As construction markets recover from last year’s economic shocks, Equipment Manufacturers around the globe approach the new year with optimism. But difficult decisions remain.
With the introduction of the A92.20 machine design standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 2020, OEMs continue to seek automated solutions to meet the needs of their end users and customers. MOBA has already been assisting with safety compliance globally and is prepared for this new future of further global standardization, automation, and safety.
As the North American MEWP, mobile cranes, and access market move towards greater end user safety and standardization, rigorous certifications will follow for these machines. Now more than ever, OEMs need reliable, highly proven solutions for these construction machines.
For more than a decade, MOBA’s safety application development has been trusted by the biggest OEM names in the cranes and lifter industry, with millions of hours of use in the field on many different machines and applications including:
- Position controls
- Dynamic Terrain Sensing/Chassis stabilization
- Automatic Leveling systems for the cage
With this expertise and experience, MOBA is pleased to announce the MSS Slope CANopen Sensor family has been certified under EN ISO 13849 for performance level ‘d’ (PL ‘d’) by TÜV Nord, a leader in safety and security testing and certification. This International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification signifies the highest standard for safety in the industry, while also fulfilling the requirements for EN-280/A92.20 and PL ’d’ applications.
For OEMs this not only reduces liability, but also gives them peace of mind and the ability to spend less time in costly development and testing. Instead, they can turn to MOBA as a partner with experience and demonstrated machine automation track record to implement proven safety applications to their machines. With this certification, OEMs can be confident in their investment.
And with new safety standards on the horizon for the North American market, now more than ever OEMs can benefit from MOBA’s dedication to standardization, and a product catalogue of proven solutions. We have the expertise, the field hours, and the proven certification to ensure the best end results for the end users and OEMs.
