Actus was contacted by a company who manufactures custom controls for remote operation of heavy duty equipment.  Their clients presented them with the problem of remote controlling a small excavator by controlling some of the extensions.

Small Excavator

The problem they were facing was not being able to find hydraulic valves that were electrical, proportional, and would fit onto the machine.

Excavator actuators

The 722 Series ERC was found to be the best solution for their project.  After receiving and mounting the actuators, they controlled them with their own radio remote control system which were able to directly interface to the actuators.

We checked in with them after a few months had past.  “The actuators are working, they are an absolute treat!  Our client is very happy.  Thanks!”
