The vehicle system SpeedPorter® developed by RBS combines state-of-the art drive technology with a high conveying efficiency and a quiet operation.

RBS Förderanlagen Electro Monorail System / Vehicle System /Shuttle SpeedPorter®


Induction lines supply energy to the individual vehicles and avoid wear and abrasion. Vehicle communication is contactless with slotted hollow conductors, a reliable and disturbance-insensitive transmission medium.

Control and communication are implemented by the RBS developed Vehicle Coordination System (VCS). This systems is the link between the superordinated storage management system and the individual vehicles. The VCS software includes the visualization on a touchscreen and informs the operators about all system conditions.

To ensure a high conveying efficiency and a smooth operation, the lines are equipped with distribution gates. With a changeover time of only 2 seconds, the newly RBS developed distribution gate allows, even with a 1:1 distribution, a reliable performance of up to 450 vehicles per hour.

To optimize the line load, the vehicles are constantly in contact with each other. As a result, the speeds are autonomously adjusted to the requirements and the distribution gates are changed over to the correct direction in due time. Due to the high positioning accuracy, the vehicles can be moved with small distances to the infeed and discharge points.
