Ponsse launches modern forest machine computer
PONSSE Opti 8 is a state-of-the-art touchscreen computer designed for PONSSE forest machines. User-friendliness, a large high-resolution display, high ergonomics in the cabin and responsiveness form the basis of the technical and visual design of the PONSSE Opti 8 computer: all factors that improve the working conditions of forest machine operators.
The new Opti 8 computer offers more power and memory than the previous version, experienced by users in faster and smoother operations. The storage capacity of the hard disk has been doubled to ensure the operation of future applications.
“The design of PONSSE Opti 8 computer focuses, above all, on its use in a demanding forest machine environment. The computer is developed by Ponsse, together with the Group’s technology company Epec. Opti 8 computers are manufactured at Epec´s production facility in Seinäjoki”, says Markku Savolainen, Ponsse Plc´s product manager, equipment automation. “Opti 8 allows us to make the control systems of PONSSE forest machines more user-friendly than before”, Savolainen says.
The Opti 8 computer will come as standard in PONSSE harvesters and forwarders from the beginning of 2021.
