Safety technology at the highest levelProgressive and reliable
The Rope Position Detection (RPD) system is the unrivalled safety standard for ropeway installations. It is the only system that can recognize a rope deviation from the liner groove at an early stage and consequently reduce the risk of deropement. Operational failures can be virtually excluded. As soon as the rope leaves the center of the groove, the ropeway is automatically slowed down. This reduces the kinetic energy present in the ropeway and consequently the hazard potential to a minimum.
In every respect, the unique RPD safety system is always one step ahead. Continuous monitoring of the rope position using advanced technology guarantees absolute operational efficiency for ropeway operators and maximum safety for their customers.
From the bottom station, along the line to the top station and back again. Real-time system checks can be performed conveniently and quickly from the control room before starting operations and during operations. RPD pinpoints the source of any error and indicates tower and switch number on the display as part of the fault report. That means maximum safety for the entire installation and for all passengers.
