- Hydraulic systems
- Electronics and software
Together with our long-term customer we have developed a new version of a forestry forwarder used for thinning. The customer’s requirement was to modernise our time-proven concept and upgrade it not only with more advanced travel and work functions, but also simplify the electrical connection using as many CAN bus elements as possible.
The hydraulic travel system uses electrically-controlled hydroelectric generators and hydraulic motors of the H1 range for closed circuit, and the work functions are executed by the time-tested combination of the S45 hydroelectric generator and PVG 32 distributor.
The whole system uses micro-controllers which communicate with each other and with the machine’s combustion engine via several CAN buses. Tailored PLUS+1 software is used to control the travel and work functions as well as the cooling. In some of machines, a telematic solution is integrated for transmission of data from the machine, remote installation of new software and predictive servicing.
