l Rig inclination display

The rig inclination in x- and y- direction is shown on the cab screen in large letters and in crosshair.

l Automatic rig alignment

A push button automatically adjusts the rig to vertical position, independent of the current inclination.

l Automatic parallel adjustment of rig

A push button increases or reduces the rig radius, without modifying the adjusted inclination.

l Working depth indicator

The length of the unreeled rope is measured on the crowd winch and displayed in large letters on the cab

l Vibrator control
The vibrator control consists of stepless adjustment of the vibrator frequency, automatic clamping head
system and stepless adjustment of eccentrics.

l Interface for PDE

An interface transmits the data of the control system, e.g. working depth to the connected PDE system.

Litronic control system

PDE = Process data recording PDE - diagram
(additional equipment)

This module constantly calculates and stores

the current working processes.

Measurements are constantly calculated during the
working process.
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
are displayed on the monitor in the cab.
The operator can then control the process and,
if necessary, correct it.
Example of a protocol (in required language):
Working process interruption:
The working process and the measurement can be
interrupted at any time.
The measurements are automatically continued
upon resumption of work.

Storage of measurement and machine data:

All data are 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:
l client certifications
l conveying daily production data, down time, etc.
l Soil condition report.

8900 572 14 06/2002 Subject to change without notice.

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.
