RPM

Performance measurement device

Description

The RPM Rope performance measurement device makes it easier for you tocheck the rope tension during the installation, inspection and maintenance ofelevators.

Advantages

  • quick, easy and precise determination of rope diameter and tension
  • comparison and measurement of the rope tensions, e.g. within a rope set
  • determination of the weight of cabin, counterweights, etc.
  • easy documentation, query and comparison of the last 94 measuring results through storage in the device
  • high precision of rope tension measurement of + / – 5% and diameter measurement of + /- 1%
  • versatile through battery-supplied operation (1 x 9 V battery)
  • handy device: just 330 x 230 x 50 mm (12.9 x 9.1 x 2.0 in), weight only 2.6 kg (5,73 lb)

GDC

Groove measuring device

Discription

The GDC enables you to precisely measure and compare sheave groove variations. It enables early detection of worn-out drives heaves and may thus help to increase the service life of ropes.

Advantages

Robust design in aluminum with anodized surface. Application in seconds. Weight of only 100g. Applicable for diameters from 8-22 mm or 3/8-3/4 inch Precise finish.

RWG

Rope testing device

Description

Within seconds, the precision gauge enables you to check whether the minimum nomina ldiameter of the rope is below the target. If below limit, the rope must be replaced.

Advantages

Robust design in aluminum with anodized surface. Application in seconds. Weight of only 100g. Applicable for diameters from 8-22mm or 3/8-3/4 inch Precise finish.

VT LUBE

Rope lubricant

Discription

This rope care lubricant was especiallydeveloped for the relubrication ofelevator ropes.

Advantages

  • Excellent penetration quality causes optimum friction reduction in the rope
  • Excellent creep quality enables even lubricant distribution on and in the rope
  • Excellent corrosion protection suitable for high rope speed; through very good adhesive quality neutral quality towards synthetic materials (no swelling of plastic parts)

Caliper

Description

Wide flange calipers are specialized calipers designed to measure wire rope diameters. The flanges are wide so the contact spans over more than one strand to give an accurate measurement.

Radius Gauge

Description

A radius gauge allows the technician to quickly determine if the sheave groove is worn. Seat the radius gauge in the groove and direct a flashlight at the radius gauge from behind where it is seated in the groove. If light can be seen under the radius gauge, the sheave groove is worn. To get the exact depth of wear, use the GDC.
