Title: SYSTEM OF ORIENTABLE CABINS FOR PASSENGERS
Abstract:
A system of orientable cabins for the transport of people, applied on a load bearing frame (4) positioned on a trolley (2) of a ropeway system of the funicular type comprises at least two cabins (15) applied on an orientable floor (16) for keeping the cabin floor always horizontal with the variation of the inclination of the ropes, the cabins being able to vary their inclination for passing a hillock, every cabin (15) having on every side thereof, an inclined door (66) with the aim to reduce a lateral load of the wind. Each cabin has a load bearing frame (17), on which the plate of flooring (16) of the cabin (15) is bolted and has on every side one group (19, 20) that has a support and rotation function. The two support groups (19, 20) are assembled on both sides on the right and left of the cabin load bearing frame (17), the first support group being equipped with a toothed wheel (23) joined at an encoder pinion, the second support group being equipped with a cam (35) that allows making the zero setting when the cabin floor is parallel to the loading bearing frame (4), the same function being made by an inclinometer device (53).
