This question already has an answer here:
So we have this machine at work, a strapping machine, and it has a long power lead which is left loose on the ground, and it's getting gradually destroyed - accident waiting to happen.
I know that there are fire hazard risks associated with coiling wire, but I don't know how to work out how much you can coil with virtually no risk.
I would prefer that we don't permanently shorten the cable, because it may come in handy to have it long in the future, and we'd have to raise engineering tickets etc... major hassle for what I suspect is a non-issue under these conditions.
Please help! Let me know what other info might be pertinent.
- Rated Power: 5A
- Volt/Hz: 230/50
- Cable length: Around 3m
