The majority of people understand this technology, and troubleshooting is simple. This restricts your capacity to operate more sophisticated devices, though. A mobile rated controller (PLC) might be a better option for mobile equipment that need more complicated features or tasks, including linking to an electric engine.
A vehicle that is specifically built and developed to accomplish work is referred to as mobile equipment. Due to the nature of its construction, it is not appropriate for carrying passengers or cargo aside from its operators and crew. Unless specifically requested by the manufacturer, vehicles in categories L, M, N, O, and T outfitted with machinery shall not be regarded as mobile machinery.
The Global Mobile Machinery Controller market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The OMNEX multi-function two-way radio remote control with high resolution colour display was introduced by Cooper Bussmann, a pioneer in the fields of critical circuit protection, power management, and electrical safety.
The brand-new OMNEX TD3200 is a radio remote control of the next generation intended for smooth operation and precise management of transit mixers, concrete pump trucks, and other industrial gear. According to the maker, the multi-function radio remote combines ergonomics, integral two-way communications, and modern design into a durable and light-weight portable control unit.
The TD3200 provides a 3.5 in. transflective color LCD panel with rich diagnostic information, controls, and status monitoring. For greater productivity, two-way communication transmits machine status information to the operator via the visuals of the display, which are readable in both daylight and darkness.
Helios Technologies has introduced the uControl mobile machine controllers, a cutting-edge new product line created under its Enovation Controls brand that provides exact proportional control for heavy-duty machinery in extremely harsh situations.
The uControl mobile machine controllers are designed for heavy-duty equipment of all forms and sizes, feature many CAN channels, are incredibly durable, and provide entire machine control with accuracy fluid-power and equipment performance.
With a total of 26 inputs and 20 outputs, the uControl MC4-26-20 controller offers broad and software-selectable I/O. The uControl MC4-21-14-H8 high-current controller, which has 21 software selectable inputs, eight programmable high-current outputs, and 14 programmable standard outputs, joins it.
The high-performance TTC 2000 series of electronic control units (ECUs), which were created from the bottom up to suit the demands of intelligent vehicles, has been introduced, according to TTControl.
High processing power and a wide range of safety certifications are hallmarks of the TTC 2300 ECU family. This aids in the development of cutting-edge mobile machine architectures as well as the introduction of novel safety-related features by vehicle makers.
This is made possible via the TTC 2300’s H-Bridge outputs, which it also uses to control actuators and sensors for other machine functions. This improves the machine’s accuracy while also paving the way for an electrified and environmentally friendly future for mobile machines.
The MachineMotion V2 has been released by Vention (MMV2). Automating equipment on the production floor has never been simpler thanks to plug-and-play actuators and code-free programming. MMV2 enables users to wire equipment quickly, programme and simulate online, and begin automated production the same day.
The compact solution does away with specialized programming and standard automation control cabinets, resulting in lower project costs and quicker turnaround times for manufacturers.
Up to 1000W of motion control may be obtained with MMV2, which also features removable air filters, active cooling, and an IP30 enclosure. Dual channel, cross-fault detection, and reset line plug-and-play safety system; Nanotec CL4 servo drive; 32 GB SD-micro memory; high power clamp resistor for up to 1,000 W braking power; up to four 250 W step-servo drive; isolated class 2 power supply.
Eaton has introduced a new line of mobile control systems for field and heavy equipment usage. The 900 MHz two-way remote-control devices make it possible to wirelessly operate expensive equipment in challenging environments, such as the mining, building, agricultural, locomotive, and marine industries.
With customer feedback, their OMNEX wireless controllers’ newest generation of tough, weatherproof construction was created. These devices have a number of advantages, including increased machine operators’ security and productivity.
Overall, they’ve improved upon the connectivity and dependability that were always a competitive advantage over the competition – and people continue to develop their wireless technology in those areas.
Heavy equipment, including cranes, tow trucks, concrete mixers, vacuum trucks, and tow tractors, can be operated on a building site using wireless controllers. The advantages of remote operation include fewer employees required on-site and the protection of employees from potential danger.
The new devices can be set up to perform a broad variety of tasks and have a range of up to 1,650 feet. A crane could be raised and lowered, a mixer barrel could be rotated, and boom functions could all be electronically controlled by an operator from a secure distance. A screen, haptic reaction, or a series of light-emitting diodes can all be set as feedback mechanisms for the wireless controls.
To prevent the signal from being tampered with by an outside source, the units have experienced Eaton’s proprietary cyber security protocols, and sophisticated control algorithms ensure fail-safe operation. Each controller can be set up to communicate with a car that has a receiver built into its electrical systems, whether it be a machine or a remote vehicle.
The wireless controls meet the requirements of Ingress Protection Codes 65 and 67 (IP65 and IP67), are “dust tight,” and are shielded from water spray as well as total, continuous submersion in water. They have improved form, fit, and functionality, which makes them more manageable and comfortable to handle.
Improved radios and lithium-ion batteries are also included in the new control devices. The products, knowledge, and worldwide manufacturing capabilities from Eaton’s Electrical and Vehicle businesses were combined to create the company’s eMobility division.
In order to improve its global capabilities and provide intelligent electrification solutions to customers for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and off-highway vehicles, Eaton plans to continue developing new products and technologies, such as smart diagnostics, intelligent power electronics, and predictive health monitoring systems. The goal of Eaton is to use electricity management products and services to enhance both human and environmental well-being.
