HPSC-Plus LOAD is the first module in an innovative modular system to expand the HPSC stability control from PALFINGER. Load detection takes inclination as an additional parameter for stability and thereby optimises the crane’s performance.
PALFINGER has continued development on the tried-and-tested HPSC (high-performance stability control) system and is now offering additional application-orientated functions in a modular system. The first module from this HPSC-Plus concept is HPSC-Plus LOAD. It reacts to the truck’s load situation and uses the inclination as a basis for calculating the maximum load limit suitable for the situation in question. This means that the crane’s reach and thus its performance can be optimised depending on load.
The trick is how two systems interact
Unfortunately, inclination alone does not allow any direct conclusions to be drawn regarding stability. Especially when a vehicle is not carrying any load, it cannot be used to calculate an efficient stability model. Consequently, it is necessary to combine two systems.
In the case of vehicles with load situations that change frequently, inclination can be used as an additional parameter for stability. However, this does require that a system independent of inclination is already available. Which is why PALFINGER continues using the proven HPSC system and its stability load limit, adding the second load limit which implies the inclination as a technical indicator for increasing stability.
Irrespective of whether the vehicle is unloaded, partially loaded or fully loaded, or if it is used for transport of building materials, gravelling or unloading up front over the cabin. Using the load as a ballast, HPSC and LOAD automatically take on the task of stability monitoring, as required. Therefore, the crane provides continuously the maximal reach.
HPSC-Plus LOAD is available for the SH and TEC 7 range. Technical requirements are the Paltronic 150 and the radio remote control PALcom P7.
HPSC-Plus LOAD is only the first module in an innovative kit. Furthermore, FSTAB and GEOM are two modules which complement the HPSC-Plus system and enable to tailor the existing stability control system for use in individual situations.
