Surveys of top mobile machine manufacturers show that the number of sensors used per vehicle is growing quickly. Trends are “towards higher system and function integration (preferably by embedding sensor technology into the mechanical body of the machine) and the use of multiple sensors.”
See the new line of dual-output pressure transmitters measures oil pressure and temperature to protect machines against damage caused by overheating.
In telescopic load-handling applications, for example, truck-mounted cranes, machine stability must be ensured at all times. Interlocks are used to ensure legs are deployed before extension can take place. Simple cartridge pressure switches have been used but these can give field reliability problems in terms of the drift of the switch point, leakage and relatively high hysteresis. The accuracy and reliability of pressure transmitters offers a more robust solution – while an endurance limit of one millions cycles is a challenge for mechanical switches, it is no problem for an electronic solution. Further advantages are mechanical shock and overpressure capability.

The SL6000 lattice boom crawler crane will make its US tradeshow debut. As standard it has an 84 meter maximum main boom, 108 meter maximum long boom and a luffer option of 60 meter main boom plus 72 meter luffing jib. The Super Heavy Lift configuration (which includes HL mast and an additional 250 metric tons of palette counterweight) – 84 meter maximum standard boom, 126 meter maximum long boom and a luffer option of 84 meter main boom plus 84 meters of luffing jib.
For transport the largest individual part is the 3 meter wide carbody and upper structure weighing 64 metric tons. That can be broken down into 41 and 23 metric ton sections. By removing the mast assembly with an ‘easy-attachment' system, it can be further reduced to 32 metric tons.
Each crawler track assembly weighs 40 metric tons and the boom and jib sections can be nested for transport. The winches are in the lower boom which reduces the transportation weight of the base machine.
Also on show will be the 100 US ton capacity CK1000-III and 250 US ton CK2500-II capacity models.

Gold Lot G-370
Some 27 Liebherr products from the full range of construction equipment will be on display. In the crane sector will be wheeled mobiles, crawlers and two towers.
The highlight will be the new 600 metric ton capacity LR 1600/2 lattice boom crawler crane. Primary characteristics of the new model, according to Liebherr, are outstanding load capacities, variable boom and derrick systems, and components with weights and sizes that have been optimized for economical transportation.
This new crane achieves its 600 metric ton maximum load capacity with a 48 meter main boom and derrick system at a 10 meter working radius. Maximum load moment is 8,085 ton-meters and the maximum boom and jib combination, or system, length is 180 meters.
Cost efficiency in wind turbine assembly operations was a vital criterion in the development of the LR 1600/2. The SL main boom can be erected up to a length of 102 meters without a derrick system. Developed from this system, a 108 meter SL system with a 12 meter fixed jib is available, which, again without a derrick or second crane, can be erected up to an under-hook height of 117 meters.
Load capacity in this configuration is more than 95 metric tons, making it suitable for mounting wind turbines in the 3 MW class on 100 meter towers. Using the derrick system, the same turbines can be mounted on 120 meter towers. The SL system also offers operators the advantage of being able to ‘nest' the boom sections (insert them inside one another) for transport, thereby reducing overall transport volume.
The new LR 1600/2 is powered by a six cylinder Liebherr diesel. Up to six winches are available and the two hoisting winches have 180 kN line pull with 28 mm diameter rope. The sixth winch with 25 millimeter diameter rope is optimized for the use of whip lines.
The other crawler crane on show will be the 100 metric ton capacity LTR 1100 with telescopic boom. The hybrid design “unites the advantages of a telescopic crane and those of conventional crawler cranes.” It has a 52 meter boom developed from an LTM series all terrain mobile crane. The LTR 1100 is powered by a 149 kW Liebherr four-cylinder diesel engine and the winches have an 88 kN line pull for fast work cycles.
Mobile cranes on show will be the 130 metric ton capacity LTM 1130-5.1 all terrain on five axles and the LTF 1045-4.1. It is a development of the upper works from the three axle LTM 1045-3.1 all terrain mounted on a Kenworth four axle commercial truck chassis-cab from the US.
On show from the tower crane ranges will be two large models, one in the 355 ton-meter class, the other in the 550 ton-meter class. New features on the 355 HC-L 16/32 Litronic luffing jib crane include the SPS control system, which, for example, allows horizontal movement of the load. As the jib is moved, the control system operates the lifting gear automatically so that hook height remains constant.
Other innovative details on the 355 HC-L are the bolted- on climbing console, and rapid re-reeving from a single to a double rope run. The climbing console can be detached for transport. This reduces the transport dimensions and weight of the slewing ring support to be suitable for container transport.
The large 550 EC-H 20 Litronic crane will be a 20 metric ton version but 12 and 40 metric ton versions are also available. The crane exhibited has free movement up to a hook height of 86.9 meters and an undercarriage with a track width of 10 meters.
The Litronic crane control is a system of electronic function modules. Installed as standard are the LMB load-torque limiter, the ABB working-range limiter and MDA machine data evaluation. The AKS anti-collision system and the electrical connection unit for the worldwide Teleservice link can be installed as optional extras.

New is the CCDock contactless charging system for use with the T110C transmitter for radio remote control. Users can charge the transmitter without any mechanical electrical contacts.
The T110C transmitter is a hand-held remote control for truck mounted cranes, service cranes and others. As a battery-powered transmitter, the predecessor to the T110C was charged using a dash cradle with standard electrical pronged contacts.
While the dash cradle was generally fine, in some industries (such as concrete) the metal contacts of the transmitter would get blocked with concrete and grime that had to be cleaned off before charging.
Now magnetic induction is used to charge the batteries instead of a mechanical connection. An electromagnet inside the charger creates a magnetic field that acts on the electromagnet inside the transmitter to induce a current and charge the batteries.

Orlaco Crane Cam
Blue Lot B-957b
Load view crane camera and monitor systems enable crane operators to see the load and the path of the load at all times. These can be areas that would otherwise be blind spots.
Benefits include less risk of a catastrophic accident, the opportunity for a better safety record, controlled insurance costs, less lost time and down time due to accidents, reduced collateral damage, and a healthier work environment.
In addition, there are cost savings as the job can be performed quicker and, in some cases, without the use of an additional signaller, because the operator can see what is happening around the load.
