Available to view at www.ellispatents.co.uk/videos, the animation highlights the unique strengths and benefits of the two-in-one cable guide and clamp, which has been designed specifically to assist in the installation and subsequent restraint of high voltage (HV) cables.
Richard Shaw, managing director of Ellis, said: ‘Trying to explain exactly what the Cable Guide Clamp can do has proved difficult, but whenever you’re able to show it to people they grasp the concept immediately and are invariably blown away by it.’
Initially designed for an offshore project for Siemens, the Cable Guide Clamp was developed into a full range suitable for use with large diameter cables. Firstly, cables are guided by it into their final location, while trumpeted entry and exit points ensure the cable is not damaged when fed through any particularly sharp angled turns. Once the cable is laid correctly, the top half of the guide is then removed, a fixing piece installed directly onto the cable and the top half re-secured, thus turning it into a fully-functioning HV cable clamp.
Richard continued. ‘The Cable Guide Clamp is certainly one of our most innovative products and hopefully the 3D animation will prove to be an innovative way of promoting it.’
