Spectacular goals and emotions running high - over the past weeks, impressive images from Brazil have delighted football fans all over the world.

In the camera systems by Spidercam®, proven ROBA-stop®-silenzio® brakes from mayr® power transmission ensure the maximum possible functionality and operating safety. They hold the camera safely in position, ensuring that it comes to a halt, for example, during a power failure. During the world championships in Brazil, a total of nine Spidercam® systems were put into operation for transmission of the football games. On these cable camera robots, the camera carrier, the dolly, is supported by four cables. In addition, four electrical winches are mounted in each corner of the stadium. The dolly can be freely moved in all directions through controlled winding and unwinding of the winches,.

Indispensable for smooth operation
Safety is of great importance, especially when the camera runs above the audience and players. Therefore, the ROBA-stop®-silenzio® brakes ensure that the cameras do not drop uncontrolled. The electromagnetic safety brakes are installed in the four winches and feature a spring applied function principle. This means that the brakes close when the power is disconnected. In case of a power failure or an emergency stop, the brakes provide reliable hold for the cameras in any position. Two independently operating brake circuits ensure this maximum operating safety. The maintenance-free and easy-to-install ROBA-stop®-silenzio® brakes are the quietest safety brakes on the market - even after several hundred thousand switching operations. They meet the stringent requirements of the BGV C1 professional association regulations.
