How does it work? | Cable-cableway

In 1834, the German engineer albert Vogts invented the metal rope of intertwined steel wires. And after three decades in the North of Switzerland near Schaffhausen has introduced the world's first cable car for passengers. With its help the tourists up to the observation deck. How does the modern cableway? This was in today's issue!

The cable car are of two types: odnomandatniki and dvuhkonusnyj. A characteristic feature of the suspension rail of the first type is that the function carrier and the traction element performs one steel rope, a vicious in the ring. The rope is composed of wires twisted into strands around a tough core. Booths make the circular movement, being suspended from the continuously moving rope with a special useplease clips. On arrival at the station the cab disconnected from the rope, go to the station suspended the conveyor and moving on the hard rail with the help of wheels. The speed of the cabin is reduced to 0.3 m/s. Doors open automatically and passengers out of the cabin. Then, the trolley continues to move on the station conveyor to the other side of the station, passengers enter the cabin, the door automatically closed, the cabin accelerates the conveyor to a speed rope, and if off the track she again grapples with him clamping apparatus. The rope is driven by a friction wheel drive with traction pulley.

More common now dvuhmestnye monorail. Booths like this cable car hanging on a flexible support rope and move it along the rail with rooftop roller wheels. Carrying a rope connects the upper and lower station road and relies on a special mast. The second rope is traction. Booths attached to it and serve as its backbone. However, the great distance between the booths SAG of the rope can be considerable, therefore on supports install special support rollers. The actuator drives the traction rope, and the cab move in the right direction.

Dear Management is carried out centrally from the control room. Each cable car is equipped with anti-collision system, which monitors the distance between the cabins and avoid their collision with each other. On supports some cable cars are also installing a wind system, which in a strong wind slows down the speed of the booths and inform the staff of the cable car. To prevent jump-out of rope with clips at each support there are special sensors and traps near the rollers, which will not allow the rope to fall.

The Carrying capacity of a passenger ropeway can reach 2,000 people per hour. And the angle of the cable car can reach up to 50 degrees. The world's longest 96-km long ropeway existed in Sweden. It brought iron ore from Lapland on the shore of the Gulf of Bothnia. Her segment with a length of 13.2 kilometers converted into the world's longest passenger cable car.
