The MecMast is controlled by a software loaded on a USB drive supplied together with the mast. By installing it, the operator will be able to control the MecMast from a PC or a laptop. The control screen will display the exact extended height, the turning degrees (for MecMast with electrically turnable base), the actual current consumption, the working cycles and possible warning messages. The software is available in different languages. In addition, a simple remote control for up/down movements and a complete remote control with LCD display for all functions are also available.
The levelling system is a manually operated device specially designed for vehicle mounted masts. Its purpose is to adjust the mast inclination when the vehicle is on a slope, in order to grant to the equipment mounted on the mast top a horizontal working condition. It is composed by a lower regulating support bracket, equipped with two manual adjusting handles and an upper holding bracket equipped with an oscillating ring.
For the MecMast series Fireco have developed special mounting solutions which allow to move the mast assembly from the horizontal to the vertical position and vice versa. This option renders the mast in the retracted state more compact and reduces the space that is necessary for its installation. In addition, the possibility to tilt the mast down to the horizontal position facilitates the operators’ access to the mast top and thus makes it easy to mount, dismount or modify the equipment to be installed. The MecMast ROOF is a compact palletised configuration suitable for installations on vehicle platforms such as military trailers or trucks. Fireco manufactures a light and a heavy version of this product, both designed to perfectly suit customers’ needs. The 90° TILT mechanism is a unique device that is suitable for mounting the MecMast on the outside of a vehicle or on other structures. This mechanism allows the tilting of the mast from vertical to a position which is more accessible for the users. This permits to easily mount important payloads on the mast top without exposing the personnel to risky heights.
