A single run of overhead track on which carriers (trolleys) travel.
An electrical railway in which a rail car or train of cars is suspended from or straddles a guideway formed by a single beam or rail. Most monorails are either heavy rail or automated guideway systems. (APTA1) A single rail on which a vehicle or train of cars travels. (DOI3)
Large format camera (usually, though there are medium format examples) constructed on an " optical bench " principle with front and rear standards on a rail.
A transit mode that is an electric railway of guided transit vehicles operating individually or in multi-car trains. The transit vehicles are suspended from or straddle a guideway formed by a single beam, rail or tube. Examples include the Jacksonville Skyway and the Walt Disney World® Monorail system.
a railway having a single track
a metro or railroad with a track consisting of a single rail (actually a beam), as opposed to the traditional track with two parallel rails
a rail system with a single rail
An elevated urban transit system that runs on one rail.
A single rail support for a material handling system. Normally a standard hot-rolled I-Beam.
An electrical railway in which a car or train of cars is suspended from or straddles a fixed guideway formed by a single beam or rail (or tube). Most monorails are either heavy rail systems or automated guideway systems. (APTA)
A single rail support for a material handling system or crane.
A transit system using vehicles that run on a fixed rail or beam.
Describes automated and mechanical transport systems. An elevated conveying system consisting of a rail and load-transporting carrier. The rails typically enclose chain, driven by a motor with mechanisms to engage and transport carriers. Automated Electrified Monorail (AEM) and Electrified Monorail Systems (EMS) provide a supporting rail with continuous electrical feeds. The carriers and off-board controls provide responsive flexibility of pathing and load-handling including automated loading and unloading.
A track hung from the underside of a roof, usually an I section along which a lifting appliance travels (Run way beam).
The term monorail or industrial monorail is used to describe any number of systems in which a chair or carrier is suspended from, or rides on, an overhead rail structure for the limited transportation of goods, passengers or workers.
