Advanced Height Control

The XW1 manages and protects your working height. Using the latest compact stainless steel solid-state 3 Axis accelerometer with gyro compensation sensors, in combination with the latest in screen hardware, the XW1 provides an effective height detection system.

The XW1 can be configured to work on a variety of articulated hydraulic plant. Height limitation is controlled using proportional soft-stop hydraulic valves providing accurate and repeatable performance without detriment to the machine. Operation is fail-safe and fully automatic with function selection never more than two key presses away.
