No matter if it is a tailor-made joystick or operator assistance, clients can rely on the fact that our systems and products are built using an extensive, modular technology platform. This platform is manufacturer independent and meets all compatibility requirements for retrofitting. The client receives a solution which is highly suitable to the machine’s processes resulting in a noticeable increase in productivity. Furthermore: At any time the platform can be easily upgraded with additional features. This way the machine will continue to play a key role for the client – today and in the future.

The hard- and software platform’s integration is effortless. Clients have the possibility to combine or expand systems, products and components of their choice. In this way varying requirements can be fulfilled without any additional development. The components are compatible to a range of existing interfaces. Depending on the degree of desired assistance/automation and existing hardware, the client can opt for a complete system or individual components.

Key components of Vemcon technology platform

Terminal

The compact and
intelligent terminal
contains:

  • 7″ multitouch display
  • Powerful embedded Linux computer
  • Functionally safe
    module for calculating control and automation algorithms
  • Connectivity
    module

If desired, the terminal can also be integrated without
a display.

ToolTracker

The ToolTracker is an intelligent component of
the Vemcon tool manage-
ment.

The sensor measures vibrations and positions
at the tool in order to communicate the data
into the cloud or a terminal in the machine.

The ToolTracker has a particularly robust housing, is energy-saving and durable.

IMU sensors

The highly dynamic IMU sensors are used for the precise deter-
mination of the current angle and current angular velocity during dynamic movements. For example, they provide information
on how and at what angle the excavator arm and bucket are positioned.

IMU sensors have a compact and robust
design and are quick and easy to calibrate and parameterize.

Input Output Modules

The input and output modules are compact, robust, stackable modules for distributed control systems.

One function bundle of up to 8 functions can be controlled per module. The possibility of stacking the functionally safely developed modules or integrating them decentrally into the machine creates flexibility in purchasing and installation as well as cost savings. Individual modules can also be retrofitted as required.
