Fassi Stability Control:
Utmost Control of Crane for Stability
|Fassi has developed the FSC “Fassi Stability
Control” systems, available in different
designed for each type of crane, to best comply with
Machine Directive 2006/42/EC and to apply the
corresponding technical standard EN 12999:2011,
which requires cranes that have a lifting capacity
least 1000 kg or a lifting moment equal to and above
40000 Nm to be equipped with vehicle stability
control in the safety function carried out by the
lifting moment limiting device.

These systems differ according to crane models
and respective configurations.
In particular, the S (Super) version, featuring

This electronic system significantly improves crane
control conditions, thus making it easier to use the

conditions, you can be sure to have excellent
versatility of use,
combined with the best lifting capacity.
