ATEX type load limiting system
For FASSI F80 model cranes operating in an explosive risk environment (refinery), we have created an ATEX type load limiting system.
The EEx-d protection method commonly known as "Explosion Proof" is based on the concept of containment, that is, all electrical equipment is enclosed in special boxes capable to contain a possible internal explosion and prevent its transmission to the external atmosphere.
Our system provides the weight reading through pressure transducers and load cell on winch, proximity switches are used to limit rotation and switch limit switches for the winch rope.
Furthermore, the system is equipped with a light column and a siren to allow the operating conditions to be viewed from the outside.
