New Hypro +1 Operating System & MD430 Display

MD430 Display operating mode overview

The new HYPRO MD430 display has a lot to offer. The 4.3″ LCD-display shows all the information clearly both in the tractor cabin and outside in the direct sunlight with a 140° optimal viewing angle. The MD430 display will also have the option to change between several different languages.

For processors with diameter measurement you get 15 different tree assortment options. You have Spruce, Pine, Hardwood, Diverse 1 and Diverse 2 + the optional selections Pulp and Small Timber on each of the five tree species. This provides a more detailed log data and volume presentation ever used on a Hypro.

For Hypro 755 models, the new Hypro +1 Can-bus operating system combined with the new MD430 DA display gives the operator a big boost in production and efficiency. There are three modes for feeding control; “Manual” – which gives the complete decision control of feeding to the operator. “Length Auto” – which has four different options of preset lengths for the operator to choose from.

The third option is the big difference in the new Hypro +1 control system, the “Diameter Auto” mode, which follows an adjustable measurement table and decides which length to cut depending on the diameter of the log. For example, you can set “Spruce Timber” to be cut to 4.9 m if the log is between 17 – 50cm. If you then set “Spruce – Small timber” between 12 – 16cm to be cut at 4.3 meters and “Spruce – Pulp” 0 – 11cm to be cut at 3 m, then the MD430-DA display will make the decision for you to measure and cut according to the preset table. The machine will feed past the preset length, then back up, cut and start to feed again automatically. This system will increase productivity, greatly reduce wrong tree assortment selections by the operator and at the same time give the operators stress relief in their work. The same measurement table will also organise the saving of the log data’s volume presentation accordingly.

The new Hypro +1 joysticks have 5 buttons as well as a toggle switch directly on the joystick lever, this makes it possible to switch between tree assortment selections, preset lengths and to switch between processor/crane without releasing the joystick levers with your hands. The joystick box is now also smaller, making mounting in the cabin much easier in modern tractors.
