Cable boxes and standard cable reels

The cable is winded up inside the reel body and thus completely disappears in the box. The cable length varies between 3 and 10 meters. Protection type IP20 (covered) may only be used indoors.
Apart from that, there are more standard cable reels with sheet steel or plastic body for indoors.

Cable reels for outdoors

Suitable are all cable reels with sheet steel or plastic and protection type IP44 cable reel for site construction(foreign body- and splash water-protected). Supply several devices with power at the same time thanks to the  plug system.
A residual current device, also referred to as safety switch, provides protection against dangerous electrical accidents.
The length of the cable reel, 25m, 40m and 50m, depends on the intended purpose. In this segment, brennenstuhl® only offers products made in Germany. Cable reels for outdoors can also be used indoors.

Which cable reel on the construction site or for commercial use?

For the requirements and the rough conditions on the construction site, we have especially certified cable reels satisfying the requirements according to BGI608 and VDE 0100 part 704. The plastic cable reels with protection type IP44 have been designed for permanent outdoor use.

Cable reels for the garden

A garden cable reel differs from a normal cable reel in that it only has one connector instead of a socket insert and a coupling at the other end.
Using this coupling, you can, for example, supply the lawnmower or the electric hedge trimmer with power.

Which cable reel for camping have at the campsite?

Camping reel When it comes to the camping power supply, there are some requirements for the connection cable that is to ensure the power supply between the power station at the campsite and the motorhome/caravan. All requirements are met by brennenstuhl® camping cable reels.

What is the maximum cable length for my camping cable reel?

The maximum length of 25 m cable (+/-2 m) for connecting the caravan must not be exceeded. Furthermore, the conductor cross-section of the power cable for the connection of the caravan or motorhome must be at least 2.5mm² with a rated current of 16A. In addition, the camping cable drum must be dust and splash-proof (protection class IP44) and have a robust rubber cable H07RN-F (or equivalent). The robust, oil-resistant RN cable on brennenstuhl® camping cable reels is in the signal colour orange to increase awareness of potential tripping hazards caused by the cable lying around.

Camping cable drum with CEE plug

Camping cable reels are generally equipped with a CEE plug to ensure the power supply between the power station on the campsite and the motorhome/caravan. Depending on the purpose, camping cable reels are available with CEE sockets only or combined with CEE sockets and earthing contact sockets. With cable reels, the cable should always be completely unwound when in use.

Everything you need to know about Power Supply during camping can be found in our article.


Why do you have to unroll a cable reel?

It is not recommended to use a cable reel with rolled up cable. In case of excessive load, the core of the cable reel will get extremely hot. For this reason, an installed overheating protection is required, which will trigger before the cable insulation starts to melt.
