SmartBOARD, control and driving tool

SEMER was inspired by the varied needs of operators to develop the SmartBOARD, an intelligent, ergonomic and aesthetic control and driving tool for ropeway systems; the centralised functionalities and the precise information delivered allow greater responsiveness in decision-making, for redesigned operating and maintenance comfort; the essential objective remains, of course, the safety of users.


DirectDrive®, the virtuous motor

The DirectDrive motor owes its success to its simplicity and modularity. The drives are assembled and adjusted entirely by SEMER engineers.

DirectDrive technology offers multiple advantages: high availability, operating comfort and reduced maintenance, reduced environmental footprint and greater efficiency.

EcoDRIVE® function

Integrated into the ropeway driver’s station, EcoDRIVE mode automatically regulates the speed of the system according to the number of people who are about to use it. The setting is determined so as to ensure the comfort of passengers on-line, and an acceptable waiting time. For the operator, it generates significant energy savings.


ProTEC maintenance radio remote control

Approved by STRMTG and recognised by CARSAT, ProTEC is the ideal tool developed by SEMER to protect workers during maintenance operations in the vicinity of moving parts. ProTEC is the only radio remote control with positive safety (instantaneous shutdown of the installation if the trigger is released, ensuring worker protection in the event of a problem).
