User-friendly design for LEITER ropeways control system

April 2015 - LEITNER ropeways has completely revamped the design of LeitControl, thus further enhancing the user-friendliness of the control system. Tailor-made for daily operations, user convenience has been significantly refined. LeitControl simplifies and improves ropeway control in many areas, with impressive results. While seven operating steps were previously required to garage the vehicles, from the correct positioning of the system and the adjustment of the switch points to the start of the conveyor chains, with LeitControl all that is required is a single press of the corresponding control button, which then begins the process completely automatically. The garaging system is only one example of the innovative LeitControl concept. The fact that multiple manual work steps are now carried out completely automatically increases operator comfort and safety and reduces the effort required. The design of the operator interface is based on modern operating systems. With an improved, user-friendly design, high ergonomics as well as uncomplicated user guidance based on modern operating systems, the risk of user error is reduced, and the training time of new employees is shortened.


“It provides operations managers with the ability to access all the data for their systems and to evaluate it as desired”
