P.A.E. s.r.l. is an electronics company based in San Benedetto del Querceto, in the province of Bologna. It engineers and produces a vast range of controls for motors and various accessories designed in particular for the movement of building yard and bridge cranes and lifting equipment in general.
Its origins may be traced back to more than 40 years ago, when the company’s present sole director, Luigi Incutto, began operating in the building crane sector through a company bearing his name, based in Casalecchio di Reno (Bologna), specialising among other things as a spare parts dealer.
In the 1980s the first SCR electronic control systems began to appear, gradually becoming the company’s forte, while toward the end of the 1990s the company began designing inverters, following its move to the present premises in San Benedetto del Querceto and its conversion into a limited liability company.
At present P.A.E. boasts a range of electronic products capable of meeting practically 100% of the needs of anyone who builds lifting equipment.
In the sector of motor controls, its products range from simple voltage dividers to state-of-the-art frequency converters (inverters) available in single, double or triple configurations, all featuring specific programs for rotation, trolleys, lifting, traversing etc.
To control the rotation of large cranes it offers the dynamic brake, a unique system conceived by PAE which, used in conjunction with an inverter, provides effective control even in difficult conditions.
The available accessories include load cells, various types of display devices, load limiters with 3 or 5 programmable thresholds, anti-collision systems and more.
We can also supply complete kits for the movement of a crane, i.e. motors, reduction units and winches plus a pre-wired electric control panel incorporating programmed inverters, both in a complete version for new cranes and a single-inverter version for upgrading existing cranes.
