The Engcon Ready option has the components of the Engcon control system fully integrated as a part of the machine, enabling plug and play installations
Swedish manufacturer Engcon has introduced its third generation tiltrotator system for the Doosan DX225LC-7X series of excavators.
According to the company, which also specialises in quick hitches and accessories for excavators, the Engcon Ready option is the result of ongoing collaboration between Doosan and Engcon, with the aim to provide an integrated solution between the tiltrotator control system, and the machine with all its onboard functions and features.
The Doosan DX225LC-7X is a fully electro-hydraulic excavator with factory provided 2D machine control and the latest Doosan technology. As part of this technology, the machine is Engcon Ready which allows it to be equipped with Engcon’s MIG2 Grips and 3rd generation of control system, DC3.
In late October 2022, Doosan unveiled its ‘all-in-one platform’ for smart construction and, later in the month, Caterpillar said it had expanded its Tilt Rotate System range to work with mini excavators.
The Engcon Ready option has the components of the Engcon control system fully integrated as a part of the machine, enabling plug and play installations and so reducing installation times for Engcon products, the company explained.
The control system and machine controllers communicate over CAN (Controller Area Network), which allows for a multitude of data to be exchanged between the two systems at very high speeds.
“The deep integration allows Engcon and Doosan to create a better operator experience,” said Fredrik Eklind Control System Product Owner at Engcon.
In November 2022, Hidromek introduced its new earthmoving machinery series.
He added, “It allows the operator to get an overview and configure the functions of the MIG2 Grips directly in the Doosan machine display. The high accuracy Engcon Rotation and tilt sensors are also directly integrated with the Doosan semi-automatic machine control solution, weighing and assist features without the need for a third-party sensor installed in the attachment making it truly integrated with the machine.”
