User Friendly Touch-Screen Display Added to SCHEUERLE SPMT Drive Units in Comprehensive Electronics Overhaul

SCHEUERLE has upgraded its Power Pack Units (PPU) Z180 and Z390. Users benefit from the high level of user-friendliness of the new twelve-inch touch display and extensively optimised diagnostic possibilities. The Z180 and Z390 PPUs are used to drive SPMT modules.

The new twelve-inch touch display

The new colour display on the Power Pack Units (PPU) Z180 and Z390 at the head end of the drive unit immediately catches the eye. It now measures twelve inches, and the information is displayed according to the very latest design standards. As a result, the high information content of the display screen is very neatly arranged. In addition, all graphic elements are shown in such a way that they are self-explanatory. Thanks to the clear, modern design, the operator can see the most important information on hydraulics, engine functions and fill levels at a glance via the start page of the main menu.

Important performance data: control data and filling levels are graphically displayed in a clear and easily understandable manner. Sensibly arranged control icons indicate special operating conditions as well as other essential information such as Adblue and fuel levels. The intuitive touch-screen control also provides the user with quick access to the various sub-menus and thus to all essential vehicle data.

The model upgrade of the two PPU series is based on a comprehensive overhaul of the PPU electronics. This is accompanied by significantly improved diagnostic functions. Furthermore, this information allows the service technician to remotely guide the vehicle operating unit when troubleshooting. This saves time and money as well as increasing the cost-effectiveness of the transportation.

PPUs of the Z180 and Z390 series serve as drive units for the self-propelled vehicles of the SPMT series (Self Propelled Modular Transporter). They are suitable for use even under the most difficult of conditions such as extreme temperatures in deserts and Arctic regions. The Z180 drives 16 through to a maximum of 40 pendulum axles while the Z390 propels 26 up to a maximum of 80 pendulum axles (each with a 48-tonne axle load). The PPUs provide 180 kW (Z180) or 390 kW (Z390) respectively.
