Conductix-Wampfler recently launched two of its new solutions for container crane manufacturers at TOC Europe 2015 in Rotterdam.
These initiatives aim to strengthen the company’s position as the leading global supplier of energy and data transmission systems.
The first new release is its ProfiDAT data transmission system, imbeds a 100 Mbit/s data transmission channel within the ground rail phase earth (PE) profile, providing the crane with advanced data capabilities without requiring additional installation space.
The second, the High Dynamics SMART Drive motor-driven cable reel series, uses newly designed components together software algorithms to handle highly dynamic applications while generating the least possible tensile load on the cable.
Conductix- Wampfler believe that the ever-increasing degree of automation in container ports makes it necessary to transmit large amounts of data and control signals in real-time.
The ProfiDAT comes in two main configurations for Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes and E-RTGs (Electrified Rubber-Tired Gantry Cranes).
For E-RTGs, the PE is integrated into the data rail profile enabling the conversion of an existing conductor rail configuration to a complete energy and data solution without requiring additional space.
For STS container cranes, the necessary data profile can be added in parallel or alternatively installed within existing conductor rails as an integrated PE configuration.
The High Dynamics SMART Drive motor-driven cable reel by Conductix-Wampfler is specially designed for highly dynamic crane applications.
Based upon required system specifications, the correct components are selected from the High Dynamics SMART Drive assembly options using a specially developed design tool that provides the optimum solution for the company’s customers and their applications.
