Cable drum

Cable drum capacity calculator

A handy tool for finding a cable drum that suits your needs - just enter your cable diameter and required length and it will return a list of matching cable drums.

All figures given are based upon a theoretical ‘tight pack’. It is recommended that an allowance of up to 30% be made to accommodate loose winding. A lower percentage could be used if the crew are known to always wind the drums neatly!

Input cable information here
Cable diameter (mm)
Desired capacity (m)
Cable weight (kg/m)

Key

Calculated Capacity result is highlighted in green when the drum can accommodate the 'Desired Capacity'.

Weight of Cable & Drum result is highlighted in red when the weight exceeds 16kg. At this weight a user may need to make a risk assessment with respect to moving and/or carrying such without assistance.

Note

Drums with CTS suffix have an open hub 'Cable Tail Support' on their flange. This would accommodate a further couple of metre's of cable to allow the cable tail to be brought out of the drum at a gentle angle, however, calculated capacities remain the same as standard versions.

Drums with CTF suffix have cable tail supports plus an additional flange, forming an 80mm wide extra section on the side of the drum to protect the tail, calculated capacities remain the same as standard versions.

Cable diameter: 6.5mm, Desired capacity: 150m, Cable weight: 0.049kg/m
