Featuring control area network (CAN) technology and an autonomous rate control system (ARC), the company's updated seal-coating machine is more efficient to operate and easier to service.

The machine's control system constantly checks every switch, coil, and indicator light for connectivity and functionality and alerts the operator as soon as any issues are detected. CAN features include less wiring and IP67 environmentally-sealed components for greater durability and fast/easy system analysis.

ARC is a computer-controlled and pressure-managed spray system that applies coating at whatever rate the operator selects. The operator answers a few basic setup questions and enters the desired application rate; the system takes over from there and readies the machine for application. There's no timing, no weighing, and no math. ARC adjusts material flow according to desired application rate, speed, and number of nozzles being used (spray width) to apply a uniform coating. In addition, when spraying material, ARC changes the joystick output to give operators greater control. The result is a highly accurate machine that applies the volume of material you have designed for the project. When the spray is set in “on” mode, the system limits speeds that could outpace a heavy application; in the spray “off” mode, ARC returns to the full speed range (up to 9 mph) for quick turnaround on high-production projects.

Thanks to the CAN, ARC constantly monitors all systems for possible deviations. If there is a potential issue, the ARC system knows before the operator. Warning lights and error codes point to the source of the problem and, in many cases, with plenty of notice to prevent down time.
