Control specialist Emerson Industrial Automation is to modernise the motor control system on an aging port crane in Puerto Cortés, Honduras.
Many ports and terminals continue to use cranes that are 15-20 or more years old,but once a crane reaches that sort of age inevitably electrical components begin to become unreliable, breakdowns can occur, and there can be an adverse effect on safety. As Portek, the Singapore-based company that specialises in supplying electronics and components for cranes, points out, breakdowns can be expensive.
To gain an insight into the way system designers can build intelligent controls into a crane, PS asked Wales-based Control Techniques Ltd to explain their approach.
