Improved operational safety and performance

Electrical Review Logo

Crane control software that brings increased safety, reliability and improved performance to industrial, harbour and tower cranes has been developed by ABB for use with its variable speed drives.

Called crane control program, the software is an optional add-on for the ABB industrial drives range which extends from 0.55 kW to 5600 kW. It incorporates all the functions commonly required for the hoist, trolley and long travel motions in industrial, harbour and tower cranes.

At the heart of the design is ABB's motor control platform, Direct Torque Control (DTC). DTC technology allows accurate control of speed and torque with or without pulse encoder feedback from the motor shaft. The Crane Control Program utilizes DTC to deliver enhanced operational safety and provides accurate slow speed control with high torque levels.
