Xwatch XW5 Series Height, Slew Limiter & RCI


Rated Capacity Indicator with Height & Slew Limitation

The XW5 offers a total safe working envelope around the machine and operator enabling the control of the machine’s height, slew and rated capacity indication. This comprehensive system covers every eventually when considering both operator and machine safety, offering complete piece of mind.

The XW5 can be configured to work on any type of hydraulic excavator. Overload, height, and slew limitation are controlled using proportional soft-stop hydraulic valves providing accurate and repeatable performance without detriment to the machine. A basic dig depth monitor is available when the RCI is not required. If hazards arise, XW5 will automatically flip to the relevant display page. Tracked machines have automatic sectored lifting duties for over the front/rear operation and over the side.

Load charts are ISO10567 compliant.

Suitable for

  • Excavators
  • Special purpose machine

Height Control

All motions are individually controlled with feather touch ramped hydraulic slow down and soft stop. Eliminating the machine bounce, overshoot or undershoot, which is gentler on the machine and safer for the operator and their surroundings. An optional chassis sensor can be installed to correct for terrain slope.

Slew Control

Controlling the slew of any machine used in construction is an important part of the safety and productivity equation. This is a part of the site safety puzzle that is often overlooked by contractors and their operators but can be simply addressed with the right equipment.

Rated Capacity Indicator (RCI)

RCI is a rated capacity indicator that ensures the safe operation of lifting equipment throughout the machine’s working envelope. The system continually measures the height, radius and load on the machine, allowing operators to work at the maximum lifting capacity whilst remaining within the machine’s safe working load (SWL).
