Mining Truck Logger for Diagnosing Hydraulic Failures
Case Studies / QSC
About: QSC creates customized electric, hydraulic and pneumatic solutions for mobile controller, sensor and industrial systems - e.g. within mining and agriculture
What problem did you solve?
We needed to resolve an intermittent hydraulic failure causing expensive downtime for a mining dump truck - this required isolation and diagnosis
How did you solve it?
We used the CL2000 to record sensor data over several months on our customer's equipment at a remote mining site. Specifically, the customer fed several analog signals to a QSC unit, which would digitize the signals and transmit them via J1939 to the CL2000's SD card.
What benefit has this led to?
After several weeks the hydraulic failure occurred again - and with the CL2000 we managed this time to capture the data for analysis!
"My overall experience with CSS was outstanding!
Thank you for selling an excellent product!"
Why did you choose the CLX000?
- The excellent data manual clearly describes the interfaces & toolset
- The SD card was well-suited for the extremely remote environment (a radio would be best, but far too expensive)
- Reasonable cost, ruggedness - and compact size, yet large memory
- Great support from CSS on technical questions
