ZIEGLER presents the new Z-Control

19. September 2020 | Press releases

Due to the rapid spread of coronavirus, the world's leading trade fair INTERSCHUTZ has been postponed to 2021.
The motto, “#whateverthechallenge”, that has been proclaimed for this event however still remains as guiding principle for ZIEGLER. The company now presents the latest innovations in the context of the “Innovation Rollout 2020”. After the ALPAS of the latest generation has been introduced to the market, the rollout now continues with the presentation of the new operating concept. 

10 reasons for the new Z-Control

  1. Identical user interface for all vehicles and components of the ZIEGLER Group: for the Ultra Power as well as for the Z-Class, for a standard vehicle as well as for a turret.
  2. Safe operation, glove-friendly and intuitive user guidance (through light color and light animation): only the functions that can be activated will be visible on the interface.
  3. Assistance system for warnings, errors, status displays and other information.
  4. Training mode possible – the entire system (the vehicle) optionally can be set on training mode and the operator can perform for example a simulated foam application.
  5. The housing consists of one shell each (in contrast to two shells before) and are sealed with the operating foil. Therefore the operating units are absolutely waterproof in both vertical and horizontal positions.
  6. Maximum flexibility in the combination of functions through modules that can be combined individually in various housings or in operating control panels. These can be used in standard or special vehicles and in the dashboard of the new Z-Class.
  7. New series of mobile intelligent control units such as Plug'n'Play or Multi-Connect interfaces are available on products and vehicles in a variety of ways.
  8. Ergonomic attachments to ensure that the control unit sits comfortably in the hand.
  9. Integrated telematics function for future access to all important data.
  10. Flexibly expandable according to customer requirements – if necessary, many functions can be changed, exchanged or added later.


The new Z-Control is available from now on for every type of vehicle and will already be used in the first vehicles which would originally have been presented at INTERSCHUTZ. Of course ZIEGLER will also report on the first vehicles with the new Z-Control. You can find more information in the official press release.
