The start-stop function makes it possible to manually shut down the engine with a button in the cab during crane operation in order to avoid idling. This can be used to reduce the crane’s fuel consumption, emissions, and operating hours. While the engine is shut down, the crane control system remains active so that crane operation can be resumed briefly after restarting.
Lower fuel consumption and emissions. Added cost-effectiveness.
The crucial advantage of the start-stop function in comparison to conventional engine shutdowns is that the IC-1 crane control system is not shut down as well, but remains active instead. In other words, when the start-stop function is used to restart, the control system is ready for operation within a matter of seconds so that a lift can be started or resumed practically without any delay.
