'Skypit' Cable Retriever


400HZ Cable Retriever Mounted on Passenger Bridge

Its mechanical design is such that moving or rotating elements and electrical contacts have been reduced to the bare minimum, in order to minimise the risk of breakdown and the need for maintenance.

The cable is stored naturally by gravitation, avoiding useless rotation and twisting, to optimise its life expectation.

The position of the retriever on the side of the bridge eliminates the risk of collision with vehicles driving around the aircraft.
