RCI System Installation for Excavators

Pandrol offers fitting and installation of InTeEx’s Rated Capacity Indicator (RCI) systems onto 360 excavators, which offer a variety of safety-enhancing features:

  • Height limitation to prevent the boom from lifting above the maximum permitted height.
  • Slew limitation which prevents the machine from swinging outside the permitted zone, such as into adjacent track. This can be set using either an angle limitation or with the use of a virtual wall.
  • Load limitation to prevent the machine from unloading the rail wheels or even tipping over due to overload.

These functions can be set and activated by the operator using the display inside the excavator cab. All limitation functions are controlled by proportional valves, which ensures that all movements are slowed down softly when approaching the set limitations. The system is built from industrial standard components, fit for the environment of an excavator. The system can be fitted onto all types of 360 excavators and works with features including boom swing, knuckle boom, and pendling axle.
