In 1999, Doppelmayr introduced a worldwide unique, fail-safe system that monitors the position of the haul rope directly at the sheave assemblies of ropeway installations. To this day, the rope position detection system (RPD) is the unrivaled safety standard for ropeways. It recognizes rope displacement from the sheave groove at an early stage and thus significantly reduces the risk of deropement.


Twenty years later, Doppelmayr/Garaventa has launched a complete redevelopment onto the market: the RPD Nexo system. This innovation brings ropeway operators absolute operational efficiency, high availability of the ropeway installation and maximum safety for passengers – perfectly in line with SMART Ropeway, the digitalization concept of Doppelmayr/Garaventa.


A new brochure and an animation clearly show the advantages of the RPD Nexo System – for example, the extensive diagnostic functions in combination with Doppelmayr Connect or resistance to environmental influences of any kind.
