary joints are also on offer for data transmission purposes (ethernet and profibus).
Conductor rails for grab crains
Conductor rails are ideally suited for grab cranes and tripper conveyors. Conductix-Wampfler rails are available with a range of current / voltage ratings up to 1,500A and 690V, with higher levels available upon request.
Global production sites and marketing offices
With presence in more than 80 countries worldwide, and a global network of ‘excellence centres’, production sites, and sales and marketing offices, Conductix-Wampfler supports customers worldwidewith reliable products and customised solutions.
