Slewing within the profile
Its special tiltable crane column gives the PR crane a small slewing radius and allows for slewing within the profile.
Unmatched in the trackside area
The PR crane stands out in the trackside area due to its unique features. Despite live overhead lines, the PR crane positions all loads in close proximity to the vehicle, thanks to its exceptional kinematics.
Autonomously detachable counterweight
For heavy-duty operations, the counterweight of the PR crane can be mounted and detached thanks to its exceptional kinematics by the crane itself. It enables performance improvements of up to 30 percent in terms of vehicle stability. For work without support legs, the counterweight is the perfect add-on for heavy lifts.
Removable crane operator cabin
The crane operator cabin BH258, specially designed for the PR crane, can be independently installed and deinstalled by the crane itself. The challenge of mulching work in the trackside area is effectively resolved for the crane operator
State-of-the-art technology in the crane operator's cabin
The newly developed cabin control allows for the effortless execution of complex work tasks. In addition to controlling the crane movements, the vehicle's drive can also be operated using the foot pedal
With the earthing of all components through highly flexible grounding cables, PALFINGER provides perfect protection against electric shocks. All components - from the base to the crane tip - are connected by 2x50mm² strong grounding cables. Transparent insulation material facilitates the inspection of grounding cables for breaks or damage caused by derived current (carbonization). Devices with a work basket are also equipped with grounding cables.
KombSmart Control System Ensures Stability by Balancing Overturning Moments of Crane and Access Platform
The combined use of PALFINGER railway devices achieves the highest efficiency. With its flexible adjustment method, PALFINGER enables the operation of multiple devices on one vehicle. The existing vehicle stability moment is perfectly distributed through communication between the devices.
Continuous lifting capacity optimization in inclination
The strengths of PALFINGER railway cranes come to the fore in operations at high track cants. State-of-the-art sensors incorporate the inclination in real time into the stability calculation. This allows the crane's lifting capacity to be continuously adjusted from 0° to 15°, eliminating the need for reducing I in general.
Vertical Movement Limiter according to EN-14033
The parametric Vertical Movement Limiter of the Railway Premium Line allows maximum range of motion with the highest level of safety. The limit-curve according to EN14033 is calculated based on specific track parameters and safety measures. To prevent safety-compromising movements, Paltronic dynamically detects the crane's position in real time using state-of-the-art sensors. With an extension, up to three height limit-curves can be stored in Paltronic.
Lateral Movement Limiter according to EN-14033
The parametric Lateral Movement Limiter of the Railway Premium Line allows maximum freedom of movement with the highest level of safety. The limit-curve is calculated based on the specific clearance profile and corresponding safety measures according to EN14033. State-of-the-art sensors combined with Paltronic ensure a PLd standard. With an extension, up to four different limit-curves can be stored in Paltronic.
Performance Level according to ISO 13849-1 is PLd
The Paltronic crane control system, combined with the connected sensor system, achieves Performance Level PLd and meets the high safety standards of railway norms.
