PONSSE ACTIVE CRANE - SEAMLESS LOADER CONTROL

PONSSE Active Crane offers a new way of controlling the loader and boosting the work. It is a forwarder system that the operator uses to control the grapple movement instead of individual functions, allowing the operator to concentrate efficiently on loader work.

Active Crane is easily controlled using two control levers, one of which controls the grapple height from the ground and the other the direction of movement. What is essential is that the operator does not need to control all the functions simultaneously. When the operator specifies the desired grapple location, the system automatically performs the lifting, folding and extending. The operator may easily switch between using Active Crane and conventional loader control with a push of a button.

THE RENEWALS FOR THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

In addition to new products, Ponsse has made changes to other models to improve the fuel economy of the machines. The hydraulic system of harvesters has been developed further, clearly decreasing fuel consumption, heat generation in the hydraulics and pressure losses. In the new hydraulic system, the piping and connection blocks have been changed to ensure better flow, brining a clear improvement to the operation and efficiency of the hydraulics.
The new hydraulic system has been extensively field-tested in different countries, and the results are promising: fuel consumption has been clearly lower in field tests. In addition, it has been possible to lower the pressures of the harvester head feed without affecting work speed.

100 TIMES MORE INFORMATION

The Opti information system developed by Ponsse for forest machines has been renewed for software, user interface and modules. The new system can process up to 100 times more information and 100 times faster than the system of the previous generation.

PONSSE MANAGER - NEW LEVEL OF DIGITALISATION FOR FOREST MACHINES

PONSSE Manager ENG

PONSSE Manager is a modern digitalisation platform for forest machines, connecting the machines to an information network. This enables extensive services now and in the future. The comprehensive, easy-to-use tool offers assistance in harvesting equipment maintenance and work planning, along with providing access to extensive reporting functionalities.

PONSSE Manager provides comprehensive real-time information on equipment performance and work site status. The solution can be easily used via a smartphone, tablet or computer.

PONSSE Manager’s latest feature, hydraulic pump condition monitoring, enables remote condition monitoring of the harvester’s working pumps from the office or using a smart device. The condition of the working pumps can easily be monitored in PONSSE Manager’s machine card along with other information. The data produced by condition monitoring improves the utilisation rate of the equipment. At the moment, condition monitoring provides information about the condition and performance of working pumps.*

In the future, the data produced by the system will enable machine servicing and preventive maintenance never seen before in the forest.

* This feature will become available gradually in different markets.

OPTIMAP2 MAP APPLICATION - EASILY LOCATE PILES LEFT BY THE HARVESTER

Make use of the OptiMap2 map application in work planning for harvesting and shortdistance hauling. Optimise your driving and save time, fuel and the soil.

When the harvester’s output files are transferred to the forwarder’s OptiMap2 application, the forwarder operator receives important information to facilitate the work, and the information flows smoothly between different shifts.

OptiMap2 informs the forwarder operator of the harvester’s cutting trails as well as the timber assortments, amounts and pile locations on a trail-specific basis or in a limited area. This way, the operator can plan the driving and optimise transferring the timber to the roadside.

A dedicated map application for PONSSE forest machines, OptiMap2 is part of the PONSSE Opti4G information and control system. The harvester must have GPS positioning and the opportunity to save coordinates in PRI files. Data transfer between machines can be carried out using normal e-mail or a memory stick, if working in areas not covered by data communications networks. The application is available as a free trial version for 30 days.
