The 6 wire electric extension and remote reel offers best in the business connectivity.
The 6 wire reel uses a wind turbine potted rotary unit with Teflon 14 gauge wiring in a completely weather sealed unit. The Contacts are maintenance free! That means no more bad connection days for you. The 6 wire reel does not include a lead to the welder, instead the endcap is removed and there is a color coded harness to attach your wires to. To connect your spool lead, slide out the rotary from the center of the shaft and feed your cable in through the shaft and connect the color coded wires.
High Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum Construction
Cold Weather Safe, tested to work in -25C (-13F) weather.
The wire can be used for your electrical cord and a remote control
Capacity - The rotary is re purposed from a wind turbine, we use the same rotary in all the 4-6 wire reels and they are rated to run 20-Amps with less than one milliohm of resistance. The 6 wire reel comes with 16awg wire soldered on.
Continuous electric connections in both winding and unwinding
Easy wire hook up
The reel is fully sealed. The bearings and rotary parts reside inside a sealed housing. The bearings, each rated to over 6,500lbs dynamic load and filled with a wide temperature low friction grease reside inside this housing.We use a heavy duty lip seal to seal the shaft to the base and o-rings to seal the other components which keeps that grinder dust and other elements out of your reels! This makes them cold and hot weather safe and keeps them running in all sorts of extreme conditions.
The finish on the parts is hard anodizing which increases surface hardness by ~ 4x and is applied in a controlled thickness which means we can coat everything, even the threaded holes. This prevents the galvanic corrosion that naturally occurs when aluminum and stainless meet. All aluminum used in the construction of the reels is 6061-T6 and is North American aluminum.
Our reels are built by pipeline welders and can withstand the harshest conditions, tried and tested. This is also one of the reasons we have custom created a twin bearing easy grip handle to make the last job of the day a little easier.
Interchangeable end plates for increased hose capacity (sold Separately)
To connect the reel to your machine, with the end cap of the reel off, feed the cable through the end cap and cable gland. Connect cable to color coded wires and re-install the end cap with the cable gland facing the desired orientation. Tighten down the cable gland, soap on the cable jacket makes it easier to slide the grommet.
