Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1845004A1] The installation has a transfer circuit (18) connecting an up-line (16) and a down-line (17) of an overhead cable (10) with slowdown and acceleration sections (A, B) connected by a contour section (C). A spacer section (S2) is arranged in the circuit for separating cabins (14) and seats (15). The spacer section has a spacer unit constituted of a presence sensor, variable speed motor and a controller receiving a clock signal from a detector. The unit varies travel time of the spacer section by the cable and the seats for providing preset running spaces of the cabins and the seats.
