The project objective was the development and production of engine and device control for a mobile column lift in various deployments and environmental conditions.
A particular challenge is the suitability for especially heavy loads, but also the everyday operation of garages or breakdown services under changing environmental influences. The individual columns of the lifting platform are both, wireless with battery and SIL-2 compliant communication via radio, as well as stationary operated with power supply and CAN bus. Due to the necessary electronic synchronization control in uneven load distribution and to the applicable safety monitoring of the possibly radio-operated system, the functional safety of the composite poses a major challenge.
In battery mode is a simultaneous operation of up to eight columns, in network operation of up to twelve columns possible. Each column is equipped with an operating element.
