This vibratory roller is used in many construction applications. The machine is subjected to a wide range of operating environments which present extreme conditions to the hydraulic and electronic controls. The initial machine configuration was not optimized for efficient operation.
GS Global Resources (GSGR) improved machine performance and efficiency by implementing a hydraulic and electronic controls design that is compact yet efficient. A hydraulic fan drive is used with a CAN controller allowing the fan to operate independently from the engine RPM. This fan drive package is integrated seamlessly into a CAN dash panel for a clean operator interface. The total machine control system can also include an electronic security token to prevent unauthorized use of the machine based upon user training and capability. Asset management features can be added that monitor engine hours, critical machine performance parameters, and provide crucial predictive and preventive maintenance information to the fleet manager.
