Other PLE charakteristic


The maximum travel is determined by the arrangement and the additional weight (line weight). At normal arrangement the maximum travel is twice the free carrying length. Support rollers or similar constructive steps can increase this value.

In gliding arrangements travel distances up to 100 meters are possible.

Longer travel distances need further constructive steps, like SYSTEM MARATHON, which exceeds the travel distance nearly without limits.

Travel speed

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


In principle there are no restrictions for the acceleration. Limits can only be achieved at high tension forces caused by high additional weights.


The operating temperature is inbetween -20 ° C and 100 ° C.
