Modernised underground haulage power system

April 19th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

ACTOM Electrical Products has introduced a modernised underground haulage power system. Not only is the new system sleeker, lighter, more durable and easier to install and maintain, but it is also available at a significantly lower price than the old product. These systems are mainly used for supplying power for lighting of underground haulages in mines. The connector boxes containing the16 A sockets and ES porcelain lamp holders in the new system are made of extruded fire-retardant polycarbonate, and are attached by tight-fitting screw-on moulded fittings to the sections of cabling linking them together, with all the armouring and other components of the system securely sealed against ingress of dust and moisture. These improvements all make for easier assembly and installation and make the system more durable and reducing maintenance and repair to a minimum.
