The PSC system, an acronym for Platform Stability Control, thanks to an installation of dedicated components, allows the use of the standard crane configured as an aerial work platform (in PLE mode) through a single command. A system integrated with the standard one has been created that simplifies the “in PLE mode” of lifting cranes.
One of the reasons why loader cranes for trucks are so widely distributed on the market is that they can be used for a number of applications, not limited to lifting loads on a hook. In fact, the crane can be fitted with many different accessories, such as a platform. This type of application, increasingly used by our clients, make the loader crane an even more attractive prospect, as it increases its profitability.
However, using the crane in platform mode requires the fitting of safety systems which refer to standards other than EN 12999 (the European regulation regarding loader cranes), in particular EN 280:2013+A1:2015 (the European standard for elevating work platforms). For this reason, rather than allowing fitters to equip cranes with EN 280:2013+A1:2015 safety systems, we have decided to offer a package of safety devices and controls which comply with these requirements. Our aim is to offer the market a “made by Fassi” solution known as PSC (Platform Stability Control).
