Heyl & Patterson’s electrical upgrades are wired for peak Railcar Dumper performance. Providing improved multiple components for heightened throughout, smoother operation and reduced wear, with added safety features, our available components include:
- VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVE (VFD) – Increases the life-span of electrical/mechanical components to dramatically extend motor operation.
- PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLERS - Offers optimum precision and safety at every command phase.
- TAGLINE SENSOR - Intuitively senses integrity of railcar clamping.
- TAG READER - Creates a computerized manifest documenting all cars.
- SKU SPECIFICS - Instantly detects wrong-way cars to prevent coupling breakage.
- PLATEN WEIGH SCALE RETROFIT - Model dependent.
- CLOSED-CIRCUIT MONITORING/HISTORIAN - Problem tracking/performance evaluation profoundly enhanced through cameras/applications that document operating adequacy and efficiency.
