HYPRO Equipment

HYPRO Equipment


HYPRO's processors are equipped with professional digital radio equipment. It meets the high speed/response speed requirements, with no delay and reliable radio control of the winch for maximum safety. It is specially designed with a dead man's switch, on/off function via transmitter and a highly impact-resistant case. Radio communication is automatically turned off if inactive for more than five minutes. 3 x AAA batteries are used for quick and accessible change of battery when needed, even in the field.

HYPRO Measuring computer MD430 – General information

The HYPRO MD430 measuring computer has an LCD colour monitor with large white numbers that are easy to read even in strong sunlight and a wide viewing angle. Starting and resetting measuring is always performed automatically via photocells – the user does not need to make a cut to initiate measuring. The computer is mounted in a heavy-duty metal casing and its design means that it can be tilted to achieve the best and most convenient viewing angle for the operator. The computer is supplied with two connectors – a 16-pin CPC connector for the processor connection and a USB-A connector with sealing where you can connect the MD430 to a PC and read out log data if any is stored. The computer can also be used together with HYPRO’s CAN tank sensor to indicate oil level and oil temperature, as well as a warning message that is triggered outside of recommended levels.

HYPRO Length Measuring Computer MD430

HYPRO has its own specially designed length measuring equipment developed to maintain the highest standards of reliability and durability in a tough working environment. The unit has inbuilt cable troubleshooting, measuring calibration and set servicing interval for the machine. The computer records each log cut and has an “amount counter” for each tree selection.

This software version is standard on the HYPRO 300.

HYPRO length and diameter measuring computer MD430-D

HYPRO MD430-D has length and diameter measurement, it saves log data for print out via USB and will suggest length to cut depending on the diameter of the trunk and the assortment list that the operator has set. Computer program and cables to connect the measuring computer and print out log data to a PC are included. If required, selection of tree species takes place by means of a simple press on the respective button for fir, pine, hardwood or misc. 1 and 2. Log data is registered automatically with each cut and is saved in the measurement list in the measuring computer. The unit also has inbuilt cable troubleshooting, calibration of length and diameter measurement, as well as set servicing interval for the machine.

This software version is standard on the HYPRO 450 XL (and on HYPRO 300 if diameter measurement is added).

HYPRO Measuring computer MD430-DA

HYPRO MD430-DA is HYPRO's latest and most advanced measurement and control system. It has a similar logging system software as the MD430-D, but it also has automatic functions for processing and logging with smart control via the processor’s assortment list and CAN. The operator can select to process the log manually via joystick movements, via pre-set length selections or via fully automatic mode where the computer itself selects length to cut according to the diameter of the trunk and the pre-set assortment list that the operator has set.

MD430-DA is a part of the HYPRO+1 control system and uses HYPRO Canbus mini-joysticks (EHC) and Danfoss CAN control boxes. The system has pre-sets for up to three different operators, enabling a range of settings to be stored for each operator in relation to crane- and processor control. For example, the driver can change the joysticks' hysteresis curves, ramp times, MIN/MAX speeds, balance and invert (turn) the direction for all crane functions etc.

HYPRO+1 control system can also be added on most grapple loader trailers with electrified valves for easy control, using the same HYPRO joysticks for the trailer as for the HYPRO processor to avoid double joystick setups in the cab.

This software version is standard on all 755 models. (MD430-DA is also standard on HYPRO 450 XL when “automatic feed to length” is selected as an add-on).
