The engine propel speed dial sets the maximum speed of the machine.0. Control of the Machine Speed at High Load Illustration 2 g00876645 Control of the Machine Speed at High Load (Block Diagram) https://127. When the foot brake is applied. the machine increases speed. When the switch (parking brake) is released. 04/03/2015 . When the propel lever is moved in the reverse position. When the lever is in neutral. no machine movement is commanded. The propel lever needs to be reset to neutral before propulsion is enabled. the machine moves at the maximum speed that is set by the engine propel speed dial. When the switch (parking brake) is applied. Page 2 of 6 Control of the Machine Travel (Block Diagram) The speed (acceleration / brake) and the direction (forward / reverse) of the machine travel is determined by the position of the propel lever. When the propel lever is moved in the forward position. the ECM shuts off the current to the solenoid valve (forward EDC) or to the solenoid valve (reverse EDC).KENR3108 . The actual speed of the machine is determined by the movement of the propel lever. When the propel lever is in the neutral position. the solenoid valve (parking brake) is de-energized.0. the brake is released. the machine will move forward. the machine will move in reverse.. The ECM uses the position of the lever to apply current to the solenoid valve (forward EDC) or to the solenoid valve (reverse EDC)..Media Search . the machine is stopped. When the lever is in the maximum position..RM-350B Reclaimer Mixer Machine Electronic Control .1/sisweb/sisweb/techdoc/techdoc_print_page. The brake is applied and the propulsion is stopped.jsp?returnurl=/sisweb/sis. As the lever is moved away from neutral..

The engine speed will decrease as the power demands are increased. Control of the Propel Transmission https://127. Note: The switch (rear steering) is active in all steering modes.0.1/sisweb/sisweb/techdoc/techdoc_print_page.. the rear wheels will turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels..Media Search .jsp?returnurl=/sisweb/sis. the rear wheels are moved straight ahead to a calibrated position. The ECM outputs current to the solenoid valves (rear steering) in order to move the rear wheels to the proper position. and the engine will not stall.0. Control of the Steering Illustration 3 g00876649 Control of the Steering (Block Diagram) There are four steering modes for the machine: REAR steering. the rear wheels are turned by the switch (rear steering).. the ECM will reduce the desired machine speed. During CRAB steering. The ECM continuously reads the position of the front wheels and rear wheels. when the rotor is engaged and when the machine is moving forward. During REAR steering. Therefore.RM-350B Reclaimer Mixer Machine Electronic Control .. 04/03/2015 . If the engine speed decreases below a specific value.KENR3108 . the engine speed will decrease. During FRONT steering. Page 3 of 6 The ECM determines engine speed by reading the signal from the sensor (engine speed). CRAB steering. Power demands are increased by going faster or by reclaiming tougher material. During COORDINATED steering. the rear wheels will turn in the same direction as the front wheels. The mode is determined by the switch (steering mode). Reducing the machine speed will reduce the power demand. COORDINATED steering and FRONT steering.

Page 4 of 6 Illustration 4 g00876653 Control of the Propel Transmission (Block Diagram) The switch (propel transmission) is used to determine the gear that is selected by the operator.Media Search . The ECM uses the ground speed to prevent the propel motors from overspeeding.jsp?returnurl=/sisweb/sis.0. The ECM controls the solenoid valve (propel motor) and the solenoid valve (propel transmission) in order to select the gear for the machine. The ECM will not allow downshifting if the ground speed is too high. 04/03/2015 ....RM-350B Reclaimer Mixer Machine Electronic Control .

When the switch (rotor mode) is in WORK.jsp?returnurl=/sisweb/sis. 04/03/2015 . If the switch (rotor mode) is in MANUAL.0.RM-350B Reclaimer Mixer Machine Electronic Control . The solenoid valve (rotor brake) and the solenoid valves (rotor transmission) are controlled by the ECM in sequence. the switch (rotor mode) and the switch (rotor depth). the display will flash. the rotor transmission is engaged. the rotor is moved to the work point. The ECM provides power to the solenoid valves. Page 5 of 6 Control of the Rotor Transmission (Block Diagram) The ECM monitors the engine speed and the switch (rotor control). After the solenoid valve (rotor brake) is energized for 2 seconds. the rotor is moved to the travel position.. To engage the rotor. If the work point of the rotor is accepted... the operator places the switch (rotor mode) in MANUAL. When the switch (rotor mode) is in TRAVEL. the operator stores the work point by holding the operator mode switch UP. The operator then adjusts the rotor depth by using the switch (rotor depth). the display will flash "Err".1/sisweb/sisweb/techdoc/techdoc_print_page.Media Search . Control of the Engine Fuel Shutdown https://127. When the desired work position is reached.0. the switch (rotor depth) can be used to raise the rotor and the switch can be used to lower the rotor. If the work point of the rotor is not accepted.. the engine must be run at low idle and the switch (rotor control) must be turned to ON.KENR3108 . To store the work point. Illustration 6 g00876658 Control of the Rotor Depth (Block Diagram) The ECM monitors the rotor depth.
