PDE - Process data recording (Additional equipment)
This module constantly calculates and stores the current working processes.

Measurements PDE - diagram

Measurements are constantly calculated during the working
No special measuring process is required. External systems
can also be connected to the system.

Display of measurement data

Measurement data relevant to the working process is displayed
on the monitor in the cab.
The operator can then control the process and, if necessary,
correct it.

Working process interruption

The working process and the measurement can be interrupted at
any time.
The measurements are automatically continued upon External sensors

machine data
All data is stored on a memory card. This can be read via a PC.
Thereby an evaluation and processing of data can also be
performed at a later time. For example, for:

Printing data
A protocol can be printed out from the cab printer after each
working process.

Data transmission
A GSM modem can be connected to the PDE making long
distance data transmission possible.
