Together with our holding Huppenkothen, we have developed the lift and slew restriction system HUPPtronic for excavators. The lift and slew system is very easy to install and consists of only one sensor. The sensor is attached to the excavator’s boom and covers all directions. The system comprises a ready to use harness and a display with a holding device. It is designed for universal use, which means it can be installed at any excavator, regardless of the brand and model and no matter whether it is an electric or diesel excavator. It can be extended by further sensors, which gets necessary if you deal with an adjustable boom. Lift and slew restriction systems are mainly used for work near railroad tracks, because in that case a restriction of the excavator’s movement is essential to avoid contact with the overhead lines and thus to guarantee safe operation.
