How Cable Life and Strength is Impacted by Pulley Design

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Every person who has gone to a gas station has used pulleys, whether they know it or not. As, Pulleys are a simple machine used in mechanical applications where reducing effort is optimal, in the case of fueling up one's car, the pulley system assists by spreading heavy loads across the distance between the fueling unit and a car's fuel dispenser. In this case, the load also typically traverses a bend radius or radii. In the case of EV charging stations, similarly to gas station pumps, the pulley at the top of the charging unit allows a cable-made tether to glide effortlessly around the pulley and support the weight of the charging cable.
