| Sway Control
Sway Control limits the load swing that can lead to production delays and downtime. Without the distraction of managing sway, crane operators can focus on their surrounding environment to select a safe traveling path for faster load handling and more precise positioning.
A recent study confirmed that cranes with Sway Control are 60% faster than an ordinary crane.
Inching improves accuracy by allowing the operator to move the load in small increments of 2 mm to 100 mm. The crane stops after it has moved the set inching distance. Operators can set increments on the user interface when starting up the crane, with the possibility to program a different distance for each motion.
Microspeed allows operators to preprogram the controls anywhere from 1% to 99% of the full speed range. Instead of moving the joystick only a tiny amount to control the crane at a slow speed, crane operators can use the full range of the joystick’s movement while still not going over their maximum desired speed.
| Snag Prevention
Snag Prevention constantly monitors the rope angle and automatically stops crane movement if a hook, sling or load accidentally catches on something while the trolley or bridge is in motion. This helps minimizing the damage to the crane, load or other machinery nearby.

| Target Positioning
Target Positioning moves the load from one of eight home positions to one of 120 possible preset target positions within a predefined area. The crane slows down, stops and lowers the load at the set target point. Just one button automatically returns the crane to its home location.
The Konecranes Target Positioning feature has been designed to reduce cycle times and to enhance safety.
| Protected Areas
Protected Areas allocates up to 16 permanent “no-go” zones to limit the crane’s movements to preset working areas only. This feature maximizes crane operating space, while helping to reduce the risk of accidents, equipment collisions and load damage.
| End Positioning
End Positioning allows operators to set the exact destination of a load and the outside area, or “window” for manual navigation. Once the operator brings the crane to the window, the End Positioning button automatically sends the crane to its final position. As a safety feature, the operator lowers the load manually to complete the movement.
