At Ankomak in Istanbul, Hirschmann Mobile Machine Control Solutions (MCS) and its Turkish partner, Vincmak Ltd., together presented a safe load indication system that is especially well-suited for knuckle-boom cranes. Since cranes of this type are very common in Turkey, the iSCALE Control System met with great interest.
Hirschmann MCS and Vincmak Ltd. are well-known in the Turkish crane industry and enjoy a first-rate reputation. But that wasn’t the only reason that so many decision-makers from the construction sector visited their joint booth. Hirschmann MCS also showed how easy it is to implement complex control functions with the forward-looking iSCALE Control System. The reason is that this automation platform can now be programmed using the Codesys® library of programmable switching amplifier (PSA) functional modules. New customer requirements can usually be implemented right away, a fact that astonished trade visitors.
Because many knuckle-boom cranes are built in Turkey, the visitors were interested in getting further information about the iSCALE Control System. They were impressed by the flexibility and reliability of this innovative control solution.
The iSCALE Control System demonstrates the world market leader’s innovativeness in the realm of safe load indication for telescopic and lattice-boom cranes. It delivers a convincing answer to coming challenges such as the new EN ISO 13849-1 standard.
