Perfectly set up with fingertip movement – PALcom P7 loader crane remote control
Comfort, safety and efficiency – PALFINGER offers these strengths with the new PALcom P7 loader crane remote control.
As an additional function of the PALcom P7, PALFINGER is launching the new P-Fold assistance system on the market exclusively for all cranes in the SH model series, from the PK 42002 SH to the flagship PK 200002 L SH.
The crane operator activates P-Fold using the PALcom P7 operating menu. After the assistance system is activated, the crane is set in motion by moving just one control lever. The intelligent P-Fold controls take over coordination of the crane movements until a defined working position is reached. After operation has ended, the crane can be folded down from any working position.
P-Fold then takes over coordination of all crane movements again and controls the additional foldable knuckle boom and rope winch as well. The operator controls the innovative system with just one control lever while the crane is folded down fully. Of course, the P-Fold system also works together with the new RTC (Rope Tension Control) system. Both systems perfectly support the crane’s set-up processes. This reduces set-up times to a minimum and prevents damage to the vehicle, load, rope and surrounding area. In addition to the significant increase in operator comfort and the prevention of costly damage, the new assistance system significantly reduces the crane’s set-up times.
This conserves valuable working and service life, which directly benefits the productivity of PALFINGER cranes. The P-Fold assistance system offers a unique method of operation and will be launched on the market for all SH cranes from PK 42002 SH to PK 200002 L SH in combination with the new PALcom P7 remote control at the end of 2014.
