Enhanced Machine Automation with ToolRec: Efficient Tool Recognition

ToolRec is the key to the ongoing automation of work tool carrying machines. Automating functions today are completely dependent on knowing which work tool is connected to the machine. Small durable Tool Recognition Modules (TRMs) are mounted on the tools and assigned unique IDs. The TRM communicates wirelessly via a module in the cab and can be integrated with other systems and share information on connected work tools.

 

For tiltrotator control systems

The tiltrotator is an increasingly common attachment for excavators and is often controlled by a separate control system. These systems may also have to adjust their settings depending on which work tool is connected to the tiltrotator. With ToolRec in combination with tiltrotator control systems developed by SVAB, each ToolRec module can be configured with custom tiltrotator speeds. This helps the operator to always get the optimum performance of his tiltrotator and ensures minimal fuel consumption. With ToolRec’s open CAN bus interface the system can also be integrated with external tiltrotator control systems. Do you have a control system for tiltrotators and want to extend it with ToolRec?

For 3D Machine Control Systems

ToolRec can be used together with machine control systems and share information of which work tool is connected to the machine. This input can for instance be used to automatically change the Machine Control System settings based on the connected work tool. Are you a Machine Control System manufacturer and want to improve your system with ToolRec? Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

For excavator manufacturers

ToolRec can also for instance be used to automatically switch between different profile settings in the excavator control system which handles the auxiliary circuit for hydraulic powered work tools.Are you an excavator manufacturer and want to improve your machine with ToolRec?
