  3. CR-MAINT - Description



  • This practical course is guiding attendants to work on SINAMICS infeeders, inverters, motors and brakes of the actual rating as found on modern cranes.
  • Due to a special configuration of the training system 2 motors of original rating can be operated at full speed, voltage and current. For 1 motor typical loading will be simulated using the second motor as load simulator. A full-sized Bubenzer disk brake is installed to practice tuning of the drive for proper brake setting and - release.
  • Handling of infeed and inverter faults is practiced to the extend of component level repair and system recovery.
  • The SINAMICS infeed and inverters are controlled from a SIMATIC S7-400 via PROFIBUS just as on the real crane control system.
  • The SIMOCRANE Crane Management System is available on the training system.
