New digital operating concept from Kleeman
By Andy Brown26 October 2021
Kleeman has added an extension to its digital operating concept so all relevant process information and reporting are now displayed on a smartphone, meaning no one has to leave the feeding device.
The company – part of the Wirtgen Group – said that the extension to digital operating concept SPECTIVE makes it the sector leader regarding user interfaces.
The plant is started via the 12 inch SPECTIVE touch panel directly at the plant and, once it has been set, runs in automatic mode. When a plant train is used, after initial set-up, the operator can connect to the complete plant train, not just each individual plant.
As a new feature, the radio remote controls have been integrated. Using the large radio remote control, the plants are moved from the low loader and the set-up procedure can be carried out at a safe distance from the machine. The small radio remote control can be used to execute all relevant functions comfortably from an excavator.
Diesel fill level, average fuel consumption, average plant performance, gap setting, utilisation rate and other process data can be displayed at any time via the dashboard. In most cases, operators no longer have to leave the driver’s cab or interrupt the ongoing process. They can detect, for example, via a smartphone that the diesel fill level is low and order fresh supplies directly from the driver’s cab.
Operators can see the machine utilisation rate at a glance and therefore regulate loading. They can also receive data on the daily output already achieved and compare it to the previous day.
SPECTIVE CONNECT is currently available as an option for the new jaw crushing plant MOBICAT MC 110(i) EVO2 and the new cone crushing plant MOBICONE MCO 90(i) EVO2, with plans for other machines to be equipped or retrofitted. The app can be installed on iOS and Android smartphones.
