Climb Auto System

Improving Health & Safety, Turbine Uptime and Employee Retention

No more climbing – thanks to the 3S Lift Climb Auto System. This single-technician ladder-mounted climber can transport personnel & equipment and eliminates the need for climbing. It allows technicians to reach the top of a wind turbine in 5 minutes, with zero sweat.

Add Value to Your Business

Retrofit Installation in 8 Hours or Less
The Climb Auto System can be easily retrofitted to almost any wind turbine in 8 hours or less. Because the CAS is mounted to the existing ladder, installation typically requires no structural changes.

Increased Uptime
The Climb Auto System allows technicians to ascend more towers per day, compared to Climb Assist or manual climbing. Necessary maintenance is completed in a timelier manner, leading to increased uptime, extended turbine life and lower operational costs.

Improved Health & Safety
The repetitive motion of climbing towers puts extraordinary strain on the body of technicians. With the Climb Auto System, technicians can safely reach the top of a tower putting zero stress on their muscles and joints.

Improved Employee Retention
The Climb Auto System improves technician satisfaction, resulting in more competent and longer tenured employees. The higher employee retention leads to lower turnover costs.

Product Details

Top Sheave

The top sheave’s compact design allows the CAS car to reach the uppermost platform.

Operator’s Personal Fall Arrester

The fall protection system of the CAS is independent from the operator’s fall arrester.

Climb Auto System’s Fall Protection Device

Redundant fall protection guarantees the safety of personnel and equipment.

Control Cabinet

Located down-tower, the control cabinet is used to power the system up and down. It can also be used to operate the CAS car remotely.

Remote Control

The convenient remote control feature allows technicians to call the car to their position in the tower or send equipment to a co-worker on another platform.

Two-Handle Start-Up Switch

To use the CAS car, the operator must press and hold the switches on both handles simultaneously.

Collapsible Footboards

The collapsible footboards enable rapid evacuation in case of emergency.

Bottom Sensing Panel

When coming in contact with an obstacle, the panel is compressed and the sensor is triggered. This immediately stops the CAS car, thus preventing collision.
