You may find yourself with the pressing need to upgrade the electronic controls on your mobile hydraulic machine but you don’t have the internal expertise to do the engineering, design, and programming. This is a huge problem! Eventually, even some of the larger OEMs realize that it is best to hire someone who has this expertise to do this work for you.
You and your integration partners will need to incorporate a complete system approach to upgrading your machine. This will require a lot of work by professionals that have a lot of experience implementing these systems on mobile equipment. But the long-term advantages will pay for these improvements for years to come. Download our guide below to get started.
Efficiency, ease of operation, dependability, and repeatability are all a part of our control design philosophy. Our controls engineers are experienced in programming, integrating Tier 4 engine applications, and applying CANBus controls and developing custom HMI screens that make your mobile machines easier to operate and troubleshoot. We also design and supply custom panels with custom enclosures that fit into your machine’s design and custom wiring harnesses to ease assembly and prevent wiring errors.
Vehicle electrification means converting a vehicle with a standard engine and drivetrain with hydraulic drive functions into a full electric vehicle or some form of hybrid version. With features like immediate torque and silent operation, coupled with premium performance and efficiency, electrification offers high productivity while lowing fuel and maintenance costs. Benefits of electrification:
- Improved Power Efficiency/Reduced Fuel Consumption
- Noise Reduction
- Lower Operating Costs
- Emissions Reduction
- Regenerative Braking
- Public Perception
- Ease of Use
- Simple and Safe
Advanced Diagnostics and Telematics
Troubleshooting a vehicle with electronics can be challenging and costly for your vehicle operators and service department. Our team of mobile hydraulic control specialists have developed several methods for diagnosing problems on your vehicle to help reduce downtime and reduce costs.
Custom display development offers local monitoring with advanced diagnostics with sophisticated I/O status indicators, fault condition icons, and CAN network health. Data logging can capture machine events with date and time stamp for evaluation.
Remote monitoring is also possible using a CAN to GSM radio modem to transfer data to and from the vehicle controller either in real time or for storage for later transmission to a server. If a Wi-Fi connection is available, the vehicle data can send data through a router to the cloud for storage. Local connectivity is also available through Bluetooth using a laptop or Android phone application.
