Hyundai Forklift has introduced an interactive instrument cluster system for the 9 Series diesel forklift trucks. Available as standard equipment, the 5.6-in wide screen color LCD monitor informs the operator of changing conditions on the jobsite—including speed, travel direction and battery discharge—allowing the operator to control the machine with greater ease.
For improved productivity and safety, a truck inclination warning system monitors and indicates forward/backward and right/left degree of the forklift, and sounds an alarm when the driver is outside the degree of ISO safe driving regulations. The instrument cluster system also supports an optional integrated rear-view camera for increased visibility to personnel, racking or other obstacles behind the forklift truck.
The new instrument cluster includes several advanced safety and control systems, including a speed limit system, engine start limitation, direction change shock reduction system and load indicator system.
With the speed limit system, the maximum speed can be entered through the display, and the display indicates when the truck has reached the set speed. For added theft prevention, the password-activated engine start limitation prevents directional travel if an incorrect password is entered.
The direction change shock reduction system allows the operator to shift transmission without braking. The load indicator system displays the weight being lifted based on hydraulic pressure and sounds an alarm when capacity limits have been reached.
