Monorail Geared Motor Drives have efficient electric overhead conveyors. The front side design of the clutch mechanism allows the easy integration of these units for floor conveyors. These are used for low load applications fulfill the requirements of directives. They built-in mechanical coupling to disengage the power flow. This feature allows the movement of the trolley by hand in case of break down or towing of the trolley within the working area or climbing areas. These are designed with double solid shaft for use in floor conveyors systems is available. The gearboxes can be reversed driven when the brake is open (no self locking). This allows the manual indexing of the trolley with mechanical devices. All gearboxes have lower energy consumption and gear sizes from 50-680 Nm.
Monorail railway system uses cars that run on a single rail. Typically the rail is run overhead and the cars are either suspended from it or run above it. Driving power is transmitted from the cars to the track by means of wheels that rotate horizontally, making contact with the rail between its upper and lower flanges. One of the principal advantages of a monorail is the relative simplicity of its track in comparison with that of a standard railway. There are two types of monorails, straddle-beam and suspended monorails. The most common type of monorail in use today is the straddle-beam monorail in which the train straddles a reinforced concrete beam in the range of two to three feet wide. A rubber-tired carriage contacts the beam on the top and both sides for traction and to stabilize the vehicle.
