Engcon upgrades control system for tiltrotators with improved compatibility, new functionality
The DC2 control system fits all excavator brands on the market, and can control the excavator's belt and wheels
In 2012, Engcon launched its proportional control system, DC2 (Digging Control) for tiltrotators, with an associated app for remote support via the mobile phone network.
Engcon has now updated the app with improved compatibility and a new easy-to-navigate user experience with improved performance and stability to optimize machine control and installation.
Engcon's DC2 control system fits all excavator brands on the market and can, in addition to controlling Engcon's tiltrotators, also control the excavator's belt and wheels as well as boom swing or variable boom function. The app enables remote access to the control system and has been updated to be more intuitive to use. The upgrade also means increased compatibility with the latest versions of Android and the most up-to-date smartphone models.
On installation, all control systems need to be calibrated. Previously, this was handled by an on-site service technician. Now, it can be done remotely by connecting the driver's smartphone directly to support staff. The setup also saves time in the case of troubleshooting, no matter where the machine is located. Engcon support can quickly locate the fault and, if necessary, send out a service technician with the right parts.
In many cases, support on control systems is about minor adjustments and with the Engcon DC2 and an Android phone no one needs to physically visit the machine to do this, saving time, the environment and money. A smartphone can be connected to the DC2 via Bluetooth and it is possible to switch between different operator profiles and tools or enter speed settings.
The new DC2 has been released first for Swedish users to ensure that the new app works as expected before it is released for use in the USA.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
