Depending on the requirements of the installation, the drive system can be installed at the bottom or top station, implemented as an overhead or underground drive and used as a drive or drive-tensioning station. It consists of the drive, the service brake, safety brake and the gearbox.
The DirectDrive, an exclusive offer from LEITNER, is the world’s only ropeway drive system that can be operated without a gearbox. The drive is directly connected with the bullwheel.
The lack of a complex gearbox brings significant operational benefits. The DirectDrive system provides a very quiet ride with noise levels around 15 dB lower than before. Its maintenance requirements are minimal and its operating costs are unbeatably low.
