Manitou is offering, as standard, the attachment-recognition system (E-Reco) on its new-generation ranges of rotative telescopic trucks MRT EASY and MRT PRIVILEGE +, recently presented at BAUMA last April.
The system uses RFID radio-identification technology, very widely used in industry and volume retailing. This autonomous technique can recover and record data remotely. The machine detects the attachment at the head of the boom, analyses its data and directly proposes the corresponding working configuration.
This technology provides the load chart in real time, taking into account the rotation angle of the turret and the position of the machine’s stabilisers, in accordance with the standard relative to mobile cranes.
"Simple and intuitive, it lets all MRT users work easily while making best use of the machine’s potential. The automatic calculation of the load chart, adapted to the attachment in place, safely optimises the use of the rotative telescopic truck", says Olivier Vasseur, Product Line Manager Attachments.
The ranges of attachments that are not equipped with the attachment-recognition system can benefit from this technology simply by adapting RFID kits.
All attachments offered by Manitou follow a complete process of validation (structural calculation, hydraulic and thermal assessment, analysis of risks and load chart) to ensure maximum safety for the user and an optimised machine/attachment pair.
