Application Rate Enhancement
EMCAD (Electronic Mix Control and Diagnostic) & EMS (Electronic Monitoring System)
Other Key Information
Bergkamp’s EMS (Electronic Monitoring System) gathers data from paver functions and production about flow rates, material usage, ratios, and application rates. These reports appear on the EMS Screen and allow the operator to print paper reports. EMS 2013 and Newer can be retrofit with color monitor displays!! The major difference in the EMS and the EMCAD System is that EMS only monitors and gathers counts from the paver functions while the EMCAD System controls production. The EMS depends on accurate input and calibration of the M1 Series and M2 Series pavers to report but does not control the paver functions. EMS does not eliminate the need for calibration. Accurate manual calibration is very important to receive accurate reports from the EMS.
The EMCAD System simplifies and shortens calibration time due to:
- fixed aggregate gate
- elimination of manual calculations
- production monitoring in real-time
The easy to use touch screen walks the operator through the calibration steps, makes all calculations, and stores multiple material calibrations in memory. After calibration, simply enter the desired mix design and the EMCAD System will continually control production to maintain the ratios of the exact specifications of the mix design. By controlling the mix ratios, the EMCAD System eliminates the risk of using too much or too little emulsion decreasing profitability. This ensures a consistent, delivered product your customers can count on.
If you require a printed report of the materials your paver used, no problem! The EMCAD System monitors and reports on daily production rates. Using the onboard radar, it provides distance paved and uses operator paving width inputs to calculate actual application rate and area covered while the paver is operating. All daily report information can be printed using the onboard printer. The EMCAD System technology gets you paving quickly and keeps you paving with consistency.
The EMCAD System diagnostic features allow for quick field troubleshooting of electronic and hydraulic components, as well as, providing plain language error codes from the Cummins engine. No more prodding and poking with meters to determine why your system is down. With our diagnostics, your crew can quickly determine what needs to be repaired and get your paver back to work.
