The SCS⁴ provides users with clear, detailed messages in their native language guiding them on what to do while troubleshooting or on what to look for while monitoring the spreader, unlike the SCS² which only displays error codes.
This accurate diagnostic data is the key to shortening downtime and eliminating the need for time-consuming spreader changeouts.
Operational information, such as events, alarms and trend data, is stored in the SCS⁴ even after the spreader has been disconnected.
This gives service and maintenance personnel the opportunity to review and analyze data in order to further improve spreader productivity.
The sturdy SCS⁴ control system is mounted on the spreader mainframe and is easily accessible to users.
Benefits of having an upgrade from SCS² CANopen to SCS⁴ include:
- Backup memory and external battery
All information including control program, parameters, counters are stored in the backup memory to facilitate the unlikely situation where a screen needs to be replaced. The easily accessible external battery is located behind the SCS⁴ unit.
- Visualization monitor
The visualization monitor shows several operational parameters and data. The SCS⁴ comes with a powerful touchscreen monitor that features improved user-friendliness, advanced diagnostics and spreader prognostics.
- Online tuning
Users are able to tune spreader parameters online or revert them to factory settings.
- Display of runtime and spreader data
Provides detailed information such as events, alarms and log data to help maintenance personnel perform more accurate and efficient maintenance.
- Communications status of field bus interfaces
Advanced communications are at the heart of SCS⁴ spreader control. Communications status of field bus interfaces ensures the secure information flow between SCS⁴, spreader and crane.
- Spreader sensor and valves
All spreader sensors and valves are displayed on the screen for monitoring accuracy.
The updated technology in the SCS⁴ control system ensures that spreaders will be compatible with future product releases.
