Festoon Power Feed Systems

If mounting a hoist onto a beam with a travel trolley, it often raises the scenario as to what to do with the power cable and how to have it reach the hoist safely without getting caught in the trolley wheels, the chain wheel or suffering from damage and snagging in any way. The simple and most cost effective solution is a festoon system, a simple set of brackets that bolt directly onto the top flange of the beam above where the hoist will run, this extends arms out beyond where the hoist travels which holds a track, within that track that run parallel with the hoist sits several small trolleys to which the power supply cable is clamped and then wired into the hoist. When the hoist traverses the cable trolleys move with the hoist and transport the power cable avoiding any snagging.
