Power reel

I have a 1 ton hoist that rolls on a "I" beam, the power comes from a cable reel without the stops installed. The end at the hoist has a strain relief on the cable. The cable is spring loaded and recoils itself when ever it moves.
For you install you should mount a reel right in the midle above the winch. Make sure you get a good reel with roller guides at the payout section.

I'm planning on two I-beams longitudinally, with another I-beam running width wise, two trolleys on either side. The winch trolley itself will roll left to right on the center I-beam, and the center I-beam will roll from front to back.

So, with the ability to pretty much slide the winch anywhere in the garage, how do I supply it with a power source that will move with it?

A power reel of some kind in the center? Flexible wiring of some kind?

Hopefully someone has done this or seen it done.

Thanks - Karl

The garage is sadly only going to be about 22 x 44 feet, the most I can possibly squeeze in between my existing structure, easement on the side, and setback at the ends.
