Improved KENNIS Cranes meet new safety standards
EN standards compliance assures safety and performance
KENNIS Cranes for CE markets are now fully compliant with European Standards EN12999:2020 and EN 13849* for a higher level of safety and performance in crane controls.
This has been achieved through a completely new electronic platform, which with new ergonomics, precision calculation software, and, clear displays and controls, delivers higher safety levels for the operator.
The latest cranes retain the reliability, speed and great features of the previous generation, but now with increased safety, precision and efficiency.
The innovative KENNIS control system allows to maximize the crane lifting capacity securing the safety of the operations in any condition. Improved stability control includes trailer tilting sensors with 0o-levelling and speed control which facilitate safer operation on uneven ground, without stabilizer legs.
A new human interface, with a 7-inch graphic display, improves operator control and full overview on the crane status. The connectivity option utilizes a GPS gateway to read and transmit data analytics from the crane control system and store it securely in the Cloud. This enables access to the crane status, GPS position, and usage and maintenance statistics through a powerful Web interface.
KENNIS Cranes continue to lead the market in efficiency and environmental credentials.
“We are proud to promote safety and performance in our cranes through compliance with these new European Standards,” said Davide Catellani, Line of Business Director Cranes “KENNIS Cranes continue to lead the market in efficiency and environmental credentials – including E-Power, the 100% electric powered model with no exhaust fume emissions and lower noise levels.”
EN12999 specifies minimum requirements for design, calculation, examinations and tests of hydraulic powered loader cranes and their mountings on vehicles or static foundations.
EN13849 relates to safety of machinery and electrical engineering, in particular, safety-related parts of control systems.
