Title: POSITIONING SYSTEM FOR A CONTAINER CRANE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a positioning system for a container crane (1), which can travel along a route (T) on rails (4) or wheels, wherein the container crane (C) reaches over an alley (Gi=1-4) in which containers (1) can be stacked one behind the other and adjacent to each other on container footprints (Ac) in rows (Rj=1-8) and columns (SPj=1-9), wherein a position detection system (PE) is arranged along the route (T) for the positioning system, by means of which the container crane (1) can determine the position thereof along the route (T) or the alley (Gi=1-4), wherein a position encoder (PGk=1-8) is provided in addition to the position detection system (PE) for detection of the individual rows (Rj=1-8).
