Adaptive Controls 2 is a suite of integrated control functions that optimizes productivity by the intelligent application of power, while decreasing potential damage, speeding repair and maintenance and promoting Zero Harm.
Reduce operator fatigue
Reduced rocking motion to increase operator comfort. Adaptive Controls 2 limits forward tipping during digging; Smart Crowd feature restricts tipping during impact and crowding into bank.
Promotes Zero Harm
Active Load Compensation* promotes Zero Harm to operator and trucks by helping the operator spot the load into the truck safely by reducing torque and speed when the dipper is heavily loaded. Smart Retract reduces structural loading by smoothing disengagement from the bank.
Optimized bank penetration and cutting force
Smart Crowd optimizes the crowd motion resulting in improved bank penetration in hard toe. Opti Toe* improves cutting force and encourages the operator to dig close to help increase productivity.
Adaptive Controls 2 is standard on the P&H 4800XPC and can be ordered as a retrofit upgrade on larger shovel classes with Centurion control system. 4100A and 2800XBP / 2800XPC (AC and DC models) with Centurion do not include Opti Toe or Active Load Compensation.
