The Kranskan™ with Control Function
As an extra safety measure, the Kranskan™ indicator can be provided with a cut-out feature. When the crane reaches the maximum load moment, or when the vessel reaches the maximum permitted angle of heel, a signal is transmitted to the crane which prevents any further crane extension.
The Kranskan™ indicator MK5 RF variant
The MK5 RF variant has been designed for marine cranes with continuous slewing where the operator sits on the crane superstructure. The solid-state inclinometer is housed in a separate enclosure on the vessel in order to give the true angle of heel.
