Lattice Boom CranePrecise positioning of the load

At a glance

  • Load moment indication system
  • Processing of analog and digital inputs
  • Force measurement via load cells
  • Angle measurement
  • Direct force measurement

Safe and efficient

System solutions from Hirschmann MCS offer maximum safety for the demanding deployment of mobile lattice boom cranes in robust environments. The booms, which are combined from lattice sections, enable a large number of operating modes.

The stability of the crane is ensured by monitoring counter weights, counter jibs and the maximum load. Via force measurement, angle measurement and pressure measurement safe operation on construciton sites ist ensured. Tipping over of the crane is prevented according to the standard EN 13000.
