ROSE Systemtechnik at FMB 2018 – The GTV light height adjustment system enables ergonomic workplace design

The height-adjustable GTV suspension system from ROSE Systemtechnik can hold system panels weighing up to 60 kg which also can be optimally adapted to the needs of each operator. ROSE presents the smaller, less expensive GTV light version for enclosures up to 25 kg at the FMB supplier trade fair. The new suspension system makes it much easier for companies to set up ergonomic workplaces.

The user-friendly design of industrial workplaces is stipulated in the Machinery Directive. With the GTV light from ROSE, the position of Panel PCs and control enclosures can be quickly and infinitely adjusted to the size of the respective operator. The system is extremely flexible and has many options such as an individual definition of the end stop and load range. In addition, the panel can be stopped in any desired position.

The GTV light suspension system is always in the optimal position

Thanks to the enormous flexibility, the GTV light is also ideally suited for applications with limited installation space: In these environments, the control enclosure is swiveled upwards out of the work area. Hence, the freedom of movement of the personnel is maintained. Typical areas of application for the height adjustment system are machine tools, packaging or printing machines. However, it is also used in assembly automation, automobile production or in the process industry. Since the GTV light is compatible with the GTN II equipment carrier system, it is very easy to integrate into new or existing machines. The quick opening cable duct enables the uncomplicated laying of cables which cannot be crushed due to the spatial separation of the duct from the mechanical components. With a weight of only 6 kg (400 mm version), the GTV light can be easily installed by a single person.

Ergonomic workstations: GTV light from ROSE

The height adjustment system is available in different versions with strokes of 400, 600 and 800 mm. It allows both hanging and standing mounting of the control enclosure. Components of the GTN II and GTS carrier systems can be used to connect panel PCs from Siemens, for example, and panels from Beckhoff and B&R via control-side adapters in the form of round tubes with a diameter of 48 mm. The robust material of the GTV light makes it possible to use the system in environments with temperatures of up to 80 °C. The protection class is IP54. The protection class IP54 ensures that ingress of dust and splash water does not impair the system’s functionality.

By integrating the GTV light height adjustment system from ROSE, machine builders can significantly upgrade their systems and offer their customers real added value.
