Customer Case Study

13 Ton Hi-Rail Excavator

THE TASK AT HAND

The Ceres team designed a new custom control system for a customer’s Hi-Rail Excavator, the 13 Ton Hi-Rail Excavator. The control system allows the customer to control the rail gear and functionality dependent on operator input. The controls can vary dynamic braking electrically by controlling electric signals to back pressure valves. Additionally, with the use of telematics, the customer is now able to see the machine vitals during operation in the field.

The new system also removes the operator’s potential to damage the machine with a proprietary smart program. In the past, and operator could go in full reverse to brake the machine which causes damage. Our new controls eliminate this possibility.
