Safety of control
The Sichuan Mining Machinery Company, China’s leading supplier of passenger and materials ropeway systems, chose Control Techniques drives for the cable car lift at Kongtong Mountain, a popular tourist and skiing destination in Gansu Province for their smooth operation and precise control.
The control of the cable car is by a 300 kW, four quadrant Mentor DC drive, fitted with a programmable plug-in MD29 module, operating in conjunction with a Modicon PLC. Standard functions of the Mentor DC drive include digital speed and position loop, centre-wind for coiling and uncoiling applications, shaft orientation, and kW signal for motor power consumption.
