Every haul truck has a sweet spot — a target load volume that can mean enhanced profit and lower cost. Payload 2 helps hit that target by providing accurate, real-time weight of the material in the dipper, typically within five percent of a scale measurement.
Available as an upgrade on P&H electric mining shovels with updated Centurion control system and standard on all 4800XPC shovels. Note that a system audit will be conducted on any field shovel receiving this as a retrofit to verify compatibility.
Accurate and effective
Real-time feedback exceeds on-truck display speed and empowers your operator to adjust the loading process immediately. Updated kinematic model directly factors in the dynamic shovel geometry.
Automatic calibration helps maintain accuracy of position and weight after each load. No operator intervention means that the shovel can keep producing.
Full Centurion integration
Direct connection to the Komatsu Centurion electrical control system means that the Payload 2 system can leverage the actual operating parameters available to it without needing to estimate using other sources.
Key production metric tracking
Supplies the operator and Remote Health Monitor with 13 key metrics. Values tracked include: current and previous dipper payload, trended dipper payloads, current truck loading time, current deviation from target, current cycle time, swing angle, total tons this shift, and more.
Premium Komatsu shovel expertise
The updated Payload 2 algorithm, developed by Komatsu engineers and based on propriety knowledge of shovel dynamic performance, exceeds “bolt-on” solutions.
Shovel technology panel
Built on the new shovel technology panel that supports integration of the Adaptive Controls 2, Payload 2, and Track Shield 2 options, into a single hardware platform. Whatever combination of options you choose, only one shovel-installed panel is needed.
