Power mobile equipment with motorised reels to ensure the safe and reliable transmission of power, data and fluids.

Cavotec cable reel system

1. Motor (with drive) Standard squirrel cage or torque motors, according to IEC Norms. Hydrodynamic cable reels can be supplied with a pneumatic or hydraulic motor.

2. Gearbox or Torque Unit Sever gearboxes and eight torque unites are available with variable output torque from 10-1200daNm.

3. Collector Standard sizes of collectors are available for power and signals. Current ratings vary from 10 to 2400Amp, voltages up to 30kV. We also manufacture customised collectors exceeding the above parameters.

4. The drums are composed of standard elements and can easily be adjusted to required widths. Standard drum diameters range from 300mm to 8700mm.


The Cavotec product range includes cost-efficient motorised reels systems produced in high volume series and relatively small volume projects. We support customers from design to commissioning of products and systems ready for use in the harshest operating and ambient conditions.

Cavotec manufactures motorised reels for horizontal, vertical, continuous and intermittent use. We provide tailored solutions for LV or MV applications, with or without fibre optics, for various applications.
