Kolibri other charakteristic

Travel distance

The maximum travel distance is given by the arrangement and the load (weight of the lines). At normal arrangements the maximum travel distance is double the free carrying length. Support rollers or similar equipment may exceed this value.
In gliding arrangements travel distances up to 100 m are possible (according to the application).
For longer travels see chapter on design guidelines.

Travel speed

There are no limits for the travel speed in general. But with gliding arrangements application specific influences have to be taken into account.


There are no limits for the accelerations, in general. Limits may occure through the tensile stresses at high line weights.


Long term temperature limits are between -20°C and 100°C.
