Hirschmann Automation and Control has introduced the iVISOR mentor EI65 indicator system for mobile cranes. It provides a continuous display of actual load and allowable load, boom angle, boom length, radius, parts of line, and alerts the operator to an impending two block condition.
All setup and calibration is done through the user-friendly console. The operator can preset limits for all geometric and load variables with an audible and visual warning when these limits are reached; this function provides the operator with additional information when operating in areas of limited headroom or proximity to buildings, electric transmission lines, etc.
The large backlit display incorporates BestView - Adaptive display control for optimal readability. The iVISOR mentor EI65 incorporates CANbus technology for all sensors, plus the load is measured with either an SKM running line tensiometer or a dead end force transducer. The system is also designed as an upgrade, with the latest technology, to existing EI65 systems that are currently in the field.
In addition, the iVISOR mentor EI65 meets industry standards for indicating devices, as a new system and as an upgrade to an existing EI65 system.
