Case Study: Incorporate an upgraded brake control into an existing brake system and hoist control
Requirements: Add a new brake control with regulated emergency braking within an existing hydraulic brake system and hoist control.
An older hoisting plant needed an upgrade to an outdated brake control and brake system. Spencer Engineering has an advanced brake control system that incorporates complete redundancy for all functions and is easily customized for this, or any other brake application. The new panel incorporates state-of-the-art manifolds and fully monitored valves for the entire brake system, to simplify maintenance and trouble-shooting.
The new brake control is PLC controlled for automatic hoisting and provides regulated braking during emergency stops. A new HMI system for the hoist operators was included as an upgrade to the operator’s console.
