Cable Reel Sample Breakdown

PAT Hirschmann Cable Reel Breakdown
The length cable is mounted to the tip of the boom and transmits the anti two block signal. The number of turns and the diameter of the cable drum define the length of the uncoiled cable, thus, the telescopic length is determined. The angle measurement is determined by means of the angle sensor mounted inside the cable reel housing.
