Shaft copying systems
Safe, precise, robust
- Travel height up to 392 m
- Safety: SIL3 certified
- Dynamic: Travel speed up to 12 m/s
- Precision: Resolution up to 0,5 mm
- Direct: Absolute positioning
Absolute positioning of the elevator car for travel heights up to 392 m.
The contactless absolute measuring system for shaft copying – also called shaft information or positioning system – has an extremely compact, very robust design. In addition to the sensor, which detects the position of the elevator car 100% slip-free, it also includes the appropriate evaluation unit, a so-called Position Supervisor Unit (PSU). The safe system therefore consists of a SIL3-certified sensor and a suitable evaluation unit. This enables elevator and safety functions to be implemented in accordance with EN 81-20/21/50.
Reliable determination of position and speed values
Kübler offers various sensors for this purpose. The Ants LEB02 serves as a classic shaft copying system for precise positioning of the lift car. The SIL3-certified Ants LES02 and Ants LES03 sensors can also be combined with various evaluation units from Kübler. The sensors from Kübler are particularly characterised by their compact and robust design.
Safe systems for the realisation of safety functions
In addition to sensors for safe position and speed detection, Kübler also offers the appropriate evaluation units, also known as Position Supervisor Units. In this way safety functions can be implemented in accordance with EN 81-20/21/50. Kübler Safe systems thus make a significant contribution to the digitalisation of lift systems. Numerous mechanical components such as limit switches or even the classic overspeed governor can be eliminated. This saves space, time and costs.
Safety functions without triggering the electromechanical safety gear
- SIL3-certified sensors with suitable evaluation unit or position supervisor unit for the realisation of lift and safety functions according to EN81-20/21/50, e.g. limit switch, inspection limit switch, UCM
- Elimination of numerous components
- Simple and quick installation
- Space-saving design
- Smart teaching functions.
Outlook 2023: PSU03
- All-In-One Concept
- Further safety functions can be implemented
- Integrated release of the electromechanical safety gear
- Numerous additional features
- Reduced cabling effort
