NOX Control

NOXProp+ & NOXProp Control system

The NOXProp+ control system provides more safety and precision. NOX Tiltrotator, quick coupler and attached tools are controlled effectively and conveniently with ergonomic joysticks by the smart NOXProp+. Easily retrofittable for each excavator.

Features are the individual function setting and the easy menu navigation thanks to the corresponding touchscreen. Integrated GPS, LTE, Bluetooth and WiFi link your machine with the digital workplace. In combination with our SmartTag, the connection with the fleet management is realized for maximum integration and effectivity.

TOUCHSCREEN:

ERGONOMIC CONTROL UNIT
  • Highly bright display - legible even at direct sunlight
  • Easy switch between different profiles
  • Locking/unlocking of quick coupler
  • Sensor control of the quick coupler
  • Tool profile settings
  • Adjustment of single function speed
  • Reliable ram mount

DF04 CONTROL SYSTEM

The DF04 control system requires 2 double-acting hydraulic circuits. Only two functions, e.g. rotation and tilting, can be realized simultaneously. In order to control the attachment or the quick coupler, one of the two hydraulic circuits is separated by a switch valve, installed on the NOX Tiltrotator. Therefore, up to two extra functions, e.g. quick coupler, can be realized.

MACHINE REQUIREMENTS FOR DF04
  • Hydraulic rotation circuit to control the NOX rotation
  • Hydraulic circuit with high flow controls tilt, additional functions and quick coupler
  • Control system for switch between tilt, additional functions and quick coupler
  • One free ON/OFF button at existing joysticks to control the switch between the different functions

DF04-CONTROL UNIT

DF06 CONTROL SYSTEM

The DF06 control system requires 2 double-acting hydraulic circuits for the rotation and tilt movement of the NOX Tiltrotator. For the use of a hydraulic quick coupler, an additional circuit is required. The tilt function can be switched by pressing a button on the joystick to the extra function controlling e.g. the opening and closing of a grab.

MACHINE REQUIREMENTS FOR DF06
  • Hydraulic rotation circuit to control the NOX rotation
  • Hydraulic circuit with high flow controls tilt and extra function, e.g. grab
  • Control system to switch between tilt and extra function
  • One free ON/OFF button at existing joysticks to control the switch between tilt and extra function
  • Original joysticks remain
  • No additional control required - all hydraulic circuits on the excavator
  • Each function needs a double-acting hydraulic circuit

DF10 DIRECT FEED SYSTEM

The DF10 control system requires at least 2 double-acting hydraulic circuits for the rotation and tilt movement of the NOX Tiltrotator. Including the lines of the quick coupler function, two other hydraulic circuits, e.g. open/close grab and open/close intergrated gripper, can be connected to the NOX Tiltrotator. Furthermore, an additional drain line can be installed.

MACHINE REQUIREMENTS FOR DF10
  • For complete control of the NOX, 4 double-acting hydraulic circuits are required: rotation, tilt, extra function 1 and extra function 2 (gripper), one quick coupler circuit
  • Special solution: division of one hydraulic circuit with a switch valve, so two different functions can be controlled by one control circuit. The switch valve has to be installed at an adequate place at the carrier machine or the NOX
  • No additional control required - all hydraulic circuits on the excavator
  • Original joysticks remain
  • No valves or cables on the NOX required
  • Each function needs a double-acting hydraulic circuit
  • Minimal configuration: 2 hydraulic circuits (tilt and rotation) when mechanical quick coupler and no hydraulic attachment
Always the right control system depending on the machine‘s hydraulic configuration

The table provides a quick overview on the different functions and for which control system they are available. Short summary on machine requirements:
Control systems:
  • CSP: NOXProp+ & NOXProp: Hammer/shear circuit
  • DF04: 2 x proportional double-acting circuits
  • DF06: 2 x proportional double-acting circuits (tilt and rotation), 1 x hydraulic quick coupler circuit
  • DF10: 2 x proportional double-acting circuits (tilt and rotation), 1 x hydraulic quick coupler circuit, 1 x double-acting high pressure circuit (compactor), 1 x double-acting low pressure circuit (gripper)

NOX Sensors

By means of the sensors, the manual staking out of the work area by a person is reduced, as the precise dimensioning is shown on the display in the driver‘s cabin. The controlled and exact excavation of the required amount results in large time savings and reduced fuel consumption. Furthermore, the attachments and the carrier wear less.

KINSHOFER equips the NOX Tiltrotator with the rotation sensor, the tilt sensor comes from the 2D/3D system provider. In combination with certain excavator systems and makes, the NOXGeo system allows for an auto-turning function.

NOXGeo – Sensor technology …
With the NOXGeo, sensors send position data to the digital control at the NOXprop+ touchscreen in the driver‘s cabin. Thereby, the attachments are connected to the digital technology of the excavator/ machine control. The NOXGeo system also allows the functionality to interface with 2D/3D systems of all common manufacturers thanks to the open system.

SmartTag Tool tracker

The SmartTag and the cloud-based tool management support the driver and operator with the efficient choice and detection of suitable tools for each special task. Operators have their complete fleet under control and thus avoid downtimes and maximize their tool workload.

The SmartTag combines two up to now separated functions in one sensor: tool detection and tracking. As digital type plate, the tool tracker files information on geometries, name, manufacturer, year, ID and operation (e.g. required operating pressure of attachment). At the same time, it gathers, analyzes and detects operating hours, cycles and work processes. Thansk to GPS position and timestamp, you receive data like when and where an attachment had been put down and how it had been used.
SYSTEM: SMARTTAG
The SmartTag is a microcontrol-based tool with a communication functionality via mobile radio and an internal storage to locally back up operating information, error information, etc. The unit only measures 15 cm, it is waterproof, shock resistant, thermo-stable from -25 up to 80 °C, shockproof and has an internal energy supply for approx. 2 years.
