Compact sizing for reduced space requirements

Insulated Conductor Systems U15 - U40

Mobile applications, be it gantry cranes, loading bridges, elevators or roller shutters, need energy. VAHLE’s unipole-insulated conductor systems are available in a wide variety of designs that are tailored to your needs.

The conductor systems U15 to U35 are particularly easy to maintain due to their open design. For use in harsh environments, the conductor is made of aluminium with a stainless-steel surface.

Capacity: 10 – 1250 A.

The heavy construction types U20 to U40 are particularly suitable for use in galvanizing plants, pickling plants, pressing plants, etc.

Capacity: 60 – 1000 A.

Compact Conductor System VKS10

In high-bay warehouses the place in the lanes is usually very narrow. Goods are stored or removed from the shelves in a very short time by means of shelf operating devices. The VAHLE compact conductor systems have been developed precisely for these requirements. The VKS10 can be simply clipped into a supporting profile. This allows the conductor system to be mounted directly to your shelf rails. This saves you costly and expensive auxiliary constructions.

Enclosed Conductor System KBH

As a crane manufacturer or crane operator, you need a robust and inexpensive power supply, which is also easy to install. The VAHLE conductor system KBH is a contact-protected system (IP23) for indoor and outdoor installations. The plastic housing can accommodate different copper cross sections for nominal currents of 63 – 200 A. The ball-bearing mounted collectors are led in the housing. Special sections enable quick and easy replacement of defective sections.

Our tried and tested finished parts storage allows for short-term and unscheduled delivery.

System Advantages

Fully insulated and touch safe housing for increased safety

Compact sizing for reduced space requirements

Enclosed design protects against environmental concerns

Curve & specialty sections available for custom applications

Enclosed Conductor System MKH

Wherever, besides the pure energy transmission, you need additional poles for the transmission of e.g. control signals – VAHLE conductor system MKH is the right choice. The MKH is a contact-protected system (IP23) in 6- to 10-pole design for indoor and outdoor installations. The plastic housing can accommodate different copper cross sections for nominal currents of 63 – 200 A.

The MKH conductor system is prefabricated in the versions MKHS (with bolted joints) and MKHF (with spring-loaded connector), or with continuous copper strips in the version MKHD.

System Advantages

Enclosed Conductor System LSV

Extreme heat and adverse environmental influences are not a problem for VAHLE’s enclosed conductor systems LSV and LSVG. Thanks to the aluminium housing you can use this conductor system at temperatures of up to 100° C. These conductor systems are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and are used as mobile power supply for cranes, overhead tracks, electric hoists, power tools, machine tools, stacker cranes, foundries, and other power consumers. They can be supplied in 4- to 11-pole versions. The rated current depends on the number of poles between 60 and 300 A.
