Insulated conductor systems U20 | U30

Mobile industrial applications require a reliable power supply. Cranes, rides, sorter systems and collector rings place completely different demands on the systems depending on the environment and power range.

For high-frequency special systems, such as those used in intralogistics and theme parks, VAHLE has two solutions in its range: the U20 and U30 conductor systems. Due to their solid copper profile, high wear resistance and resistance to acids, they ensure a reliable power supply even in harsh environments and with complex track layouts.

Incidentally, the heavy-duty types available in addition to the standard versions are also available as heat-resistant versions. They meet the complex requirements in galvanizing plants, pickling and electroplating lines or pressing plants.

The standard length of U20 and U30 is six meters, and curved tracks are also possible. In order to adapt the conductor systems individually to the respective environment and route, they can be bent on site or already in the factory.
