Parker-Hannifin is one of the leading companies in the mobile hydraulic motion and control equipment industry. It has a wide range of products in hydraulic-electronic control. In the Crane Management System prototype prepared by using MDL2 Master Display Module in IQAN Electronic Control System product family, we can see the pressure information, angles and load of all cylinders on the crane on the screen.
We can make programming and interface design with Parker’s IQAN Design program for developing the product. In addition to using the module as a master module, it can be extended with additional modules in very large and mixed systems. The modules communicate with the sensors via the industrial CAN-BUS data line. It also supports the J1939 line.
Data Collection from Working Area
Its 32-bit architecture has a processor running at 144MHz. It also has 16Mb flash memory to keep errors, events and usage log. This module is ideal for long time as a black box.
We can define more than one user to the Crane Management System, and we can give different powers to these users. In a crane operation, for example, there are 3 different crane operators using that crane. Each operator is logged in with his username and password and using his crane with his powers. In addition, faulty usage and accidents are also logged with the user’s name.
