E-Reco system as standard for trucks
Manitou is offering, as standard, the E- Reco attachment-recognition system on its new-generation MRT EASY and MRT PRIVILEGE + ranges of rotative telescopic trucks.
The system uses RFID radio-identification technology, which can recover and record data remotely. It detects the attachment at the head of the boom, analyses its data and directly proposes the corresponding working configuration.
The technology provides the load chart in real time, taking into account the rotation angle of the turret and the position of the machine's stabilisers, in accordance with the standard relative to mobile cranes.
