HYDREMA 910MCV2 - SAFETY
Safety at work – even in a minefield
Safety is a major priority! Both the front and rear chassis are made of high tensile steel giving maximum protection against damage. The cabin is armoured to offer protection against firing and mine fragment debris up to a level of 7.62 x 51 mm AP, and there is a special blast deflection plate under the cabin to protect the driver in case of explosions below the vehicle. In addition, between the flail unit and the rest of the 910MCV2 a deflector shield of armoured steel protects the vehicle against the pressure and the fragments from the explosions under the flail unit, and by following the ground contours both horizontally and vertically it ensures that mines do not slip under the vehicle. This is supported by the articulated chassis, which enables continued earth contact during the whole clearing process.
To support the driver, the 910MCV2 is equipped with a computer system that enables electronic supervision and control of the main parameters and offers the choice of automatic driving. In automatic mode, the operator selects the terrain type, and the clearing is then fully automatic with automatic depth control. The system has been developed to provide the operator with extremely user-friendly information regarding adjustment as well as monitoring of information.
The safety arrangements, together with the comfort offered in the cabin, give the driver good working conditions even at long hours of work and reduce the risk of human mistakes.
A comfortable cabin
The 910MCV2 only requires one driver, but its comfortable cabin offers space for the operator, a commander and an instructor during transport or mine-clearing operations as well as space for additional equipment. All seats can be turned to forward or reverse position depending on the direction of operation.
The cabin has computer-controlled equipment for monitoring the engines and the flail and for controlling the vehicle during driving and mine clearing. From inside the cabin, joysticks control all important flail functions. Built into the armrests of the operator’s seat -providing easy and ergonomic operation. All the windows are heated in order to prevent misting and to allow good visibility in all weather conditions. The cabin is equipped with a fresh air heating system as well as AC.
