Cable drums are used for the storage of power cables. They are made of plastic or metal, for alternating or rotary current. AC cable drums are often equipped with built-in safety sockets and an additional excess current circuit breaker. Rotary current cable drums have a steel plate coil with wound-up five-wire high-voltage cable with earthing-pin plug and coupling. The power is transmitted through covered collector rings and contact springs.
