SIMOCRANE ECO technology

Fuel saving power management software for combustion engine and alternator power machinery

General Information

SIMOCRANE ECO Technology is a power management software for SIMOTION, based on the standard SINAMICS industry product portfolio, designed for use on cranes and crane related vehicles like Straddle Carriers and Reach stackers which use a combustion engine and alternator to generate electrical energy for operating the motions and supplying the auxiliary power. ECO controls the combustion engine speed-variable load-depending which leads to a reduction in fuel consumption in all operating modes. Together with the fuel saving the emission will reduce in comparable amounts.

With SIMOCRANE ECO Technology, users can count on:

  • reduction of fuel consumption

  • reduction of emission of particles and noise

  • flexibility in design

  • increased maintainability

  • serviceability by use of Siemens standard catalogue products.


Typical applications

The product with its functionality is for both new, upgrade and modernization of cranes like RTG, Straddle carrier and mobile engine driven cranes but also for vehicles like AGV available. Applications to incorporate energy storages are possible.
