Camera system for luffing jib cranes


For all these cranes BCS developed an unique camera equipped with an electrical auto-tilt module.
This module makes sure that the camera is always pointed vertical and focussed at the hook or grab independently of the angle of the boom.
The tilting angle is manually adjustable from within the cabine to optimize the view. All the functions of the system can be operated by using the multifunctional wireless foot-pedal or the optional remote control.
The system can be equipped with a wireless transmitter/receiver or with a cable (depending on the type of crane).


  • The camera is insensitive for wind
  • The camera can be mounted at less damage sensitive places
  • The camera can change the viewing angle and therefore guarantees an optimal view

The system contains the following components:

Zoom camera, transmitter/receiver, foot pedal and wide-screen monitor.
