The conventional programmed excavator control (BPS) is used to automate bucket-wheel and bucket-chain excavators. The BPS consists of up to 6 functional units which can be used separately, or in any combination.
The following functional units (FU) are provided:
- Cutting depth
- Slice length
- Slewing angle control
- Cost control
- Cut-off at vmax.
- Lateral slope design
This state-of-the-art BPS technology not only ensures reliability, it also keeps both workers and equipment safer. ABB’s BPS has been used in a variety of open-pit mines around the world and has a long and proven track record of reliable performance.
