Mobile Crane Personal Simulator
The simulation software puts you at the controls of a typical mobile hydraulic crane equipped with telescoping boom and jib, and a variety of loads and hookblocks. Typical instrument readings are also displayed including boom angle, boom length, height, radius, and quadrant of operation, along with a simulated load-moment indicator. You can even change the viewpoint during the simulation at the touch of a button.
Simply set up the simulator controls (see below for details), install the award-winning simulation software (in English, French, or Spanish) on your desktop or laptop PC, and begin!
Add a big screen display for "life size" graphics, and quality speakers for the audio feedback. Simlog even offers a vibration system to enhance the simulation experience. There are setup options to suit almost every budget.
There are six "Simulation Modules" of increasing difficulty. Early modules introduce the basic crane motions. Later Simulation Modules add obstacles and load charts, to end with zigzag trajectory following exercises. Key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed, including execution time, maximum load sway, number of load/obstacle collisions, and number of 2-blocking occurrences. In this way, the feedback is diagnostic, instead of just a consolidated pass/fail score.
Simulation results are automatically saved, so trainees can progress at their own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the record keeping, Simlog offers a database product called Simulation Manager, and the same database can be used with all of our Personal Simulators.
Many kinds of USB-ready simulator controls, and mounting configurations, are available:
- Replica Controls, featuring components suitable for table-top mounting
- Simlog's new Operator Chair, to obtain a superior simulation experience
- PC Controls, consisting of low cost off-the-shelf input devices for easy transportability
