This anti-ice machine, with enclosed operator cab, sprays chemicals, and heated, pressurized air during an aircraft de-icing procedure. Operator safety, smooth proportional control, and up-time are critical performance criteria for this machine. The previous design allowed limited control from the suspended cab with no diagnostic capabilities.
The total machine control solution provided by GS Global Resources (GSGR) provides smooth electro-hydraulic proportional controls which can be operated from the cab at the end of the boom, or on the ground. The new control system results in greater machine and operator efficiency, and precise chemical application. To increase vehicle uptime, an innovative remote diagnostic system monitors critical machine performance parameters linked into satellite, cellular, or modem communication devices, resulting in easy, remote troubleshooting.
