The cable way is of the 8-MGD type (Mono-cable Gondola detachable for 8 persons / per gondola). The enclosed cabins, highly comfortable, provide full protection against the elements, and are designed with a strong focus on the special needs of families and the elderly.
The 30 cabins, called “gondola”, on line, during their ride, are attached to the haul rope with detachable grips for safe ride and easy loading and unloading.
The grip, during the ride is closed on the rope and is open in stations and in parking area. It has two jaws: a fixed jaw and a movable one. The grip force is generated by torsion bar springs.
The grip is of compact design and protected against atmospheric influences, for use in temperatures – 30° C and + 50 º C.It closes in exit of the stations and opens in entrance of the stations. The doors of cabins are locked automatically before exit (before the closing of the grip) and are opened automatically after the entrance (after the opening of the grip). The cabins, reaching the stations, to be free from the rope (that continues to move with the same selected speed), detach and, being free, are pushed by a conveyor of wheels with transmission belts, decreasing the speed from 6 or 4,5 to…3, 2, 1…0.3 m / s to be, in such a way, comfortable for unloading.
They continue with this decreasing speed, to be, in such a way comfortable for loading, up to the moment of automatically closing the door. After this moment they are pushed by the other conveyor of wheels, increasing gradually the speed from 0.3….1…2…3 up to the selected speed for operation, to have, in such a way, in the exit the same speed of rope. On line the cabins, attached to the rope, travel with a selected speed up to 6 m /s. The gondola will travel in a distance of 300 m between each other within 80 seconds. In the full occupation of all gondolas, at the same time will travel 248 persons.
