Hannay Reels introduces its new Broadcast Fiber Optic Series Reels designed specifically for the unique needs of broadcast SMPTE, Tactical and opticalCON cables. These metal reels are lightweight and stand up to everyday wear and tear better than plastic reels. The all-metal center bearings and posts are designed to stand strong under the tension of the longest lengths of broadcast fiber.
Hannay designed this series with a larger drum to meet the specific bend radius requirements of fiber. Each reel houses a drum extension for coiling fanouts on the front end of the reel. One of the best features we discovered about these reels is the spacious drum opening which allows you to thread existing SMPTE & opticalCON cables through to the drum extension without removing the connectors. An exclusive feature of the series is its rubber grommet on the front of the hub. This not only protects fanouts from dirt and debris but delivers the fastest access when setting up and breaking down.
A 3-Position cam-lock brake system allows for tension or free cable pulling. And no more lost cranks - the crank handle is permanently attached to the disc. Proudly made in the USA!
