Scheuerle Updates Power Packs

Jan. 6, 2020 - Scheuerle has upgraded its Z180 and Z390 power pack units to make them more user friendly with a 12” touch display and optimized diagnostics.

The Z180 and Z390 PPUs are used to drive SPMT modules (Self Propelled Modular Transporter).

The new color display on the Z180 and Z390 power packs at the head end of the drive unit deliver high volumes of information in a neatly arranged easy-to-understand layout. Thanks to the clear, modern design, the operator can see the most important information on hydraulics, engine functions and fill levels at a glance via the start page of the main menu.


Operator always has an overview of all essential information

Important performance data, control data, and fill levels are displayed graphically in a clear and easily understandable way. Sensibly arranged control icons indicate special operating conditions as well as other essential information such as Adblue and fuel levels. The intuitive touch-screen control also provides the user with quick access to the various sub-menus and thus to all essential vehicle data.


Further developed electronics offer the vehicle operator numerous advantages

The model upgrade of the two PPU series is based on a comprehensive overhaul of the PPU electronics. This is accompanied by significantly improved diagnostic functions. Furthermore, this information allows the service technician to remotely guide the vehicle operating unit when troubleshooting. This saves time and money as well as increasing the cost-effectiveness of the transportation.


Power Pack Units Z180 and Z390 also suitable for extreme conditions

PPUs of the Z180 and Z390 series serve as drive units for the self-propelled vehicles of the SPMT series (Self Propelled Modular Transporter). They are suitable for use even under the most difficult of conditions such as extreme temperatures in deserts and Arctic regions. The Z180 drives 16 through to a maximum of 40 pendulum axles while the Z390 propels 26 up to a maximum of 80 pendulum axles (each with a 48-tonne axle load). The PPUs provide 180 kW (Z180) or 390 kW (Z390) respectively.


SPMT from Scheuerle

The  Scheuerle SPMT is a modular, self-propelled transporter that can be combined to form transport combinations of any size and thus theoretically offers unlimited payloads. With the introduction of the SPMT transporter, Scheuerle Fahrzeugfabrik has revolutionised the way in which the heaviest loads are transported and, at the same time, provides a modular concept that ensures efficient transportation to locations around the world thanks to its container-sized dimensions. As a result, SPMT axle lines from Scheuerle are in great demand as transport solutions around the world. No other manufacturer has more comparable axle lines on the market than Scheuerle.
