IC-1 PLUS – The new capacity calculating system from Terex
Many Terex cranes come standard with the field-proven IC-1 control system, which offers efficient and intuitive touchscreen operation and stores all load charts. The new IC-1 Plus control system now implements an additional value to your crane as it enables it to perform more jobs.
Promote safe use
The IC-1 Plus control system features an enhanced visualization to provide the crane operator with additional information on capacity in relation to boom position. This colored visualization of the work area capacity results in improved safety.
• Movement speeds reduced prior to auto shut off
• Auto shut off of movements prior to unsafe condition
• Pre-calculation of:
Max capacity for +/- 30° slewing angle and luffing area (depending on boom length)
• Pre-calculation visible on control screen
Use your maximum lifting capacity
The IC-1 Plus control system calculates lifting capacities for every position of the boom subject to the slewing angle of the superstructure. This enables you to use your maximum lifting capacity especially when lifting over the outriggers. The effect is even higher with reduced outrigger settings and reduced counterweight.
Due to this real time calculation the lifting capacity for a defined radius is no longer limited to the minimum value of a pre-calculated 360° lifting capacity: Capacities are calculated in real time in the cab. Your crane can perform jobs where higher capacity cranes are typically needed.
Reduce your transport costs
With the IC-1 Plus control system you can increase lifting capacity while using less counterweight compared to 360° capacities. This results in reduced transport costs.
Improve versatility in narrowest jobsites
Due to lifting with asymmetric outrigger setup the crane can work in confi ned spaces without losing lifting capacity. It increases your crane’s versatility and enables you to do more jobs.
Unlock all advantages with graphical job planning:
Planning / simulation of lift from operator cab
– Usage of touch screen to select load case
– Real time calculation of lifting capacity for determination of set up position
