Rockbreaker System Control Options
Radio Remote Controls:
Radio controls allow the operator to work safely from a distance - with a maximum sight line distance of 330 ft. approx.
Ergonomic Seat with Joystick Controls:
This option combines an ergonomic seat designed for the operator’s comfort, with the same smooth operation of the Rockbreaker system in the previous options.
The seat can be placed in an existing control room or enclosure.
The power supply is remotely located and has only 120V to 240V supply to the controllers. The 24V cable from seat to pedestal is supplied by BTI, the required length should be determined at the time of order.
Portable Electro / Hydraulic Joystick
This portable system consists of two dual axis joystick controls with a right-hand thumb switch for breaker fire. Controllers are mounted in a compact control box allowing operation from any position. An "on” light indicator and joystick power shutdown button (shutting down power to the central valve only) are located between the controllers.
The main control valve is located on the Rockbreaker pedestal and permits a manual override on all functions.
The signal from the joystick controller is fed through a multiconductor cable to an electrical activating module on each spool of the boom control valve. These modules provide sensitive control for the movement of spools through an internal pilot circuit giving smooth, positive control of all boom functions.
Remote Electro / Hydraulic Joystick Stand (Standard):
This system consists of two dual axis joystick controls with a right-hand thumb switch for breaker fire. The controllers are mounted on a compact control stand making it easy to locate in a crusher control room or other convenient area. An indicator "on” light and an joystick power shutdown button (shutting down power to control valve only) are located on the stand between the controllers.
The main control valve is located on the Rockbreaker pedestal and allows manual override of all functions.
The joystick controller signal travels through a multiconductor cable to an electrical activating module on each spool of the boom control valve. These modules provide sensitive control for the movement of valve spools giving smooth, positive control of all boom functions.
