Reversing conveyor movement
In order to avoid mix dropping from the conveyors during a move of the paver on the job site, conveyor movement can be reversed at the push of a button. Reverse movement, transferring mix from the rear of the conveyor tunnel back inside, takes place for a short time only and stops automatically.
The no-load function is provided for the warm-up or cleaning of conveyors, augers and tamper.
AutoSet Basic Repositioning function (option)
With the AutoSet Basic Repositioning function, the paver is quickly and safely prepared for a move on the job site at the push of a button. After the move, all paver components are reset to their previous working positions, simply by pressing the button again. This ensures that no settings are lost when changing between “Pave” and “Job Site” modes. AutoSet Basic also effectively prevents damage during transport.
Choice of operating modes for the paver
All the main paving and machine functions can be controlled directly by individual push-buttons on the paver operator’s ErgoPlus 3 console. By pressing the arrow buttons, up or down, the operator changes modes in the following order: “Neutral“, “Job Site“, “Positioning“ and “Pave“. An LED indicates the mode selected. When leaving “Pave“ mode, a smart memory feature stores the last settings for paver functions so that, when resuming work after a relocation of the paver on the job site, these settings are restored automatically
Safe operation during the night
Glarefree backlighting comes on automatically as darkness sets in so that the paver operator can also work safely on night-time jobs
Display of the paver operator‘s console
The redesigned colour display has a high-contrast user interface ensuring brilliant readability even in poor lighting conditions. Vital information is shown on menu level 1, such as the pave speed and the material level in the conveyor tunnel. Further paver functions such as tamper and vibrator speeds or auger feed rates can easily be set up via the display, too. And the display gives access to machine-related information such as fuel consumption or service hours.
PaveDock Assistant (option)
With the PaveDock Assistant signal lights, the paver operator can give the driver of the feed vehicle unmistakable signals, indicating what needs to be done (e.g. reverse, stop, dump mix). The lights are conveniently activated directly from the paver operator’s ErgoPlus 3 console.
Choice of engine speed ranges
For the engine, there is a choice of three modes to select from: MIN, ECO and MAX. To switch modes for engine rpm, all the operator needs to do is press the arrow buttons, up or down. In ECO mode, the engine delivers sufficient power for a great number of paving applications. Operating in ECO mode reduces noise emissions and fuel consumption considerably
Screed Assist (option)
This button switches Screed Assist on (LED lights up) or off. Screed Assist pressure and balance can be set via the display. Screed Assist is active only when the screed is floating.
