Replacing mechanical cam limit switches on cranes without PLC

“I am sorry. But that device is no longer available.” Something along those lines or similar is how the answer can sound when mechanical rotary cam limit switches installed on cranes, with or without an aged PLC, have been discontinued or are no longer available for other reasons. And, what now? The solution can either be complicated and expensive – or you can give us a call. The reason is we have developed a simple solution to raise the monitoring of positioning ranges to be on a par with the latest state-of-the-art technology, without any further conversion measures.

Programm switching points via software

With the electronic position switch ERC 40  the user is now able to program the high precison switching points via software. Essential for crane operators: Even external effects resulting in shock and vibration do not alter the switching points; they remain saved in the ERC 40.

Herewith we offer the possibility of a 1:1 exchange as well as other interesting advantages. Get to know more in our Case Study

One solution for various attachment positions

The ERC 40 offers a suitable replacement system for many cranes and installation situations. This enables more flexibility, higher accuracy and less spare parts. Click through our port and crane animation to discover the various construction sites.
