Hirschmann system used on telescopic truck crane

Hirschmann system used on telescopic truck crane
Crane manufacturer Madal Palfinger has installed the Hirschmann mentor LMI on their newly introduced telescopic truck crane, the BR 400 (which is the same as the Sennebogen HPC 40). The crane has a capacity of up to 40 tons and a boom length of 37.5 m. The BR 400 complements their existing truck crane line which includes the MD 300 and MD 600.

The Hirschmann mentor provides the operator with a continuous display of the crane’s actual and allowable load, boom length, boom angle, and load radius. The system also includes an integrated bargraph which displays the crane’s utilization. The combination of the central unit being integrated into the console and the use of CAN Bus sensors provides for quick and easy installation. Set-up and calibration is done via the user-friendly console which also incorporates a large backlit LCD display with automatic contrast adjustment. Maintenance free sensors from the latest generation are connected via CAN-Bus and controlled by means of CANopen. The Hirschmann mentor also provides the flexibility of optional Working Area Definition (WADS), event recorder, and the use of wireless sensors.
