The motor cable reel (MLT) serves to wind and unwind a flexible energy supply system (reeling cable) for a mobile consumer. The
motor cable reel is composed of the following main components:

The cable is wound up onto the reel body. The dimensions of the reel body are sufficient to take up the cable length for the travel
distance including 2 windings for tension relief.

The drive unit is composed of magnetic coupling and standard motor. It provides a constant torque into the winding direction. The
slack required for unwinding is realized in the magnetic coupling.
(SRK)
The slip ring body serves for transmission of energy and data.
Voltage range 0-1 kV; amperage mA-630 A

All the main components of the motor cable reel are mounted to the gear unit. It provides the ratio to achieve the required travel
speed and/or torque. By means of the drive console the motor cable reel is mounted to the system.


The name plate is fixed to the slip ring body housing. It lists all technical data, the reel designation and the order number.
For questions regarding the supplied cable reel, e.g. spare parts, reconstruction etc. please state type and order number.

The figure on the right shows the lay out of the magnetic coupling. The coupling unit is characterized by a tough and compact design. The torque for transformation can be adjusted at
the magnetic coupling from the outside.

Gear Unit

The magnetic coupling is free from wear, due to a contactless


torque transmission

Figure 2


The magnetic coupling is supplied with the calculated torque
for the respective application. It always transforms a constant
torque in the direction of winding. During operation the primary
side of the permanent magnetic coupling runs with the nominal speed of the drive motor in the direction of rotation. The
secondary side of the permanent magnetic coupling stops if
the reel is out of operation or is moved in the respective direction during winding off or winding up.

Under off-circuit conditions, winding off the cable/hose is


prevented by the holding torque of the magnetic coupling
against the backstop.

Thus the magnetic coupling assumes the slack required on


reel drives in various operating conditions.

The drive units (motor, clutch) are designed for

The winding behavior of the motor cable reel must be observed for commissioning. If required, the torque of the magnet coupling
must be increased in case of a slack cable or idleness of the reel. The torque must be reduced if the cable is over tensioned.
To adjust the torque proceed as follows:
(Motor and coupling can be installed)
1.

Switch off supply voltage

2.

Secure reel body from winding off (block it)

3.

Eliminate the protective screen (4) from the bell housing

4.

Rotate the magnetic coupling so that the name plate (10) becomes visible

5.

Detach the hexagon head screw(s) (n) (5) (at HMK 8 and 12.5 - 2 pieces are displaced by 180) and unscrew it (them) until
the flange (7) can rotate freely. The cheese-head screws (8) remain tightened

6.

Adjust the torque by twisting the flange (7) by means of a round material in the blind hole borings (9), hold coupling body tight

7.

Depending on the direction of rotation the coupling parts move apart or together:

The random-winding reel body serves to take up low voltage or control cables.
The capacity of the reel body allows taking up the specified winding length plus 2 additional windings for tension relief (see also
figure 8).

For application on cable reels Conductix-Wampfler exclusively uses reeling cables according to DIN VDE 0250. If the reel cable is
not included in the delivery of the reel system, check the following:
The technical data of the cable provided for the application (weight, diameter, quantity and cross section of the cores, winding
length) must be identical with the data according to which the reel system has been calculated. This is the only way to assure that
the reel system (reel body, drive unit, number of poles of the slip ring body) and the cable to be installed will meet the operational
requirements.

Place dispatch reel or dispatch ring according to the figure below at a distance of some meters parallel to the reel axle. Only this
position guarantees a rewinding free of twists.

Figure 7

To connect the cable to the slip ring body it must be dismantled to a certain length. For the determination of that length proceed as
follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Open the cap of the slip ring body housing


Measure the length between flange fixation and upmost point of slip ring body
Dismantle the cable along this measured length
Shorten single cores with regard to the distances between the individual rings
Provide the terminations of the single cores with respective cable lugs

BAL7100-0071e-E

The cable, coming from the dispatch reel or ring, must be guided through the cable insertion at the reel body, the cable collar at the
inside of the reel and the hollow shaft of the gear unit to the farthest connecting point at the slip ring body. Then screw tight the
cable gland on the hollow shaft.
After having maintained the minimum bending radius (6x cable diameter) between the cable collar and the cable gland the cable
collar must be tightened. Turn the reel body manually or connect the drive motor temporarily (see operating instructions for drive
motor) and wind the cable slowly onto the reel body. By guiding the cable manually it can be assured that the cable will be wound
up free of twists (note the imprinted writing on the cable if required) and evenly (see below figure).

For the installation of random-winding motor cable reels (EB) observe the relative position of the reel to the cable fixed point.
The deflecting angle of the cable must not exceed 3-5 in any position (s. figure). Proper winding behavior may only be expected if
this maximum permissible angle is kept.

Figure 9

Correct arrangement of the random-winding cable reel to the


cable fixed point.

The maximum permissible angle must also be observed when


using guide rollers. If required the distance of the guide rollers
to the cable reel must be increased.

If the cable has already been installed ex works, this item can be neglected.
The reels are pre-adjusted and delivered according to the application data from the calculation. If the reel is supplied without cable
the actual cable diameter of the provided cable must be compared with the reel width. For the adjustment of the reel proceed as
follows:
The reel width b must be adjusted to the actual cable diameter at the interior diameter d by removing or joining respective
washers, so that a small air gap will remain between the outer sheathing of the cable and the reel shields.
2. The two reel shields (2/3) must be aligned in parallel or tapering to each other by adjusting the hexagon head nuts (13/14).
3. The dimension b at the outer diameter of an empty reel should be adjusted on such a small dimension that it is only slightly
larger than the measured cable diameter.
4. If the minimum adjustable dimension b at the reel sheathing ( d) is larger than the cable diameter, it is required to adjust a
smaller value at the reel outer diameter D.
5. The alignment must be made several times all around at each pair of spokes. Make sure to adjust the same value on all pairs
of spokes.
6. Measurements are made at the reel sheathing d (inner diameter of the reel/hole circle diameter e) and at the outer diameter D of the reel.


9. After having successfully aligned the hexagon head nut (15) on the hole circle diameter e tighten with and secure
with the lock nut (9).
10. Tighten the hexagon head nuts (13/14) on the hole circle diameter c with . Then double-check the alignment of the
reel body.

The adjustment of the reel width ex works considers the medium cable diameter. The reel width b to be adjusted must however
be in accordance with the actually measured cable diameter. Distance washers (16) or distance sleeves have been installed ex
works between the reel sheathing (15) and the reel shields (10, 17). The position of the distance washers (16) and sleeves is illustrated in figure 2, page 15. By removing or adding individual washers or distance sleeves, the reel width, referred to the actual
cable diameter, must be chosen as small as possible (max. +1 mm).

1. Tighten hexagon head nuts (8 and 21) on the hole circle diameter f with (M20) or (M16) and secure with
lock nuts (9).
2. Align reel shields (10/17) by adjusting the hexagon head nuts (19/20) in parallel or tapering to the outside.
3. Adjust the dimension b at the reel sheathing by means of distance washers/sleeves as low as possible referring to the actual

To connect the cable to the slip ring body it must be dismantled to a certain length. For the determination of that length proceed as
follows:
1. Open the cap of the slip ring body housing
2. Measure the length between flange fixation and upmost point of slip ring body
3. Dismantle cable along this measured length
4. Shorten single cores with regard to the distances between the individual rings
5. Provide the terminations for the single cores with the respective cable lugs

2.

Push the cable termination onto the reel sheathing between the reel shields.
On the cable duct guide the cable termination out of the reel body to the outside (If a ramp is available, the cable must be
guided out of the reel wheel in front of that ramp).

Guide the cable termination through the cable gland and the hollow shaft of the gear unit to the farthest connecting point of the
slip ring body.
Tighten cable gland (the not dismantled part of the cable must be within the rubber ring of the cable gland).
Observe the minimum bending radius of the cable between cable gland and cable duct

Reeling up the cable by slowly and constantly turning the reel body or provisional connection of the drive motor (see operating
instructions drive unit). Jerky reeling by motor must be absolutely avoided!
Bring cable end to cable fixed point.
Is a deflection device available, the cable will be led from the reel through the deflection device to the cable fixed point (see
operating instructions "deflection device").

See operating instructions about the corresponding "slip ring body".

After having completed above works the cable should be wound up and off several times (if possible in regular reel operation).
Subsequently it must be checked on the full and empty reel if the reel width has been changed. First check the width at the outer
diameter on the empty reel and adjust it to the lowest possible dimension, if required (= measured cable diameter).
Readjustment as described above.
Then wind up the cable and check the reel width at the outer diameter. Minor widening is permissible. The winding behavior of the
individual case will reveal, which degree of widening cannot be tolerated. For this judgment consider the horizontal displacement of
the individual cable layers.
If the windening seems to be too large, the reel can be adjusted at the inner diameter, so that the spare winding will already be
slightly clamped. Make sure however, that the reel width at the outer diameter must not be smaller than the actual cable diameter.

Starting from reel size ES1236 the delivered material includes a fixing angle to stabilize the cable between cable entry at the reel
wheel and cable gland.
1. The angle for cable guidance at the hole circle diameter e must be mounted with an offset of approx. 60 to the cable entry
2. Fix cable with cable collar(s)

Fix the reel body to the hollow shaft of the gear unit by means of the reel flange. The reel flange is composed of clamping elements, outer and inner rings, the wheel flange or flange bearing and one or two fixing flanges depending on the reel body and the
appropriate clamping screws.

The clamping element is a force-locked and detachable connection between drive unit and fixing flange. The torque is transfered
force-locked from the wheel flange or flange bearing across the outer and inner ring of the clamping elements to the gear shaft.
.

The fixing flange produces the force-locked connection between clamping element and reel body (spiral-winding or randomwinding).

The slip ring bodies must be maintained at regular intervals.
The maintenance must be carried out when the power supply is switched off and by qualified staff.
Normally maintenance is required every 1500 operating hours. This period may be much shorter in case of high temperature
(T>40C), high humidity, strong changes in temperature as well as strong influence by dust and dirt. Many cases require a sight
control at regular intervals. If the pollution on the slip ring bodies is very strong the maintenance intervals must be chosen respectively.
At least the following works must be done during maintenance:
1. Basic cleaning of the complete slip ring body
2. Removal for humidity and dust from the insulator surfaces with a soft cloth or a pencil.
3. Examination of the insulators as to damage or replacement
4. Examination or cleaning of the ring sliding surfaces on which the current collectors are running
5. Removal of enamel beads, arcing spots or oxidation
6. Inspection of the current collectors for wear or replacement
7. Control of the fixing and connecting screws for tight fit
Cleaning of the ring sliding surfaces can be made with a very fine abrasive paper.

The remaining components of the reel system (reel body, drive unit and slip ring body) are mounted to the gear unit. The reel system with the gear unit is mounted to the system.
Conductix-Wampfler uses two types of drive units, which have been developed especially for installation on motor cable reels:
Spur gear, types W63, W80, W100 und W125.
Straight bevel gear pair, types K12x.3, K16x.3, K20x.3 and K25x.3


On low-voltage motor cable reels (<1 kV) the drive unit must be mounted plane onto the fixing structure, avoiding any tension due
to unevenness. It must be fixed to an adequate stiff basement with an evenness of 0,1 mm. Use screws of strength category
minimum 8.8. These must be tightened evenly.
On medium-voltage motor cable reels (>1 kV) the drive unit has been mounted onto a console ex works. Fixation of the reel system
is made by means of the console, which must also be fixed plane to the fixing structure.


The drive unit is completely filled with oil on delivery. Prior to commissioning the included breather plug must be mounted to the
provided position.

The gear is driven by a horizontal driveshaft. The hollow shaft for the installation of the reel body as well as the slip ring body and
the drive shaft are arranged in parallel. The further projecting piece of the hollow shaft is for the installation of the reel body. The
gear housing is made of aluminum. The wheel sets are hardened. Each gear is equipped with an identification plate, which states
all the technical details:

Control of the temperature at the bearings and the oil sump (max. +80C)
Control of terms for oil change (10.000 operating hours)
Control of the drive unit for extraordinary noise emission
Control of the oil density, little drain of leak oil possible at the shaft exits
Cleanness of the breather plug or vent hole
Control of the water content in the oil, visual control of the filling hole

Oil changes are to be performed after 10.000 hours of operation. By checking the analytical values, the oil change intervals may be
extended. Drain the oil at operating temperature. After draining the initial oil filling, flush the gear. Be sure that the flushing oil is
compatible with the gear oil used. As flushing oil it is recommended to use the same type of oil. Do not fill in any fresh oil before oil
deposits, abrasion parts and residues of gear oil and flushing oil have been removed (see Table). Clean the securing screw and
insert a new copper ring. When performing an oil change, absolute cleanliness is essential.

The gear unit is lubricated by splash lubrication. With this type of lubrication the anti-friction bearings will be provided with a permanent oil filling.

Drain the oil filling in a warm operating state. After having drained the first oil filling the gear unit must be flushed. The flushing oil
should be identical with the used gear oil. After having removed the oil sump, abrasion and remainders of gear and flushing oil, fill
in the appropriate amount of fresh oil (see table). The locking screw must be cleaned and provided with a new Cu-ring. Absolute
cleanness must be observed during the oil change.

The gear unit is lubricated by splash lubrication. The bearings as well as the gear wheels and bevel gears are provided with a
permanent oil filling. The outer bearings of the drive shafts (bevel gear shafts) are lubricated for lifetime. Prior to delivery the gear
units are equipped with the appropriate oil filling ex works.
The gear units of types K16x.3, K20x.3 and K25x.3 are equipped with an inspection glass at the side to control the oil level. Control
of the oil level after 10 minutes of downtime. If the oil filling is sufficient the oil surface is visible through the inspection glass.

The gear unit must be stored under a roof and placed on a base (e.g. wooden pallet). Storing must be made in such a way that
humidity (condensed water) or contaminant will concentrate on the outside of the shaft sealing rings. The surfaces of the shaft
sealing rings must be lubricated for correct operation. Bare parts must be conserved.
We cannot assume any warranty for damage due to incorrect storage.

For a long-term storage of more than 6 months the gear unit must be completely filled with oil. It must be observed to use the same
oil as for the first oil filling ex works. For subsequent commissioning the complete oil must be drained. Commissioning as described
under item 3 and 4.

The motors must be stored in enclosed and dry places only. Storage in the open air with roofing is only permissible for a short time.
If stored outdoors temporarily they must be protected against harmful environmental influences and mechanical damage.
Transport or storage on the fan covers is not permissible. For transport use the ring bolts of the motors with the help of appropriate
fasteners. The ring bolts are only intended for lifting the motors without additional attachment parts, such as base plates, gear units
etc.


To slide on transmission elements (coupling, bevel or belt pulley) use the respective devices or warm up the part to be slid on. To
slide on these elements the shaft ends are equipped with centerings with threaded holes according to DIN 332 part 2. It is not
permitted to fix transmission elements to the shaft by force, since this could damage the shaft, the bearing or other parts of the
motor. All elements to be installed to the shaft end must be dynamically balanced. The rotors have been balanced with the full
feather key.
The motors must be positioned free of vibrations if possible. Special regulations must be observed for motors with low vibrations.
A very exact alignment is required for direct coupling with the motorized machine. The axles of both machines must be in alignment. The height of the axle must be aligned by respective underlaying of the motorized machine.
Ventilation exits must be kept open and prescribed minimum distances must be maintained, so that the cooling air will not be impaired. Make sure that the blown out, heated cooling will not be drawn in again. For outdoor installation of the motors (protection
grade IP 44) it must be observed, that the motors will be protected against direct climatic influences (direct rain, snow, ice, freezing of the ventilator). The type of construction permissible for the motors is stated on the identification plate. Installation in different
types of construction is only permitted with the approval of the manufacturer and, if required, reconstruction according to his specifications.


All works at the motor must be done under off-circuit conditions. The installation must be made by qualified people considering the
respective prescriptions.
First compare the conditions of the power system (voltage and frequency) with the data on the identification plate of the motor. The
dimensions of the connecting cables must be adjusted to the nominal currents of the motor.
Item 8 of this document about clamping plate switching shows the most common circuit diagrams for the basic version of three
phase motors, which show how to make the connection. For other versions we provide special circuit diagrams, which are stuck to
the terminal box cover or are placed into to the terminal box.
The motors must be put into operation with an overload protection adjusted according to the nominal data of the motor. Otherwise
there will be no warranty claim in case of damage by the winding process. Prior to the first switch-on we recommend controlling the
insulation resistances. The resistance winding against mass and between the phases should be 5 Mega ohms (in cold condition
with crank inductor, measure voltage 500 Volt). After longer storage it is urgently required to measure the insulation resistance.

BAL7100-0071e-E
www.conductix.com

Page 33 of 48

Prior to coupling the work machine check the rotating direction of the motor, to avoid any damage at the main engine. The rotating
direction can be changed by exchanging the connections of 2 phases.

all connections of the terminal box must be tightened,


all minimum value of the air gaps must be kept (large 8 mm up to 500 V, larger 14 mm up to 1000 V),
the interior of the terminal box must be clean and free from foreign matters,
unused cable inlets must be closed and the locking screws must be tightened,
the sealing in the terminal box cover must be clean and stuck into and all sealing surfaces must be provided accordingly to
guarantee the protection type.
Prior to switching on the motor it must be checked that all safety regulations are observed. The same is required for operation and
when the motor is switched off.
For commissioning we recommend to observe the currents, when the motor is loaded with its work machine, so that eventual overload is immediately recognized. During switch-on the starter must always be in the starting position.


On the first commissioning and in particular after a longer storage it is required to check the insulating resistance of the winding
against mass. Depending on the nominal voltage UN the following minimum values must be kept:

1 > PN 10
10 < PN 100


6,3
4

If the value falls below the minimum value the winding must be dried properly and the insulating resistance determined again.

BAL7100-0071e-E
www.conductix.com

Page 34 of 48


If it is required during maintenance works to dismount the motor, remove the existing sealing compound from the centering edges
and seal again with an appropriate motor sealing compound when reassembling the motor. Existing copper sealing disks must be
reinstalled in any case.

The anti-friction bearings of the motors are usually lubricated with anti-friction bearing grease according to DIN 51825 as listed in
the following table:

K2P

Lithium base

KPER 63-315, K11R 132-225


KN... (abbreviated designation for squirrel-cage standard motor)

With normal load and under normal environmental conditions the quality of the grease allows an operation of the motor of approx.
10 000 hours for a 2-pole type and of 20 000 hours for a multi-pole type without replacing the grease of the anti-friction bearings,
unless otherwise specified. The condition of the grease filling, however, should already be checked occasionally before this period
has been expired. The indicated number of running hours is only applicable for operation with rated speed.
The bearings are relubrictated after having been thoroughly cleaned with an appropriate solvent. Use the same type of grease.
Please note that the free space of the bearing may be filled up with grease by about 2/3. Filling up the bearings and bearing covers
completely with grease will increase the bearing temperature and result in stronger wear.

In order not to impair the effects of the cooling air all parts of the motor must be cleaned at regular intervals. Mostly it is sufficient to
blow them out with water- and oil-free compressed-air. In particular the vent holes and clearances must be kept clean. The deposited carbon dust from natural abrasion in the interior of the motor or the slip ring must be removed at regular intervals. For the
regular inspections of the work machines it is recommended to include the electro motors as well.


A continuity test of the thermistor circuit with test lamp, crank inductor and similar items is strictly forbidden, because this would
result in an immediate destruction of the sensors.
If it is required to re-measure the cold resistance (at approx. 20C) of the circuit, the measurement voltage must not exceed 2.5 V
DC. We recommend measurement with Wheatstone-bridge with a supply voltage of 4.5 V DC. The cold resistance of the circuit
must not exceed 810 Ohm, measuring the warm resistance is not required.

The brakes prevent the cables from winding off in case of power loss or when the motor is switched off. They provide their holding
torque under off-circuit conditions. The installation sizes 0.25 to 6,3 generate this holding torque force-locking by a conical clamping connection, while on sizes 10 to 25 this torque is provided by an adhesive joint.

Connect the brakes according to the technical data to AC-voltage via a rectifier unit. The rectifier is fixed in the terminal box of the
motor. Voltage can be supplied directly at the motor clamping plate or by a separate control.
Bremsspule

The brake coil is connected to the rectifier at the + and clamps.


The two ~ clamps are joined with the motor clamping plate (V1 and V 2).

This resetting is to maintain a functional air gap S (see dimensional sheet 2), by means of the adjusting screws (04) and the fastening screws (19).
Resetting the brake is possible up to the limits of possible wear (minimum thickness of friction lining, see dimensional sheet). As
soon as the minimum thickness is reached, the friction lining (08) must be replaced by unscrewing the coil body (01).

The brakes have been built in a way that they can be refitted for handoperation without mechanical treatment, if required. The basic
configuration of the system hand-operated brake is shown in figure 33.

Depending on the respective requirements in the operating conditions and the resulting circuit diagram it may be required to install
a gear cam switch. This switch is usually equipped with one to twelve cam rings. According to the layout of the cable or hose reel
these cam rings are used for limitation of final positions, bridging for crossing of central feeding to avoid slack signal or to regulate
the cable pull depending on the wound up diameter. The gear cam switch is powered by a coupling or a chain.

Each contact is assigned a cam plate, which is continuously adjustable. The cam plates (1) can be adjusted independently by
means of the adjusting worm (2). The adjustment can be made without detaching any parts beforehand. The worm is self-locking.
To preset the worm use screwdrivers of 10 mm or 4 mm and a hexagonal wretch of 4 mm.
If the worm makes a clockwise rotation (360), the clamp plate rotates clockwise, too by 2.464 (view to the rear part, the B-side of
the switch).
The standard cam plates have been designed in a way to provide a max. useful path and a slowing-down path. Cam plates with
other useful paths can be installed as special plates.
If the slowing-down path is exceeded the switch will not be damaged. The contact is however opened or closed again.
Slowing-down path

After the contacts have been adjusted the gear cam switch must be closed again immediately with the cap, to prevent penetration
of dust or water, which might affect a correct disconnection.

Accidents due to touching live parts will be prevented as well.


When placing on the cap make sure that all the screws are equally tightened to prevent the cap from canting and avoid improper
contact pressure of the sealing.
During the assembly of the cables it must be observed that the clamping nut will be carefully tightened after having introduced the
cable (2 to 3 Nm depending on the type of cable). Since on some cables the plastic sheathing will be deformed permanently at the
clamping position of the Pg-gland due to constriction, it is recommended to retighten the clamping nut by half a rotation after 3 to 4
days.
The cable entry to the gear cam switch shall be designed in a way that the cable will not be able to conduct water to the Pg-gland.

The design of the gear unit with planetary grades provides the possibility to install a block displacement in addition to the individual
contact adjustment starting from a useful revolution of 17.5. In this case the last gear speed will also be equipped with an adjusting
worm, however in black color.
With the help of this adjusting worm (2) all cam plates (1) can be adjusted together. The relative adjustment of the individual contacts against each other remains unchanged.
Turning the worm to the right by one rotation (360) the cam plate will also be turned to the right by 0,575 (view to the rear part,
the B-side of the switch).

Any works at the gear cam switch must only be executed by qualified staff observing the VBG4 regulations!
In particular it is required to observe the following operational safety advice:
The gear cam switch is constructed according to the state of the art and safe to operate. This equipment may however imply some
risks if operated by unauthorized people, improperly or not in accordance with the specifications.
Each person in charge of the assembly or disassembly, commissioning, handling and repair of the gear cam switch at the operators facility must have read and understood the complete operating instructions and especially the safety advice. We are not responsible for any damage or disturbance due to the non-observation of these operating instructions.
Each method of operation that might influence the security of the gear cam switch must be avoided.
The operator is obliged to immediately report any change at the gear cam switch that might influence the safety.
The operator is obliged to operate the gear cam switch in faultless condition only. Any reconstructions or modifications without
authority, which might endanger the security as well as the installation of foreign accessories are not permitted.
After the respective electronic assembly or repair the respective safety measures must be tested (e.g. earth resistance).

These operating instructions are subject to any technical modifications that will be required for the improvement of the gear cam
switches.

The user must guarantee the observance of this guideline about the electromagnetic compatibility 89/336/EWG and also observe
the brochure advice on EMC for operation and installation of electromagnetic couplings, brakes and limit switches No. 170 00
0000 956 (manufacturers of systems or machines). Brochure on request.
Emitted interference must be eliminated at the source of interference, if possible. Below you will find some protective circuits, depending on the load switched by the contact.

Basically maintenance or inspection works at the gear cam switch are not required.
Do not remove dust deposits with compressed air, since this would press the dust more into the contacts what would affect the
switching capacity. The cap sealings of the protective housings must be renewed when opening the cap after a longer time of
operation. Never use gasoline or other solvents for cleaning the gear cam switch!

Prior to commissioning the electric circuit must be controlled and all screwed connections must be checked for tight fit. In a first run
find out if the cable is wound up properly and without any twists over the complete distance. The cable should form a certain sag
during winding up and winding off (see below figure).

Note:

Conductix-Wampfler motor reels are tested at works and adjusted to the calculated required torque. If disturbances
should occur in spite of this please proceed according to the following table.
