RHINOSHIELDTM Type SHD-GC is a heavy-duty trailing cable where flexibility and maximum protection is required. For use with mobile, reeling, or stationary mining equipment, continuous mining machines, longwall mining systems, and blast hole drillers. It is also an excellent choice for shovels, draglines, dredges, cranes and marine shore-to-ship power supplies, and anytime extra-durable, flexible cable is required. Suitable for continuous submersion in water. Ground check conductor provides fail-safe ground monitoring. Embossed print legend for easy cable identification. Cold Bend and Impact Tested to -50°C.
