Lift control for linear motor vehicles

General The electromagnets installed on the vehicle body exert a pull on the rail from the bottom and thus lift the vehicle body due to ascending force. GAP-SENSOR controls conditions to keep the constant separation between magnet and rail, so contact with the rail does not occur.

Detection of the vehicle's position

Detection of the vehicle's position

General GAP-SENSOR detects the rotating pulse from the gears installed on the wheels to calculate the running speed of the rolling stock.
Using the data from the sensor, the base station controls the operations of the rolling stock. For example, and the running speed obtained is used further to detect the vehicle's position to prevent collision.
