The Best in Mining & Civil Technology

Self-install height solution

The Simple Safe One is a basic angular motion limiter that can be used on a variety of hydraulic plant. The SS1provides basic height limitation where the sophistication of our XW Series products is not required. Operation is simple and fool-proof. The control key can be removed to provide permanent limitation if required.


Suitable for

• Excavators
• Truck-mounted cranes
• Flails & Mowers
• Loading shovels

Height Limitation

On/Off solenoid valves, proportional valves, as well as electrical motion control are all supported. Valves are not supplied. Where proportional valves are used, there are adjustable slow-down angles and equipment speed settings to provide a controlled soft-stop to the equipment.

Precise Controls

SS1 also has the added benefit of an internal warning so the operator is always aware of the limit. Angle measurement is courtesy of a gyro compensated solid state sensor with near direct drive performance.

The compact control module samples angle data 250 times a second providing precise control
