New operational concept on Z180 and Z390 with optimised diagnostic options using 12-inch colour display showing high information content
Scheuerle has upgraded its Power Pack Units (PPU) Z180 and Z390 used to drive Self Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) modules, increasing the levels of user-friendliness of the new 12-inch touch display and extensively optimising diagnostic possibilities.
PPUs of the Z180 and Z390 series serve as drive units for vehicles of Scheuerle’s SPMT series. According to the manufacturer, they are suitable for use even under the most difficult of conditions such as extreme temperatures in deserts. The Z180 drives 16 through to a maximum of 40 pendulum axles while the Z390 propels 26 up to a maximum of 80 pendulum axles, each with a 48t axle load. The PPUs provide 180kW (Z180) or 390kW (Z390) of power respectively.
The new colour display on the Z180 and Z390 PPU at the head end of the drive unit is designed for better visibility. It now measures 12-inches and Scheuerle adds that the information is displayed according to the latest design standards, with the high information content of the display screen neatly arranged. In addition, all graphic elements are shown in such a way that they are self-explanatory. Thanks to the clear, modern design, the operator can see the most important information on hydraulics, engine functions and fill levels at a glance via the start page of the main menu, the manufacturer adds.
Important performance data, control data and filling levels are graphically displayed in a clear and easily understandable manner. Control icons indicate special operating conditions as well as other essential information such as Adblue and fuel levels. The touch-screen control also provides the user with quick access to the various sub-menus and thus to all essential vehicle data.
“The model upgrade of the two PPU series is based on a comprehensive overhaul of the PPU electronics. This is accompanied by significantly improved diagnostic functions. Furthermore, this information allows the service technician to remotely guide the vehicle operating unit when troubleshooting. This saves time and money as well as increasing the cost-effectiveness of the transportation,” said Scheuerle.
