Power supply in overhead cranes: energy chains vs. festoons

Reliable and dynamic cable management is one of the greatest challenges in modern crane technology. While the components must be modular, they should also be consistently easy to install, low maintenance and cost-effective. Engineers often turn to two power supply variants to try and meet these demands: festoons and energy chains. ­
