1. System overview
The Palfinger Radio Remote Control System is a product of the Swedish company SCAN-RECO, it is
specially developed to operate hydraulically operated mobile cranes.

Palfinger uses two different systems of Scan Reco:


• Normal RRC system (Transmitter and receiver with battery and cable)
• Feed back system with Paltronic 50 display on the transmitter (two way system)

Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

2. Description

2.1 Transmitter

The transmitter can operate as a standard 8 proportional and 20 digital functions.

This can be expanded by special software orders and switches.

The functions can be operated by linear or joy-stick levers.

M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung
2.1-1 Digital main functions

The radio transmitter has the following main functions:

4 6 5

3 2
1
a) Emergency cut off button (1)
If the button is pressed, the system is switched off and cannot be started.
The button can be released by turning it to the right.

b) Start button (2)


Start
After releasing the emergency button, the system can be started by pressing the start button
once.
The system works if the receiver has power and the system is switched to radio.
Also there must be a battery in the transmitter, which has to be charged properly.

During normal radio operation, the red diode (5) on the transmitter is steadily on.
If the battery is low, the red diode (5) starts to flash.

Frequency shift
By pressing the start button twice in short time, the system changes the frequency like a manual
synthesiser. 12 frequencies are programmed.
During changing the frequency the system beeps once and the red diode (5) flashes once.

Digital function OLP


The start button also integrates a digital function of the crane, which depends on the overload
protection system. If Paltronic 50 is on the crane, the start button activates:
• OLP function (releasing a peak pressure in the main cylinder)
• Warning horn (button more than 0,5 s activated)
• Opening the error memory when pressing the button during start up

Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

c) MICRO-Schalter (3)

The system can be operated with 6 different speeds, which the operator can choose by the help
of the MICRO switch.

100%-mode System works with full speed (according to the adjustment of stop speed)
The green diode (6) is off.

1st red. level Act the MICRO-switch once in left direction (ON).
The system operates with 100% of the adjusted MICRO-speed.
The green diode (6) flashes once in a 5 s interval.

2nd red. level Act the MICRO-switch twice in left direction (ON).
The system operates with 83% of the adjusted MICRO-speed.
The green diode (6) flashes twice in a 5 s interval.

3rd red. level Act the MICRO-switch three times in left direction (ON).
The system operates with 68% of the adjusted MICRO-speed.
The green diode (6) flashes three times in a 5 s interval.

4th red. level Act the MICRO-switch four times in left direction (ON).
The system operates with 50% of the adjusted MICRO-speed.
The green diode (6) flashes four times in a 5 s interval.

5th red. level Act the MICRO-switch five times in left direction (ON).
The system operates with 42% of the adjusted MICRO-speed.
The green diode (6) flashes five times in a 5 s interval.

⇒ The speed modes can be changed during operating a function only in a lower mode.

⇒ To come back in a higher mode put all proportional levers in neutral position and act the
MICRO switch once to the right. The system shifts back to 100% mode (stop speed.

⇒ When starting the system, the mode is adjusted as it was during the emergency cut-off
button (memory function).

⇒ The 100% of MICRO speed is free adjustable (1st red. speed), but will never operate faster
than the stop speed setting. If the MICRO speed is programmed higher than the Stop speed,
the stop speed cuts down the MICRO speed to the stop speed setting.

M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

2.1-2 Additional digital functions (4)

The system has 11 digital functions on 10 available positions on the board.


The Palfinger standard system includes (from January 2001):

1 2 3
4 7
MICRO ON

6
5 8

⇒ (1) rpm+ / rpm- / rpmAuto


3-position switch to adjust the rpm on the truck:
left position: rpm constantly high
neutral position: rpm constantly low
right position: rpm is high, if a movement is activated, speed change back to neutral 6s
after all levers are back in neutral position.

⇒ (2) Motor Start (3) Motor Stop


2-function switch to start and stop the truck engine.

⇒ (4) HPLS On/Off


Button to operate the HPLS system.
On systems with a Paltronic 50 display on the transmitter, the function works via the CAN bus
system, so it is not necessary to connect the digital output cable (EX1 pin 4).

⇒ (5) Return oil utilisation on/off


Button to switch operate the return oil utilisation system.
On systems with a Paltronic 50 display on the transmitter, the function works via the CAN bus
system, so it is not necessary to connect the digital output cable (EX1 pin 6).

⇒ (6) AOS on/off


Switch to control the AOS system (active oscillation suppression).
This function works only via CAN bus, so a feed back system is necessary.

⇒ (7) Paltronic 50 on/off


Button to switch on and off the P50 system, only necessary if the system has a P50 display
on the transmitter. Signal is transferred via CAN bus only.

⇒ (8) AOS concrete XX function


Allows a manual operating of the AOS function, is only possible with P50 feed back system.

Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

2.1-3 Proportional functions

The standard transmitter is equipped with 6 proportional functions.


All of them have proportional controllability.

Due to safety reasons, all levers must be in neutral position during starting the system.
If this is not like this, the transmitter signalises this by indicating the number of the defective lever.

Example: If the system beeps five times during the starting process, lever 5 (from the left) is not in
neutral position.

The system can be operated now only without this defective function.

The following levers are available:

⇒ linear control lever for 1 proportional function

⇒ cross control lever for 2 proportional functions

⇒ cross control lever for 3 proportional functions

If a lever is defective, it can be replaced easily by opening the screws and changing the lever.
A modification from linear to cross control levers is not possible without more modifications.

M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung
2.1-4 Test mode for radio transmitter

To control all levers and buttons on the transmitter a test mode can be entered.

Enter the testmode:

Press and release the emergency button on the transmitter.

Press 10 times quickly the start button.


The system is in test mode, when the green diode (6) flashes twice.

Test functions:

Now the proportional levers can be tested one by one by acting them. The transmitter gives
acoustical signals according to the angle of the lever.

The digital functions can be tested also by acting them. The systems beeps once by acting a
function.

Quit the test mode:

This is done by pressing the emergency cut-off button.

2.1-5 Cable mode

The system can also be operated in cable mode.


Therefore the system must be switched to „remote“ mode and the programming cable must be
connected between the transmitter and the „cable“ connection on the electronic box.
Theoretically both would work now, radio and cable mode. But the system gives the higher priority to the
cable system, so there are no radio signals now.

If the battery is in the transmitter during the cable mode, it will be charged within 16 hours.

2.1-6 Paltronic 50 display on the transmitter (feed back system)

A feed back system is not interchangeable with a normal radio system.


This system is a full Paltronic 50 display and can be used instead of a display unit on the crane.
For function and operating see P50 description.

Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

2.2 Radio receiver

The radio receiver gets the digital data diagram from the transmitter and gives it to the electronic box.

The radio receiver gets electrical power from the electronic box, if it is switched to „remote“.
If the receiver has power, the green diode nearby the antenna is on.

If the radio signal gets interference from other systems, the frequency can be changed by pressing twice
the start button on the transmitter.

The connecting cable of the radio receiver is marked with the letters RA and has to be connected to the
Radio connection on the electronic box.

To guarantee signals without interference, the radio receiver should be mounted with the antenna
vertically.

Palfinger uses two different versions of radio receivers


• Radio receiver for normal system (EEA-2591), see also spare part book
• Radio receiver for feed back system (EEA-3055), see also spare part book

10
M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

2.3 Electronic box (main unit)

The electronic box gets a digital diagram form the radio receiver (via the RA cable) and prepares the
signals for all users (control valve, magnetic valves ..)

2.3-1 Connections

Connections:

Radio cable connection from the radio receiver


Cable cable connection to the transmitter (programming, cable mode)

11
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

2.3-2 Different versions

Generally Palfinger uses 2 different systems, the standard radio control and the feed back system.
Further both systems have two different versions, the old versions was used until end of year 2000, since
January 2001, a new box with a difference in the programming is on the market.

Old system (up to end of 2000), 7 programmable levels:


Systems without P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 983 Danfoss
Systems with P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 547 Danfoss
Systems without P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 843 Nordhydraulic

New system (01/2001), 15 programmable levels


Systems without P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 301 Danfoss
Systems with P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 300 Danfoss
Systems without P50 feed back ScanReco-Nr. 843 Nordhydraulic

2.3-3 Safety

The system is protected with two car type


fuses and a „terrorist“ diode

Fuses

10 A in the „+“- line


30 A in the „–„- line

2.3-4 Electrical data

The connected users (control valve, magnetic valves ..) are allowed to take a maximum of electrical
power as written here:

Dump valve max. 1,8 A


Digital function max. 1,2 A
Proportional function max. 1,8 A

If one connection takes more, the line will be switched off (short-cut protection)
The usage of electrical power on the proportional connections depends on the type of control valve.
Therefore have a look on the valve description.

12
M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

Current consumption of the electronic box:

60 mA without radio receiver


140 mA with radio receiver

Total current consumption:

Can be calculated as the sum of all electrical users, the main fuse must be stronger than the
total current consumption.

Inlet voltage:

12 to 30 V, no difference between 12 and 24V system.

2.3-5 Digital outputs

Each system is equipped with additional digital functions.


The output for this functions is realised via the so-called „EX-cables“.

As a maximum 3 EX-cables are possible on the system, each with 7 wires.


Each wire is presetted for a certain function, so as a result all Palfinger systems have the same wiring
on the digital functions.

EX (1) – cable

Standard on all systems. The EX cable is directly connected to the electronic box with a 7-pin
Amphenol plug, named with On/Off. The cable is marked with EX.

Wiring:
1 rpm + / - / Auto
2 Motor Start
3 Motor Stop
4 HPLS On/Off
5 AOS XX (only with AOS)
6 Return oil utilisation On/Off
7 OLP / Horn

• On feed back systems, the pins 4, 5 and 6 are transferred via the CAN bus system. So it is not
necessary to connect the wires externally.
• On older systems, (hydraulic HPLS), wire 5 was used for the HPLS off function.
• If a CAN bus is used, wire 4, 5 and 6 cannot be used for other functions.

13
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

EX2 – cable
Is standard on all systems produced from the year 2000 or later, the cable is directly wired into the
electronic box (no plug). The cable is marked with EX2.

Wiring:
1 Automatic change over function for Fly-Jib extension and grap
2 Automatic change over function for Fly-Jib knuckle boom and rotator
3 Not used
4 AOS on / off
5 HPLS Input signal for HPLS speed set
6 AK Input signal for workman basket speed set
7 + Permanent plus

• If no reduced speed set is necessary, wire 5 and 6 have to be connected to wire 7 !


• If wire 5 has 0V, the HPLS speed set is active.
• If wire 6 has 0V, the workman basket speed set is active.

EX3 – cable
Is only installed on feed back systems.
The cable is marked with yellow letters “EX3” and is directly wired into the electronic box.

Wiring:
1-7 CAN bus from P50 (see Paltronic 50 description)

2.3-6 Luminous diodes on the electronic box

The electronic box is equipped with 9 luminous diodes, which show the different operating status and
which can be used also for fault monitoring.

14
M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

Meaning of the diodes

POWER power is on
DV dump valve has voltage
ON/OFF digital function is active
DIR.A: proportional lever is acted to direction A
The intensity of the diode depends on the angle of the acted lever.
DIR.B: proportional lever is acted to direction B
The intensity of the diode depends on the angle of the acted lever.
1,2,3,4: status display, important for fault monitoring

Normal operating status

Transmitter off, system in MANUAL mode: DV steadily on


Transmitter off, system in RADIO mode: POWER steadily on, 4 flashing

Transmitter on, RADIO mode, radio operating POWER, 2, 3; DV only if function acted
Transmitter on, RADIO mode, cable operating: POWER, 2,3,4, DV only if function acted

In radio mode, the dump valve drops 0,5 s after using a function (3s on AOS systems).

2.3-7 Trouble shooting

If the system indicates an error, at first always the LED 1 shows a short flash. After this, the error is
shown by a combination of the diodes 2, 3, and 4.

Therefore, the system has to be switched on in radio mode.


The following errors are indicated:

a) Diode 1, pause, then diode 2

Overload on a On/Off function (function consumes more than 1,2 A)


• Disconnect EX-plug and EX-2 plug.
• If error remains, one of the EX cables has an internal short cut!
• If error disappears, connect on of the two EX-cables.
• If the error shows up again, one of the functions on this cables has a shortcut.
• Disconnect each of the maximum seven connected functions of this cables one by one and
find out, which one cause the error.
• Eventually a relays is necessary on the defective function to lower the power consumption!

15
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

b) Diode 1, pause, then diode 2 and 4

Overload on dump valve connection (DV), consumption higher than 2 A


• Disconnect DV-function, (Attention: not on the valve itself! Disconnect terminal 15, if not
there, terminal 16).
• If error remains, the DV cable has an intern shortcut.
• If error disappears, check Paltronic DV input and output for shortcuts, eventually a relays is
necessary to reduce the electrical consumption of the DV-system.

c) Diode 1, pause, then diode 2 and 3

Shortcut on Danfoss electric module


• Disconnect the Danfoss modules one by one, until the error disappears
• If error remains, on of the cables has a shortcut! Change electric box!
• If error disappears, change defective module!

d) Diode 1, pause, then diode 3 and 4

Danfoss control signal not allowed value


• Disconnect the Danfoss modules one by one, until the error disappears
• If error remains, on of the cables has a shortcut! Change electric box!
• If error disappears, check the Danfoss module for condensation water, eventually change
Danfoss module.

e) Diode 1, pause, then Diode 2, 3 and 4

Error in the dump valve cable during start of the system.


• Disconnect dump valve plug.
• If error remains, the cable itself has a shortcut.!
• If error disappears, change dump valve (check for short cuts in external cables as well).

f) Diode 1, pause, then diode 4

Check sum error during programming the system with WIN - SCI
• Factory reset necessary (only possible with WIN-SCI software)
• After this, new programming necessary.

M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

2.4 Programming cable

The programming cable comes together with the system and is as a standard 15 m long.

The cable can be used to program the system , to charge the battery in the transmitter or to operate in
cable mode.

It has to be connected between the transmitter and the cable/opto connector of the electronic box.

2.5 Battery

The system is equipped with 2 NiMH (Mangan Hybrid) batteries.


The current of a fully charged battery is approx. 8 V.
The battery has 3 connections, the middle one is not used on the Palfinger system.

The effective operating time with a fully charged battery is approx. 8 hours.
If the battery is empty, the transmitter gives 3 short optical and acoustical signals.

After this, the battery should be used until the system stops itself.
If the battery is low, the system cannot be restarted again.

If there are not functions acted within 5 minutes, the system switches off automatically.

17
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

2.6 Battery charger

Also a 11-30 V battery charger comes together with the system.

The charger can be connected to constant plus.


It is protected by a 3 A glass type fuse.

The charger has two luminous diodes:

Red diode: indicates power on


Green diode: indicates charging a battery

The normal charging time is 12 hours.

The current consumption without battery is 10-20 mA.


The current consumption with battery is 130-140 mA.

The voltage on the battery connections is approx. the same as the voltage in the feed line.

The charger discharges a battery to a low level of 18 % and starts then the charging process.
Short power interrupts (during starting the truck etc..) are no problem (no memory effect).
Never take the battery out and put in again, the system starts to discharge again!

Attention:
Only charge empty batteries
Take out the battery only when you want to put it into the transmitter

Charging the battery in the transmitter

Put system to radio and use cable mode. Charging is only done during working!
Charging time approx. 16 hours.

Connection

The charger has to be connected to permanent plus!


Blue wire is Plus!
Brown wire is Minus!

M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung

3. Programming
To have a well adjusted system, suitable for all the different requirements of different operators, the
system can be adjusted with the help of the transmitter.

The fllowing description explains the programming of the new system (Type 301 and 300), which are on the market
since January 2001.
On older systems, only the levels 1-6 and 15 are programmable.

The programming is done in three steps:

3.1 Enter the programming mode


3.2 Adjust the system
3.3 Quit the mode and save the adjustments

The programming is done in different levels, each of them is for a different kind of adjustment.

3.1 How to enter the program mode

To enter the programming mode, follow the mentioned steps:

⇒ Remove the battery from the transmitter

⇒ Connect the programming cable between the transmitter and the „cable/opto“ connection on the
electronic box.

⇒ Press the emergency button on crane and transmitter

⇒ Release emergency button on crane

⇒ Release the emergency button on the transmitter

⇒ press once the start button


The red diode starts to light steadily

⇒ Give fast impulses with the MICRO-switch to the RIGHT (direction OFF), until the system gives a
long beep.

⇒ wait 12 s until the system gives a second long beep


All the above steps must be done within 5 seconds, otherwise the programming mode is not active.

⇒ Enter the level you want by pressing the start button „x“ times
(Example: press 3 times for level 3)

19
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

3.2 Pogramming

GENERALLY
Scan Reco has three different speed levels, which are activated by different input signals to the electronic
box.

These input signals are on the cable EX2 wire 5 and 6.

EX2 wire 5: HPLS speed input


EX2 wire 6: workman basket speed input

Conditions:
EX2 wire 5 and 6 have 24 V crane works with full speed (normal mode)
EX2 wire 5 has 0 V HPLS speed active
EX2 wire 6 has 0 V workman basket speed active
EX2 wire 5 and 6 have 0 V the lowest setting is active (HPLS or workman basket)

If one of the reduced speed sets is not used, the signal wire has to be connected to EX2 wire 7
(permanent plus).

PROGRAMMING LEVELS
By pressing the start button according to the speed level in programming mode, each level can be
chosen. The chosen level will be indicated optically (rote diode) and acoustically.

The following levels can be programmed:

Chapter level description signal

3.2-1 Level 1 Movement working direction •


3.2-2 Level 2 Normal mode start speed ••
3.2-2 Level 3 Normal mode maximum speed •••
3.2-2 Level 4 Normal mode MICRO speed ••••

3.2-2 Level 14 HPLS mode MICRO speed    ••
3.2-2 Level 15 HPLS mode maximum speed    •••

• During programming, the next higher level can be chosen.


• To activate a lower level, the programming mode has to be stopped and restarted.

20
M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung
3.2-1 Changing the working direction

The working direktion of a functin can be changed.


After doing this, the function works into the opposite direction when acting a lever.

• Enter the programming mode

• Choose level 1 by pressing the start button once


(system signalises level 1 by beeping and flashing once in 5 s intervals)

• Move the required function with low speed (to avoid load shocks)

• Act once the MICRO switch to the LEFT or to the RIGHT until the function changes it’s working
direction .
The function will interchange both directions with this program!

• Change all functions like this according to your the your wishes or save the changing by
pressing the emergency cut off button. If required, change the program level to a higher one by
pressing the start button again.

• Attention: The working direction is a GLOBAL function! This means, when changing the
direction in normal mode, also HPLS and workman basket mode is changed! On elder
systems, this function is only working in one level, therefore it is necessary to change each
speed set separately. To do this, just repeat the a.m. setting in the required speed set again.

Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

3.2-2 Changing operating speeds

All speed settings can be changed with the following procedure. Generally each speed set has three
different adjustments:

• Start speed: Minimum speed of the function which is used to start the movement.
• Maximum speed: Speed when acting a lever fully (highest speed of a speed set).
• MICRO speed: Speed, when acting the lever fully in the first reduced mode (green diode
flashes once every 5 seconds).

The following speeds are possible:

Level 2 normal working mode start speed


Level 3 normal working mode maximum speed
Level 4 normal working mode MICRO speed

Level 9 workman basket mode start speed


Level 10 workman basket mode MICRO speed
Level 11 workman basket mode maximum speed

Level 13 HPLS mode start speed


Level 14 HPLS mode MICRO speed
Level 15 HPLS mode maximum speed

PROGRAMMING

• Enter the programming mode and choose the required level by pressing the start button.
(The chosen level will be shown optically (red diode) and acoustically (long and short acoustic
signals)).

• Move the lever of the function you want to change (fully, if maximum or MICRO speed should be
changed and minimal if start speed should be changed).

• Change the speed with the MICRO switch


- to the LEFT (direction ON) to increase the speed
- to the RIGHT (direction OFF) to reduce the speed

• Change all functions like this according to your the your wishes or save the changing by pressing
the emergency cut off button. If required, change the program level to a higher one by pressing the
start button again.

22
M2-2.1 Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung
3.2-3 Acceleration ramp

The acceleration of each function can be programmed individually.

This has to be done separately for each speed set:

NORMAL MODE
If the crane is operating in normal mode (EX2 wire 5 and 6 have 24V/12V), the acceleration for
normal mode can be programmed.

WORKMAN BASKET MODE


To change the acceleration for a function in workman basket mode, the workman basked mode
has to be active during programming (EX2 wire 6 has 0V).

HPLS MODE
To change the acceleration for a function in HPLS mode, the HPLS mode has to be active during
programming (EX2 wire 5 has 0V).

PROGRAMMING

• Enter the programming mode

• Choose level 5 by pressing the start button five times.


(System signalises level 5 by beeping and flashing once long and once short in a 5 s interval)

• Move the function you want to modify.

• Modify the actual setting by acting the MICRO-switch


- to the LEFT (direction ON) to increase the ramp (longer time)
- to the RIGHT (direction OFF) to decrease the ramp (shorter time)

The higher the acceleration ramp is adjusted, the longer it takes to get maximum speed on a
function.
The acceleration ramp can be modified in 16 steps:
step acceleration time step acceleration time
0 0,0 s 8 1,0 s
1 0,1 s 9 1,2 s
2 0,2 s 10 1,5 s
3 0,3 s 11 1,7 s
4 0,4 s 12 2,0 s
5 0,5 s 13 2,5 s
6 0,6 s 14 3,0 s
7 0,8 s 15 5,0 s

• Change all functions like this according to your the your wishes or save the changing by pressing
the emergency cut off button. If required, change the program level to a higher one by pressing the
start button again.

23
Palfinger Funkfernsteuerung M2-2.1

3.2-4 Deceleration ramp

The deceleration of each function can be programmed individually.

This has to be done separately for each speed set:


Therefore see chapter 3.2-3 (acceleration ramp).

PROGRAMMING

• Enter the programming mode

• Choose level 5 by pressing the start button five times.


(System signalises level 5 by beeping and flashing once long and twice short in a 5 s interval)

• Move the function you want to modify.

• Modify the actual setting by acting the MICRO-switch


- to the LEFT (direction ON) to increase the ramp (longer time)
- to the RIGHT (direction OFF) to decrease the ramp (shorter time)

The higher the acceleration ramp is adjusted, the longer it takes to get maximum speed on a
function.
The acceleration ramp can be modified in 16 steps:
step acceleration time step acceleration time
0 0,0 s 8 1,0 s
1 0,1 s 9 1,2 s
2 0,2 s 10 1,5 s
3 0,3 s 11 1,7 s
4 0,4 s 12 2,0 s
5 0,5 s 13 2,5 s
6 0,6 s 14 3,0 s
7 0,8 s 15 5,0 s

• Change all functions like this according to your the your wishes or save the changing by pressing
the emergency cut off button. If required, change the program level to a higher one by pressing the
start button again.

3.2-5 Linearity of movements

The linearity of the function movements can be changed.

This is programmable in level 7.

ATTENTION
The values are preadjusted and should not be changed by anyone.

3.2-6 Change over delay on Fly-Jib

This adjustments allows to modify the change over time between a Fly-Jib main function and an
additional equipment on the Fly-Jib (Y18 and Y19).

The value can be modified in level 8 (standard = 0.5 sec).

• Enter the programming level and activate level 8 by pressing the start button 8 times (system gives
one long and 4 short signals optically and acoustically)

• Change the change over time by using the MICRO switch


- to the LEFT (direction ON) to increase the delay time
- to the RIGHT (direction OFF) to decrease the delay time

11 different steps according to the delay time are programmable:


Step Change over delay
0 0,0 s
1 0,1 s
2 0,2 s
3 0,3 s
4 0,4 s
5 0,5 s
6 0,6 s
7 0,7 s
8 0,8 s
9 0,9 s
10 1,0 s

• If required, change the program level to a higher one by pressing the start button again, otherwise
save the changing by pressing the emergency cut off button.

Attention
The delay time is preadjusted by Palfinger according to each equipment and should not be changed by
anybody after delivery (peak pressures can occur).

3.2-7 Emergency cut off delay

This adjustment controls, how long the emergency cut off system is be active after moving a function.

The programming has to be done in level 12 and is divided into 256 values. Each one means a certain
delay time for the emergency cut off system.

• Enter the programming level and activate level 12 by pressing the start button 12 times (system
gives two long and 4 short signals optically and acoustically)

• Change the value by using the MICRO switch:


- to the LEFT (direction ON) to increase the value
- to the RIGHT (direction OFF) to decrease the value

Table for the delay time according to the adjusted value:


Value Delay time

0 permanently = valve has permanently 12/24 V

1 1s
2 2s
3 3 s = STANDARD for AOS
until 19 19 s

20 0,0 s = no delay at all


21 0,5 s = NORMAL STANDARD VALUE

22 22 s
until 255 255 s

• If required, change the program level to a higher one by pressing the start button again, otherwise
save the changing by pressing the emergency cut off button.

ATTENTION
The standard value (21) is presetted by Palfinger and should not be changed by anybody after delivery
due to safety reasons.

Standard value for normal cranes 0,5 s (value 21)


Standard value for cranes with AOS 3s (value 3)

3.3 Saving the adjustments

After adjusting all necessary movements, the adjustments can be stored in the system by pressing the
emergency cut-off button.
Together with this you leave the programming mode.

Now it is possible to enter the programming mode again or to start the normal operation.

4. Special functions

4.1 Program a new transmitter

Generally it is possible to program each transmitter to an existing receiver.

During doing this, the new transmitter gives it’s digital system address to the receiver, so that again both
radio parts are able to work together.

Programming

• Remove the battery and connect the programming cable.

• Put the key switch to “radio” operation.

• Press the emergency button on the crane and on the transmitter.

• Check that there is no voltage on the receiver now! If there is voltage, use the ignition key to stop
the system.

• Release the emergency button at first on the crane, than on the transmitter.

• Press the start button and hold it for at least 10 s.


After this 10 s the system starts to beep a few times.

• Press the emergency button, remove the programming cable and put the battery in.

• Start and test the system.

After programming a new transmitter to an existing system, only the new transmitter can control the
crane.

General

It is always possible to use any transmitter in cable mode without programming anything.
In this case, the cable has the highest priority and the address of the radio parts is not important.
