The selection of the most suitable encoder interface for a highly dynamic positioning application is difficult due to the many different interfaces. A…

Dieser Artikel ist erschienen in der Konstruktionspraxis / Ausgabe 11 Bei der Auswahl und Dimensionierung der Komponenten für hochdynamische Anwendungen sind viele Aspekte zu berücksichtigen. Eine besondere Bedeutung kommt dabei der Übertragung der Positionsinformation vom Sensor zur übergeordneten Steuerung / zum Antriebsregler zu. Aufgrund der hohen Anzahl an unterschiedlichen Schnittstellen ist eine technische Einordnung sinnvoll.Abgrenzung zu FeldbusschnittstellenVi...

For every elevator the suitable solution. That's our mission. Visit us at interlift in hall 3 | stand 3150

In Augsburg we present our three magnetic tape based LIMAX product lines, which cover different requirements for shaft information systems and functional safety:LIMAX STANDARD: the STANDARD line comprises entry-level models for different hoisting heights. Due to their small design, the sensor systems are also ideally suited for modernization and retrofitting.LIMAX RED: the systems of the RED line are designed redundantly, in combination with a safe elevator control or...

At the start of training, ELGO once went up high, namely to the Thyssenkrupp test tower - Germany's highest viewing platform.

Together with the apprentices from the second and third years of apprenticeship, four new trainees and a student visited the test tower in Rottweil. At a speed of eight m / s, the panoramic elevator first climbed 232 meters to the viewing platform. The new trainees were able to get to know a product from ELGO in the application right away. The TWIN lifts are equipped with our LIMAX shaft information system. In this case, detects a mounted on the cab sensor, the cabin position...
