Urban cable railways have – unlike alpine cable railways – a high requirement for the material. Common reverse bending on the rope and long opening hours make it difficult for the staff to check the running rope. With the Winspect® rope inspection system the two structurally indentical cable railways can be checked fast and uncomplicated before or after the end of business hours.
