ABU CONTROL

Anti-Sway Crane Control 

Lifts Crane To A New Level

ABU anti-sway control is independent of the wire rope hoist and overhead crane type and it is designed to provide a safe and efficient movement.  These structures are an important contributor to industrial productivity for warehouses, shipping yards or steel mills or construction sites.

Designed to increase productivity with higher speeds and faster acceleration by providing better positioning to ensure load accuracy is not swaying when travel motion is stopped.  The operator can now focus on load handling and need not worry about load swing thus reducing the risk of collisions due to load sway.

REQUIREMENTS FOR SYNCHRONOUS LIFTING

Without ABUControl

  • identical hoist types
  • identical nom. load of hoists
  • identical nom. lifting speed
  • contactor control, GLS

With ABUControl

  • No restrictions in hoist parameters
    (take care: a case of application!)
  • Frequency convertor lifting

TANDEM

  • Synchronous long long travelling of both cranes
  • Synchronous cross travelling of up to 4 hoists
  • Synchronous lifting of up to 4 hoists (if fitted with frequency convertor lifting
  • Load totalisation of up to 4 hoists

ABUControl is also available for e.g. gantry cranes when:

  • the above-mentioned restrictions are observed
  • the crane kit is configured by ABU Konfis
  • limiting factor is the max. cable length is given by ABU Konfis
  • the basic parameters are identical to a standard crane
    • e.g. the configuration for double girder crane span 30mtrs can be used or a gantry crane with 20mtrs span + 10 meters column

Advantages Of ABU Control

  • Standard components, easy replacement
  • No complicated programming necessary
  • No download of programs necessary
  • Easy adjustment of e.g. frequency convertor by WiFi
  • Approved data transfer in industrial quality
  • Easy diagnosis of systems and components
