"Mag Couplers" Versus Spring-Driven Reels

Even the most robust spring-driven cable or hose reel is limited by life of its springs. Heavy duty applications require routine spring replacement. And if the springs fail, cable tension is lost.
There is an alternate solution . . . Conductix-Wamplfer's Magnetic Coupler Motor Driven Reels! Mag Coupler Motor Driven Reels provide:

  • Long lasting drive train; no springs to replace
  • Less down-time when maintenance is required; components are easily accessible
  • Ability to handle a variety of cables/hose sizes and lengths; torque is adjustable to match the application; between one and seven mag couplers can be used to achieve the required torque range
  • Increased cable life; the mag coupler puts less tension on the cable than other drive types
  • Constant cable tension even if power is interrupted
