Short project description:

The factory ropeway was developed in accordance with the new Machinery Directive EN 13849-1.

The ropeway with limited passenger capacity serves to transport supplies to the Göppinger Hütte chalet. A special characteristic of the ropeway is its additional middle station. Signals are sent from the mountain to the valley station using a transmission system that uses the telephone wire. The middle station is under video surveillance and images are transmitted to the drive station using a radio transmission signal.

Facts:

  • Horizontal length: approx. 2800m
  • 7 support masts
  • 2 passengers  
  • Speed: 2m/s

Short project description:

The factory ropeway was developed in accordance with the new Machinery Directive EN 13849-1.

This ropeway with limited passenger capacity constitutes a link between Hochkrumbach mountain pasture and the Jägeralpe pasture in Warth. Employees travel on the ropeway up the mountain and back down into the valley every day. The factory ropeway functions like a building elevator and can be summoned from the mountain and valley station using call buttons. The signal link between the mountain and the valley is maintained through a Setra cable.

Facts:

  • Horizontal length: approx. 1300m
  • 5 support masts; one of them in a curve
  • 6 passengers  
  • Speed: 3m/s

Control: fully automated
