New 'Prolec Machine Engine'

The new “Prolec Machine Engine” (PME) is a modular electronic system designed to capture machine, position and load data for construction and demolition equipment, and can be configured to optimize machine safety while enabling the operator to work more efficiently and profitably.

Until now, machine monitoring solutions have tended to be application specific, and have thus worked using a dedicated in-cab box with limited expansion capability. By contrast, the recently launched PME is designed to take specific machine data and make it generic, regardless of the task required. All that is required is a simple software upgrade.

At the heart of the system is the safety controller, which features numerous input and output connectors, into which information from sensors is delivered. Operating parameters can be set, along with a choice of action such as an audible warning or motion cut-outs. PME can run a vast number of applications including lifting, height, slew and cab protection, motion restriction, overturning and load movement, reach control and stability.
