The chain is attached to the wagon by a mobile pin and the wagon is guided in the same guide track as the chain. . 40 and 60. making assembly on site easier (Note: the data sheets size 40 are not available in this document).Maximum Speed .Maximum Play under Compression . with selection depending on the effort required to transfer the loads. thus allowing a fast and diverse possibility of scenery changes.Maximum Pushing Force .Maximum Height of Couple .Noise Level of Chain through Drive Housing : : : : : : : 35 tons 2500 Dan up to 1 m/s up to 250 mm 0.8 mm/m 2 mm/m for 2000 Dan 45 to 55 dBa depending on the speed To 1 m away from the source 60 to 67 dBa depending on the speed to 1 m away from the source These values are given for informational purposes only.HORIZONTAL TRANSFERS 1. which ensure a low noise level. Technical Characteristics (SCT 60) . Our product range includes two chain sizes. This system enables the stage wagons to cross the complete stage left to right and front to rear. The steel corner plates are used to guide the wagon and interface with the wooden floor. The systems are of modular design. 4. 2. We strongly recommend discussing each application with our engineering department to ensure the most cost effective solution.Maximum Play in the Chain .Maximum Load . Principle of Use The original principle of movement is based on driving a chain through the drive housing into a guide system. Guiding Principle The chain runs on plastic rollers in an aluminum guide track.Noise Level of Chain through Guide . The rollers move on plastic rails.

Motor Drive and Control The chain is driven by a geared motor. which drives an encoder permitting exact positional control of the wagon. A cable is fixed to the front end link and placed on the chain.5. .
