engcon Ready option added to Doosan smart excavator

ENGCON has announced the introduction of the engcon Ready option for the Doosan DX225LC-7X range of excavators.

The option is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Doosan and engcon with the aim to provide an integrated solution between tiltrotator control system and machine with all its onboard functions and features.

The DX225LC-7X is a fully electro hydraulic excavator with factory provided 2D machine control. The machine is also engcon Ready, which means it can be equipped with engcon’s MIG2 Grips and 3rd generation of control system, DC3.

The control system and machine controllers communicate over CAN (Controller Area Network) which allows for data to be exchanged between the two systems at high speeds.

“The deep integration allows engcon and Doosan to create a better operator experience,” explained Fredrik Eklind, control system product owner at engcon. “It allows the operator to get an overview and configure the functions of the MIG2 Grips directly in the Doosan machine display.

“The high accuracy engcon rotation and tilt sensors are also directly integrated with the Doosan semi-automatic machine control solution, weighing and assist features without the need for a 3rd party sensor installed in the attachment making it truly integrated with the machine.”

Stephane Dieu, Doosan excavator product manager for Europe, added, “engcon tiltrotators as an attachment is growing in popularity globally and especially in Europe. Making sure that our most advanced machine was prepared for this attachment was important and having it integrated with the rest of our machine technology offering was crucial.

“With the technologies combined the customer can see both improved productivity and flexibility. To shortening the lead times is something that both engcon and Doosan have been working on over many years and with the DX225LC-7X being engcon Ready the upgrade is quicker than ever.”
