Visibility and camera system

Enhanced visibility increases productivity

Good visibility is of vital importance to ensure safe operation and allow fast-paced processes. The WR offers a visibility concept that is unique in the industry: large glass panes at the front, left and right side of the cabin, and a set of mirrors in line with field requirements allow a full view of the entire construction site. The spacious cabin, which can be moved beyond the edge of the machine on the right, and the driver’s seat swiveling through 90 degrees offer a free view of the entire working edge on the right-hand side so that working flush to kerb without the need for extensive reworking is no problem at all.

The excellent view of the working edge on the right side of the machine ensures highly precise recycling along pavement kerbs on the one hand while enabling highly precise overlaps on the other.

Large glass windows and numerous mirrors offer excellent visibility.

The WR makes work easy - day after day

The lighting system of the WR comprises six working lights at the front of the cabin, optionally in LED design, two spotlights each on the left and right side, two cornering lights at the rear and two spotlights allowing flexible mounting by means of magnetic bases. Operation can thus continue at full swing even after the sun has set. “Welcome” and “Go home” lights feature: when walking towards or away from the WR, the machine’s surroundings can be illuminated by means of LED lights. Safety first: side railings are folded up in a few simple steps when working on the engine or cooler. The cabin complies with ROPS / FOPS standards, offering maximum protection for the machine operator.

The camera installed at the rear provides images of what is going on behind the machine.

Second-to-none camera system

Camera systems are developing into increasingly important support tools when it comes to monitoring the operation and process sequences of machines and applications in which good visibility is a must. A reversing camera is included in the basic on-board equipment package of the WR model series. The intelligent reverse assist system supports the machine operator during reverse travel by fading in driving assistance lines.

At the customer’s request, a system comprising as many as four high-resolution colour cameras can be installed at the rear of the machine, on the left side of the machine and underneath the machine at the front and rear rotor plates. When operating several cameras, an additional screen is installed to display the camera images.

In the final analysis, complete visibility into important operating processes and areas, such as driving up to obstacles or assessing work results, achieves a significant increase in quality, performance and economic efficiency.
