The iQ-View Smart Controller is available on their 3.0L engines for the Beever™ M12R, M12D and M12RX models.
The iQ-View, produced by Industrial Electronic Controls (IEC), is a smart display and controller that presents engine and machine parameters to the operator as well as controls the chipper’s auto-feed function. As a display unit, the user can select four parameters to display simultaneously. A second screen can be set to display four additional parameters. Either screen can easily be selected for viewing.
With the push of a button, the chipper operator can select one of three preset speed settings — for brush, wood or factory setting — plus a custom setting, to maximize machine throughput and productivity, eliminating difficult and complicated speed changes. No computer is required for field configuration. The reason for this development was to allow operators to have an easier way to adjust the feed for the different types of material they’re chipping. The settings are designed to optimize chipper efficiency, improve output and reduce downtime.
Simple yet extensive on-screen diagnostics allow the user to quickly troubleshoot system issues, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity on the job site. This will also reduce the need and expense for field tech support. The unit also features J1939 CANBUS messaging to alert the user of potential system issues like engine overheating, high oil pressure, low battery voltage and other critical operating issues that can affect uptime, performance and equipment life.
Additional input/output provides the ability to easily add future functionality to the chipper without adding additional devices. This allows for greater flexibility in incorporating future capabilities and the ability to quickly meet new market demands. While the iQ-View Smart Controller is initially being offered on the 3.0L engines for the Beever™ M12R, M12D and M12RX, Morbark expects to expand the use of these units to other gas-powered chippers and then to its diesel-powered chippers.
