The bar graph on the lower line will indicate the proximity of the current load to the maximum available safe working load. The SWL and OVERLOAD indicators in conjunction with the internal and external (where fitted) alarms will indicate the current safety status.

During operation in the rated capacity indicator mode three further messages can appear on the display. Each of these conditions will illuminate the red OVERLOAD led and will sound the internal warning alarm. The message/alarm will persist until either the condition returns to its correct state, the system is switched off, or the mode is changed. Rad f. "7 1 + 1.6.1 Hydraulic limit The hydraulic limit message can indicate either that the 4.29m current pressure measured in the boom lift rams is in excess of 87% of MRV (Main Relief Valve) pressure, or IHVDRH LIMIT 0 SWL there is a failure in the system pressure transducer. The hydraulic limit message normally only occurs at short radii ULIC (where the SWL of the machine is limited by hydraulic capacity rather than machine stability), or if the boom cylinders are powered at the end of their stroke. During both these circumstances the MRV should be heard to be 'blowing'. If this message appears at any other time then there is likely to be a problem with the pressure transducer, and service should be sought. 1.6.2 Low Pressure The low pressure warning is similar to 1.6.1 above, and it can indicate either a system state, or a system error. If the pressure measured in the boom lift cylinders falls below 5 bars then this message will be issued. This normally occurs if the machine equipment is either rested on, or powered into the ground. If this message occurs at any other time then there is likely to be a problem with the pressure transducer, and service should be sought. Rad Ь , yyp'i 2.99t 1.6.3 Too High This message will be displayed if the highest part of the machine equipment exceeds the O SWL . i UU H currently set maximum height. See section 1.7 for further details. 4 LIFTWATCH 5 USER MANUAL - © PROLEC LTD Issue 1.3
  • 5. LIFTWATCH 5 SYSTEM OPERATION 1.7 Height Indication mode The Height Indication mode allows either the adjustment of the maximum permissible operating height, or the cancelling of the height indication function. The basic Liftwatch 5 system features a 'warning only' height indicator. The addition of a COMBI BOX (see Liftwatch 5 Hardware Guide) allows the system to interface with hydraulic solenoid valves on the pilot control circuits to physically prevent a height limit from being exceeded. The height limit is stored in battery-backed memory each time it is set. When the system is switched on, the last height limit value stored will become operative. Press oA 1.7.1 Setting a height limit CENTER] to et O SWL Use the mode button to cycle through the available modes until the 'set height limit' is height li mi t displayed. Pressing ENTER will allow adjustment or cancellation of the height limiting function. Pressing MODE will continue the mode cycle, leaving the current setting unaltered. V TEST If ENTER is pressed, the alternating displays shown below will appear. ENTER MENU A MODE ■ oA 1.7.2 Adjusting the height limit To set a new height limit, move the equipment to the desired new maximum height and press ENTER. O SWL The height displayed on the screen represents the current highest part of the equipment. The Liftwatch 5 system monitors dipper pivot pin and bucket pivot pin heights on monoboom machines, and centre articulation pin, dipper pivot pin and bucket pivot pin on machines with hydraulically adjustable booms. During normal system operation, an alarm will sound if any of the monitored points exceeds the height limit. 1.7.3 Cancelling the height limit Press the MODE button to cancel the current height limit. On some early Liftwatch 5 systems (2000-2001) the height limit set will re-appear when the system is switched off and switched on again. The software on later systems has been altered to provide that the cancellation, once set, will remain in place after switch-off and a subsequent power up. 5 LIFTWATCH 5 USER MANUAL - © PROLEC LTD Issue 1.3
  • 6. LIFTWATCH 5 SYSTEM OPERATION 1.8 Dig Depth monitoring mode As the Liftwatch 5 system has equipment-mounted angle sensors, it has the capability to measure bucket tooth depth. Although a bucket angle sensor is not a standard feature, careful operation and control of bucket attitude can produce accurate trenching and basement excavation. Use the MODE button to scroll through the mode options until the display shown below appears. The operation sequence described here gives an example of how the system can be used. DEPTH= 8„88mo ADATUM= 1.Position the bucket on the ground at the start of the 0.34mO SWL excavation, with the bucket in the altitude shown in the diagram. Correct depth will only be displayed when A EN measurements are taken with the bucket in this □ □ ON/ T TE attitude. This is because Liftwatch 5 does not have a bucket angle sensor. Press ENTER to set the datum at this elevation. At this point the DEPTH value will change to 0.00, and the new DATUM will become the current ground level. DEPTh==-2, 88mo дDRTUI-'= 2.Dig to the required depth using the DEPTH value on the top line (remembering that the bucket must be 9.34mO SWL in the attitude described above to measure accurately). In this example the basement depth is A V 2.00m (or -2.00m below the initial DATUM). NOTE: □■ ENTER because the current depth is BELOW the current DATUM, the 'TOO LOW internal alarm will sound. □□□ □ 3. Place the bucket (in the attitude described in 1) in the bottom of the trench at the target depth, and press the ENTER button to re-reference the system. The current DEPTH will change to 0.00m (i.e. DEPTH =-- 8.88mo ADATUM the distance to the target datum), and DATUM will change to -2.00m (i.e. target depth). The system is ==-2.88mO SWL now fully referenced and ready for use. A V EN TE LIFTWATCH 5 USER MANUAL - © PROLEC LTD Issue 1.3

To extend, move the machine to the new position, place the bucket at the base of the initial excavation, and press the ENTER button to re-reference the position. The excavation can now be continued without the need to watch the display. When the correct depth is achieved (or exceeded) the 'TOO LOW internal alarm will sound. As the system has been referenced to the bottom of the initial excavation (and not to the track base of the machine) the position/height of the actual excavator is not
  • 8. LIFTWATCH 5 SYSTEM OPERATION 1.9 Duty selection mode The Duty Selection mode will only appear within the general mode cycle if multiple duty selection has been enable in conjunction with manual duty selection. This forms part of the calibration and set-up of the unit, and is not accessible during normal operation. Multiple duties allow the machine to have more that one lifting duty. On tracked machines this may be used to allow both 360° and OVER FRONT/REAR lifting arcs for increased lifting capacity, or on wheeled machines it could be used for any combination of arc, support blade and stabiliser usage. Automatic duty switching is also available, but this requires the fitting of a COMBI BOX (see Liftwatch 5 installation Guide for further details). Press oД 1.9.1 CENTER] 1 Use the mode button to cycle through the available modes until the 'change duty' option is displayed. change O SWL Pressing ENTER will allow adjustment of the current lifting duty. Pressing MODE will continue the mode cycle leaving the current setting unaltered.

The load chart issued with the O SWL Liftwatch 5 system will list all available lifting duties. There is a maximum of 8 possible duty selections. Press [HDJ4t ENTER to confirm the selection. After duty changes are made, control always returns to the Rated Capacity Indicator mode. The new duty number will appear on the right of the lower display line. EN ON/OFF 3 = 1 ] 1.9.3 Systems with fully automatic or combination auto/manual duty selection may display the "Initialising..." message briefly on the upper line of the display during duty changes. This will only occur if equipment length differences exist between the previous and the new duty (e.g. telescopic boom), and will clear on successful re- initialisation of the appropriate sensor. 8 LIFTWATCH 5 USER MANUAL - © PROLEC LTD Issue 1.3
  • 9. LIFTWATCH 5 SYSTEM OPERATION 1.10 System Test The LW5 system has a comprehensive built-in test function that allows the operator to check all aspects of the system and its set-up. This function can be accessed at any time from either the Time & Date mode, Rated Capacity Indicator mode, or the Dig Depth monitoring mode, by pressing the TEST button. Once this mode is accessed, pressing TEST will cycle the options available and pressing MODE will cancel the function and return to the previous operational mode.
