Disney Magic & Ride Automation Combine to Create Speed & Smiles
A peak behind the scenes of the Radiator Springs Racers Ride
The Radiator Springs Racers innovative ride control design is enough to make any automation professional giddy as a child.
For the main attraction, the Radiator Springs Racers ride uses Siemens Industry Inc.’s (www.usa.siemens.com) Simatic S7 319F failsafe controller, Sinamics G120 variable-frequency drives (VFDs) on the actual cars and Scalence W wireless access points.
Disney adopted a Siemens design with a two-piece setup for the power and control of the cars using the Siemens’ Sinamics G120 VFD for the
power module. Under the car’s hood a programmable logic controller (PLC) sits on top of the VFD, which controls the motor and provides the power. The PLC communicates to ride control via the Universal Serial Interface (USS) protocol and analog signals to the VFD.
