The Sway Control System OptiSway® is developed and distributed by CATS GmbH & Co. KG.
OptiSway® provides functions, which go far beyond simple sway damping:
- Perfect control of the load oscillation in all driving situations
- Simultaneous motion of hoisting, long and cross travel and slewing gear rotation without any restriction
- Highest precision at maximum driving dynamics due to short internal cycle time (20 ms)
- Virtually complete elimination of sway at stop
- Accuracy of load-positioning within millimeter range
- Very simple manual crane operation with basic function "sway-controlled manual mode"
- Even simpler in "Permissive Operation", i.e. in automatic mode with deadman button
- Unmanned fully automatic operation can be implemented with low expense
- Automatic circumnavigation of restricted areas
- Protection of restricted areas in manual operation mode
- Easy implementation of Security category 3 acc. DIN EN 954-1 and/or EN ISO 13849 without additional hardware
- Standardized interface to the crane PLC
- High flexibility concerning the interfaces to drives and sensors
- Selection of sensors according to the application-specific requirements
