Two Brussels construction sites equipped with Verlinde hoists

As member of the Europont network, the Belgian firm Cluma provides an integrator service for lifting and handlng products manufactured by Verlinde.In the context of two public sector construction sites, one before the European Parliament and Council and the other in the suburbs, Cluma has supplied gantry cranes fitted with hoists to two consortiums: THV Leophat and THV Watermaal-Bosvoorde. In both cases, civil engineering is at the core of the contracts, one involving the road tunnel under Place Shumann before the European Parliament, the other the building of a rail tunnel to speed the link between the European quarter and the airport.


Ultrasonic technology for a range of applications

Level control in a water tank is one of the classic applications for ultrasonic sensors. A sensor in a M30 sleeve can measure heights of four or six meters without any problems. If the pump is controlled by means of a PLC, sensor installation is limited to mounting and wiring the sensor to the controller. The measured value is transmitted via IO-Link or analog output and processed further in the controller.

VERLINDE and SERE MAINTENANCE fit out "The Machines de l’île"

"The Machines de l’île" is an entirely new cultural and entertainment project. François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice are the originators of the project, a blend of Jule Verne's "invented worlds", the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci and the industrial history of Nantes in the West of France at a former shipyard turned into an amazing leisure and cultural centre. SERE maintenance has installed a number of VERLINDE hoists and suspended crane kit components to lift the various assemblies and installations.

Easy-to-use distributed frequency inverters: Configuration and diagnosis of NORD's SK 200E series via a system bus

SK 200E frequency inverters from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS are equipped with a proprietary system bus that allows for user-friendly, cost-efficient wiring in the field. Connected to the fieldbus or an Industrial Ethernet system via a bus technology unit that acts as a gateway, the system bus can link up to four frequency inverters. Thus, four drive units are connected to the higher-level communication system at one single point. All data is thus available at every diagnosis interface, i.e. users can access all data sets from every device connected to the system bus via RS232 interfaces at both the inverters and the technology unit.
