The E-fence ceiling feature sets a height limit for the boom. If that limit is reached, boom movement stops automatically, so you don’t touch power lines or hit overhead obstacles.
The E-fence floor feature creates a lower boundary the bucket is not allowed to breach. This protects the machine and operator from obstacles located at or below ground level.
Build a virtual barrier in front of the excavator with the E-fence wall feature. It limits the excavator’s reach, reducing the risk of front collisions.
If you work near traffic or in other congested areas, use the E-fence swing feature to set swing angles on each side of the machine. Swing motion stops automatically if those barriers are breached.
Activate an invisible barrier around the operator’s environment with the E-fence cab-avoidance feature. It prevents a bucket or other attachment from colliding with the cab, protecting the person inside and reducing the risk of equipment damage.
