Auto Crane, a subsidiary and premier brand of Ramsey Industries, announced
today that it will officially launch the NexStarEH(TM) Crane Management System
at the 2012 Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, Alberta.
The patent-pending NexStarEH(TM) electric-hydraulic crane management system
brings unprecedented proportional truck-mounted crane control to Auto Crane's
3203EH and 4004EH crane series, enabling operators to control multiple crane
functions simultaneously and proportionally, fully independent of each other.
The NexStarEH is a new extension of Auto Crane's crane management system
specially designed for mechanics trucks.
Auto Crane pioneered its original NexStar system in 2010 for its large
hydraulic cranes, introducing advanced control technology to industrial
material handling, mining, construction and utility markets around the world.
NexStar-equipped cranes are the only cranes in their class with load monitoring
and load limiting controls, and a visual signal-vital capabilities when safety
Available in tethered remote or the fully featured wireless FM, the NexStarEH
provides operators the ability to proportionally operate the crane with 100
percent power at four speed settings. With an eight-button multi-speed
control, the system is comprised of a transmitter, receiver and hydraulic valve
bank. Wireless FM models include the advanced crane load management system
similar to that of the NexStar II on large hydraulic cranes with features that
include truck level and boom angle sensors, a status indicator light, and an
LCD diagnostics display with plain text readouts.
