HAINZL developed a standalone electro-hydraulic control system for forestry cranes. This system is used in forestry cabin cranes. The major benefit of the new steering system is the time saved during assembly, commissioning and service, due to the customer friendly Plug & Play principle. Settings can be entered via a display panel. To control the crane, there are two joysticks based on fieldbus communication. The valve control block specially developed for mobile use can be mounted on the outside of the vehicle adjacent to the proportional valve. All parameter signals - with ramps and limits - are transmitted to the crane's hydraulics. The control can be configured individually for different users.
