1. ZX200X-7/ZX330X-7 ICT Hydraulic Excavator
Hitachi has released a new information-oriented construction hydraulic excavator model, which will play a key role in information and communication technology (ICT) construction solutions. Equipped with unique machine control functions, this hydraulic excavator is compatible with i-Construction* implemented by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) and supports ICT construction at various sites. When the bucket is tracking the target surface, automatic control of the boom motion enables construction with only arm operation, reducing the operational burden on the operator.
Also, an area control function is provided that allows the operator to set the restricted area for vertical and horizontal movement of the hydraulic excavator on the monitor using three parameters: height and depth, turning angle and turning radius, and surface. By prespecifying the area where the machine can be moved for a site with narrow spaces or obstacles, the speed of operation can be slowed down or stopped as the machine approaches the preset boundary during front or turning operation to assist operation by the operator.
