SVAB Launches a New Control System With an Open Interface for Tiltrotators
With the new Open Connect™ control system, SVAB wants to facilitate installations and support of tiltrotators, and at the same time make it easier for new markets and machine owners to take advantage of the benefits of a tiltrotator.
Open Connect™ is designed for machine manufacturers and dealers who want to be able to offer a standardized control system, and at the same time allow end-customers to choose a prefered tiltrotator brand.
Open Connect™ is a complete solution consisting of joystick grips, display, electronics and software that controls the hydraulics of the tiltrotator from the machine. The system has a new open interface that communicates with the tiltrotator’s own module, which in turn controls the hydraulics in the tiltrotator.
The new open interface will be compatible with the MiC 4.0 Bus, which is being developed within the German industry organization VDMA and the working group where SVAB together with the machine manufacturers Volvo, Liebherr and Wacker Neuson and the major tiltrotator manufacturers agree on a common protocol.
SVAB is also launching a new electronics module which can be connected between the CAN-bus joystick grips and the control system. The new module makes it possible to use the same joystick grips for other functions in the machine that are not controlled via the tiltrotator control system. This is made possible by the fact that the module can be easily configured to convert desired CAN-bus signals into several different commonly occurring signal types and functions. It could be, for example, that you want to use a button to navigate your GPS machine control system or a thumb roller to control some original function of the machine.
In addition to control of the tiltrotator, the system can also be equipped with functions such as wireless tool recognition, sharing of the tiltrotator’s sensor data to machine control systems, automatic tilt control and wheel or track control.
For fine-tuning of hydraulic settings, troubleshooting and for software updates, there is a user-friendly service tool developed for tablets.
