                • Increased productivity
                  Higher speeds and faster acceleration rates can be used. Better positioning accuracy as the load is not swaying when travel motion is stopped..
                • Increased safety
                  Crane operator can focused on safety of load handling while not worrying about the load swing. Reduced risk of collisions due to reduced load sway..
                • Less training needed for crane operators
                  to reach proficient level of positioning accuracy and load handling safety.

                The electronic Sway Control load-sway protection feature prevents harmful load peaks and therefore reduces the stress exerted on both electrical and mechanical components. This cuts the time and money spent on maintenance. The crane is easy to control and allows the load to be placed in just the rightposition. The crane operator can focus his concentration entirely on the load and does not have to take into consideration the cross and long travelling movements. This represents a considerable saving in time and enhances the safety of the operation in progress.

                Sway Control monitors all movements as well as lifting height (sway length), speed of travel and the load carried. The system uses these values to regulate acceleration and braking curves correspondingly, thus preventing sway on the load suspended.
              • Tandem operation

              • for hoists and cranes

                Simultaneous operation with two or more hoists
                This system is used where loads have to be transported with more than one lifting-gear unit at the same time and delivered to an exact spot. Up to four units can be controlled by the crane operator in tandem operation at the same time. In this way the hoists start and stop at exactly the same time during the lifting and lowering process.
