THE new TEC-RANGE
Let's start with the PALTRONIC 180 control electronics. This world innovation allows new smart functions that have never been seen before and gives the crane more intelligence for even more efficient and easier operations:
- The best possible leveled truck is the basis for maximum stability and efficient crane operation. The Leveling Assistant now supports the crane operator in the stabilizing process and optimally levels the truck. The process is semi-automatic with the operation of just one lever-movement.
- With Smart Control, the operator controls the crane tip with just one lever instead of controlling individual functions.
- With Memory Position, store up to 4 crane positions and operate them again and again with only 2 levers.
In addition, the PALTRONIC 180 offers our crane operators additional comfort and assistance systems for even more performance:
- P-Fold provides convenient unfolding and folding of the TEC crane with just one lever movement.
- The Rope Tension Control (RTC) ensures that the rope length is automatically adjusted to the respective crane movements and offers perfect interaction with P-Fold.
- The Synchronised Rope Control (SRC) automatically adjusts the rope length and maintains a constant distance between the pulley head and hook block during rope lengthening or shortening crane movements.
- DPS-Plus & DPS-C provide even more lifting power at the fly jib in any position of the crane.
- HPSC-Plus LOAD reacts to the loading condition of the truck and calculates the maximum outreach with the load on the hook according to the situation based on the inclination of the crane, ensuring optimal utilization of the working area, even with limited outrigger possibilities.
- HPSC-Plus GEOM enables accurate calculation of the center of gravity of the extensions and load even in the most limited spaces, as the exact position of the extension boom system is known through the length measuring system, and so is the tilting moment at maximum utilization of the TEC crane's lifting capacity.
- HPSC-Plus FSTAB brings enhanced performance to the TEC crane through the support force detection.
- The AOS anti-oscillation system developed by PALFINGER prevents the load from oscillating during rapid stopping or load changes, and the system is also beneficial when emptying big bags.
- Soft Stop ensures smooth braking of crane movements before the end stop.
- MEXT guarantees that mechanical crane extensions are detected by the crane's sensor system and integrated into the overload protection system.
- The MFAJ function allows the setup status of the MFA jib to be detected in the crane control system. This offers the possibility to consider and secure the MFA jib in the overload calculation of the crane.
- WEIGH weighs the load directly at the crane tip and can sum up to 10 loads and display them conveniently via the PALCom P7 radio remote control.
LX-6 Control valve
The sensitive control of the new TEC-Range is only made possible by the ultimate LX-6 control valve. In combination with our specially developed PALcom P7 radio remote control, this gives our crane operators the best control over their TEC loader crane. Every movement is thus even more sensitive and, above all, faster than ever before.
The PALcom P7 radio remote control is particularly ergonomic and not only guarantees fatigue-free operating, it also enables the use of a wide range of innovative assistance systems. A "PALdrive" rotary button centrally located on the radio remote control and intuitive menu navigation with a large color display enable simple and safe operation. In addition to the visual signals provided by the large color display, the P7 remote control panel also provides acoustic and haptic signals. This allows the crane operator to maintain an overview of the overall situation at all times. The operating levers are designed as joysticks or are available as linear controls.
TEC's signature feature is the polygonal P-profile of the entire extension boom system. It makes the crane models particularly light. This often means that significantly more payload can be carried on the truck. The higher stability of the extensions up to the crane tip is also characteristic of TEC cranes and enables our crane operators to work even more precisely. In addition, the P profile is particularly low-maintenance.
