Secure motion with collision control

SYB3.0 stage control systems with collision control

SYB 3.0 stage control systems – Clear the stage for innovative software functions according to SIL3

Modern stage technology enables increasingly challenging motion sequences with numerous complex drives. These sequences often include multi-dimensional and interdependent motions. A clear view on the drives is often restricted due to decoration and curtains. The two collision control modules of the SYB 3.0 stage control system developed by Rexroth assist technical personnel with challenging tasks.

Anti-collision system

The anti-collision system recognizes any potential collisions in advance and prevents the initiation of motions at the respective drives or stops any motions that are already in process. Collisions are prevented between drives and between drives and fixed structural components in compliance with safety integrity level 3. This system protects stage equipment from heavy damage due to collisions during set-up, rehearsals and shows.

Anti-collision assistant

The function of the anti-collision assistant to support technical personnel can be compared to the parking assistant in a car. Personnel is warned of any potential collisions by visual feedback with various warning levels dependent on the speed and distance until collision. This is realized in real time either while the motion is in progress or even already during programming of the show. In this respect, all drives and decorations are monitored by the assistant.

High-performance winches in the upper machinery: Mechanical load often underestimated

Current measurements at installed upper machinery drives prove that in case of a category 0 emergency stops, the load on the mechanics is much higher than previously assumed. In reality, the design criterion of twice the rated load prescribed by DIN 56950-1:2012-05 is often critically exceeded by the simple accident load. This may result in considerable risks for human beings working under the hovering loads. Using a new mobile measuring device, stage operators are now able to measure the actual loads and to economically retrofit the high-performance winches that are affected.

No fear of the extreme: seven records using hydraulics

Force, torque, robustness: These physical advantages have always been used as arguments in favor of using hydraulics in a wide range of applications. For decades, hydraulics have amazed us time and time again by pushing the limits of what is technically possible. Below you will find seven examples of how fluid power moves huge masses safely, precisely and, if need be, quietly, how it can be used for space travel, how it works at the bottom of the ocean, how it forms steel with millimeter precision, and how it saves enormous amounts of fuel.
