Hirschmann Introduces iVISOR Load Moment Indicator

Chambersburg, Pa.-based Hirschmann Automation and Control has introduced the iVISOR mentor QVGA (graphic) load moment indicator (LMI) for mobile cranes. The iVISOR mentor QVGA provides the operator with a graphic display of the crane and the current load and geometric information, including the actual and allowable load, boom length, boom angle, and load radius. The display also includes an integrated bar graph that provides the operator with information on the crane's utilization. The graphic display has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and includes BestVIEW technology which automatically adjusts the contrast depending on the temperature and lighting conditions.

The system's central processing unit and operator's console are integrated into one compact unit making for quick and easy installation. In addition to the freely programmable control functionality, two CANopen interfaces enable networking with other controls and displays. The LMI system can be used as a CANopen master or as a CANopen slave. It can also communicate with other CANbus capable devices via the CANbus interfaces which support the CANopen protocol and J1939.

The iVISOR mentor QVGA also provides the flexibility of optional Working Area Definition (WADS), event recorder, and the use of wireless sensors.
