Electric drive systems

Liebherr develops a wide range of application-specific drive systems, such as for construction and container cranes.

The range of services includes the following controllers and systems:

  • Safety-related control systems (central and decentralized)
  • Controls for limiting working range and patented load torque monitoring in construction cranes
  • Control system for automatic adjustment of mobile cranes
  • Special frequency converter controls for hoisting and slewing mechanisms
  • Simulations of complex electromechanical systems
  • GPS-based control systems
  • Accurate positioning systems (e.g. positioning trucks under container cranes)
  • Energy storage systems with double-coated capacitors
