BASIC SYSTEM INFORMATION
This low temperature system uses heaters for stable system operation in a
subzero climate. The main electronics are automatically warmed before the
system boards and components are energized. Therefore, all system
components must be installed and sealed from the environment when operating
and/or troubleshooting in low temperature conditions.
For system operation refer to TM 5-3810-307-10, Appendix G
The PAT Load Moment Indicator (LMI) DS 350 has been designed to provide the
within its design parameters.
Using a variety of sensing devices, the Load Moment Indicator (LMI) System monitors
various crane functions and provides the operator with a continuous reading of the crane's
capacity. The readings continuously change as the crane moves through the motions
necessary to make the lift.
The LMI provides the operator with information regarding the length and angle
of the boom, working radius, rated load and the calculated total weight being lifted
by the crane.
If prohibited conditions are approached, the DS 350 Load moment Indicator
will warn the operator by sounding an audible alarm, lighting a warning light, and
rendering inoperative those functions that may aggravate the crane's condition.
