Crane control

Venturo Logic Controls (VLC) system provides overload protection, vehicle stability and grade indications, real-time load and status updates, safety alerts and wireless or CAN communication. These features keep operators on top of crane sequences and prevent potential damage to loads and injuries to job site crews.

“When profit margins and labor markets are tight, companies cannot afford injuries to people or stalled productivity,” says Venturo Vice President, Sales & Marketing Tony Albanese. “Cranes address each of these issues, and the VLC unit takes crane performance to a higher level.” Features like overload protection offer additional benefits, he adds, such as increased payload capacity and decreased waiting time on job sites, which can account for more than 60 percent of total labor time. The improved efficiency helps crews move a greater amount of materials with fewer people.

A wireless-remote, pistol-grip controller affords operator comfort over 60-hour battery life; features a four-line, 20-character screen display, seven two-way toggle switches and four momentary push buttons; and, keeps the user experience intuitive in either 2.4GHz wireless or wired cable operation. While using the VLC controller, multiple safety and capacity alerts warn operators of malfunctions or overloads through LCD display screen text; transmitter handle vibrations; green/yellow/red light on underside of boom; and, corresponding lights on the wireless receiver.
