Slew Safe 

 

The newest safety innovation for the PC-25 which turns the corner on pick and carry crane operator safety.

 

TIDD PC25 is the only pick and carry crane system with this level of safety and it has been designed to save lives.

Slew Safe simply and effectively allows the TIDD PC25 operator to pick and carry a load knowing that they will be warned and restricted if they get into a situation that triggers an overload notification.

Slew Safe delivers peace of mind for drivers, dogman, crane owners and site owners, with improved safety, risk management and duty of care.


How Slew Safe Works

 

When the crane is operated in the GREEN and AMBER areas of the lifting chart, Slew Safe will remain inactive.

When the crane in operation moves from green and amber to RED, this is an overload notification (based on the lifting chart).  This will activate the Slew Safe.

 


 

Activation of Slew Safe 

 

Once slew safe is activated it will do the following:

  • Reduce the speed of the steering to 15% 
  • Make the steering harder with feedback through the steering wheel to operator
  • The engine will “load up” making an audible sound change for the operator
  • The audible constant alarm inside and outside cabin to warn operator and dogman of the immanent overload.
  • Retain ability to move back to safe operation zone GREEN
