- A gear motor

- A frame supporting the gear motor

 

The operative part

- A support frame, door post.

- A kinematic linkage.

- The heavy door.

- A protective enclosure equipped with two protective doors.

- A set of safety devices.

 

Control cabinet

It is an electric cabinet which allow to control the opening and the closing of the door in semi-automatic and automatic working; at variable speed; and to manage all the safety devices.

It is equipped with an electric cabinet made of painted steel including :

An PLC 12 input / 8 outputs ON/OFF power supply 230 V AC,

A speed driver with integrated braking resistance.

A disconnecting switch 4 poles 20A lockable mounted on the lateral face of the cabinet.

A transformer 230 V / 24V AC 50 VA for the supply of the auxiliary circuits.

A set of lights and safety devices with an emergency stop button.

The connection terminals of the sensors and actuators.

A potentiometer for the motor control,.

Two switches with 2 positions for the semi auto / auto modes and the up /down modes.

 

Motorisation :

Gear motor LEROY SOMER, equipped with a brake. Weight : 50 Kg

Power 2,2 KW , 400V 3 phases + neutral .

 

A support frame :

Support frame, mechanically welded, squared section tube of 100 mm. It receives the heavy door, the two protective doors, the different linking plates. It is mounted on wheels and three support feet with adjustable screws.

 

Kinematic linkage :

Gear motor LEROY SOMER.

Coupling

Heavy door :

The heavy door is a vertical sliding door. It is made of an aluminium plate of 25 mm thickness, 650 mm width, 1500 mm height, equipped with 12 pairs of axes to place the masses. Its empty weight is of about 70 daN. Its stroke is of 1000 mm.

It is limited in the two way by 2 x 2 limit switches. The first switch allows to switch in reduced speed, the second switch allows the stop the movement of the door.

It is equipped in basic version with 4 removable masses of 20 daN allowing to make vary the load. It is designed to receive a total of 24 masses, that allow to make vary the load from 70 daN to about 550 daN.
