Shipborne Power Feed Equipment (PFE)
(Ref. 128144-001 REV. A)
Spellman High Voltage is the leading independent supplier of Power Feed Equipment to the Telecom industry and most frequently utilized power supplies for shipborne uses. Our shipborne Power Feed Equipment (PFE-SB) is known for its reliability and quality. It is used with repeatered fiber optic cable systems for telecommunications and has been installed on numerous cable laying ships around the world.

68.93”H x 70.86”W x 31.49”D (1751mm x 1800mm x 800mm)
900 pounds (410kg)
Compliant to 2014/EU (Low Voltage Directive)
Protects the repeaters/cable and PFE. A HV relay and dump circuit will quickly and safely discharge the system in case of emergency shutdown.
Using either the Master front panel or SMT; the system output can be operated in constant current or constant voltage control and as a feed for a single end, double end or branched line.
System Management Terminal (SMT):
An advanced touchscreen control and monitoring system, the SMT can be installed within the PFE cabinets or remotely up to 80m from the PFE.
- Full output control and monitoring
- Ramp up and down in current or voltage control User set alarm and trip system|
- Output voltage and current logging
- Event logging
- Tone generator 10-40Hz
User configurable interconnects from Converter(s) to Electronic Load or Cable Termination Cubicles (CTC’s).
Fully isolated and actively adjustable resistance by a user. The electronic load allows input voltages from 600V to 12,000V in either polarity.
Full protection for user and connected equipment. All PFE access panels and patch panel connections are interlocked. External connection terminals provided to allow connection to CTCs, associated equipment or external E-Stop circuits.

Optional Cable Termination Cubicle (CTC12/377):
Used to safely accommodate half joints and bare cables for installation and repairs. The CTC provides a safe, interlocked enclosure for connection of the PFE HV to the cable conductors. 2 clamps and strain relief allow the fiber core to be separated and safely routed out of the box to external optical equipment.
