Typical applications: Small to medium overhead cranes, conveyors, monorails, hoists

Hevi-Bar II Conductor Bar

The Conductix-Wampfler Hevi-Bar II conductor bar uses surface area to dissipate heat. It can be mounted horizontally or vertically to function according to your needs in many instances. Conductix-Wampfler Hevi-Bar II conductor bar is available from Clutch Engineering and it is designed to last for the life of your equipment. Optional Dura-Coat finish provides protection in corrosive environments. (When mounting web brackets, take special care in aligning the brackets at precisely the same height as to assure level travel of the system.) Web brackets may be mounted by bolting the bracket to the support structure or by welding the bracket in place.

Maximum speed: 2,000 ft/min (609.6 m/min)

Typical applications: Medium to large overhead cranes, transit systems, steel mills, chemical plants

C-Rail Festoon System

Clutch Engineering offers Conductix-Wampfler C-Rail festoon systems for a variety of uses and environments. These systems can be made to survive in some of the most demanding of environments. Based on their advanced construction, they can be used indoors or outdoors. Special explosion-proof versions are available for additional durability. Tracks should be straight, or only partially curved. The festoon systems for C-rails are only used for project-specific requirements. The product has undergone hazard analysis and the construction and design are based on the latest technology.

Max capacity per trolley: 275 lb (125 kg)

Maximum speed: 393 ft/min (120 m/min)

Typical applications: Overhead bridge cranes, hoisting devices, conveyor systems”

I-Beam Festoon System

Available from Clutch Engineering, Conductix-Wampfler I-Beam festoon systems can serve the needs of heavy cable and high-speed applications. These festoon systems are designed to perform in various tough environments. Trolleys are available for both flat and round cables. For higher-speed or heavy cable applications, Conductix is able to manufacture motorized cable trolleys. The use of a pre-assembled festoon system (with pre-attached cables on the cable trolley) will save a significant amount of time and money. The festoon system is built in accordance with recognized safety/technical regulations using the latest technology and has been checked for safety compliance by the manufacturer.

Max capacity per trolley: 1,763 lb (800 kg)

These cable reels feature rugged all-steel construction for use in tougher conditions while maintaining their efficacy. These reliable cable reels are designed for long service life without extensive maintenance, if any. A ratchet mechanism locks the cable at the desired length and can also be disabled as needed. The reel may be mounted by bolting the base to any flat surface which is structurally sound enough to support it and the forces of winding and unwinding the cable.


Available cable length: 20 to 80 ft (6.1 to 24.38 m)

Typical applications: Overhead hoists, truck cranes, extendable conveyors

The two-piece cable roller guide has a mounting range of 345 degrees. The cable reel’s spring motor canister is sealed and lubricated for life. All 1900 & 2400 Series Cable Reels can be furnished with a pivot base to allow the reel to rotate and keep the extended cable perpendicular to the application.

Typical applications: Overhead cranes and hoists, truck cranes, automated material handling

RhinoReel Cable Reel

Clutch Engineering offers the Conductix Wampfler RhinoReel to meet some of the most demanding mill applications. This is a spring-driven cable wheel that uses linear springs rather than traditional clock springs. These features result in longer life and a smooth, linear torque curve. The linear torque curve creates the smoothest operating reel on the market, without any erratic motion. The life time lubricated ball screw and chain/sprocket drive system require no routine maintenance. This longer life translates to less machinery downtime and a lower cost of ownership.

Typical applications: Magnet cranes, grapples, transfer cars
