Description / Abstract:

This Standard applies to rope drives of cranes (see DIN 15001) and of serial lifting appliances (see DIN 15 100) of all types.

It does not apply to rope drives with friction pulley drive, to rope drives for excavators, elevators, aerial ropeways and winding engines, nor does it apply to rope drives on board ships with the exception of deck cranes.

Wire ropes which do not run on rope drums and/or over rope pulleys (carrying ropes and tensioning ropes) and sling ropes are not dealt with in this Standard.


The purpose of the procedure for the calculation of rope drives recommended in this Standard is to ensure an adequate degree of safety of operation of the lifting appliance and to achieve an adequate service life for the wire ropes used.
