Non Accident Generation – for a safer working environment

Through the "Non Accident Generation" the engcon Group is increasing focus on safety at the workplace. All products from engcon that are branded "Non Accident Generation" set a new safety standard and are designed and built to create a safer workplace.

Change task quickly and safely

engcon offers the market's newest, safest coupler – Q-Safe™ – which can also be fitted with EC-Oil™ to connect hydraulics, central lubrication and electrical circuits automatically. The choice is yours – choose between everything from a mechanical attachment up to our latest Q-Safe™ and EC-Oil™ quick coupler systems that automatically connect electrics and hydraulics.

Q-Safe™

  1. Hydraulic locking with threefold safety:

    1. Electronic sensors detect when both pins have contact

    2. A check valve prevents the hydraulic cylinder from opening even if a hose ruptures or there is a pressure drop

    3. Powerful, exterior springs keep the coupler locked even if the electronics and hydraulics fail

  2. The tool can only be removed when it is resting on the ground at a given pressure (option).

  3. Front and rear locks eliminate the risk of accidents caused by swinging tools and attachments.

  4. Longer "shark jaws" for easier, safer tool pick-up. Hook safety classification complies with EN ISO 12100-1/A1:2009 and EN ISO 12100-2/A1:2009.
  5. Q-Safe is delivered with light and sound warning devices to alert people in the surrounding area as standard.

Rotate as you want to – tilt up to 45°

If the tilt function is not needed, a rotator goes a long way. engcon's rotators fit all excavators and backhoes, and offer unhindered rotation. The rotator is supplied with hose, quick couplings and electrical installation equipment. You choose the control system to suit your needs and the scope of the machine.

The tilt attachment gives machines not requiring a rotator function the ability to tilt all kinds of buckets and tools by ±45 degrees. A powerful and cost-efficient alternative, adaptable to all types of excavator.

  1. All tilt couplers, regardless of control system, are prepared for tilt cylinder load bearing valves. All tiltrotators are fitted with tight hose protection that prevents oil from spraying out, for example in the event of a hose breach.

  2. All rotators and tilt couplers will be delivered with Q-Safe™ tool couplers, with or without EC-Oil™, in a phased program that began in the fall of 2013.

  3. All tool couplers on rotators and tilt couplers have double safety features so that the valve and springs activate the locking wedges in the event of a hose breach or other situation causing the system to depressurize.

Refined tools

engcon offers a broad range of hydraulic tools for your excavator. The tools are designed for maximum durability and are specially adapted to function together with engcon's tiltrotators and quick coupler connectors. Naturally the tools can be fitted with EC-Oil™ for fast tool changes directly from the cab.

Stone and sorting grapple

  1. Load valve and pressure accumulator retain the grab power for a long time and ensure safe lifting (SK).

  2. Meets European safety standards and prevents incorrect handling.


Ground vibrators/compactor plates

  1. Complies with European safety standards.

Grab the situation safely

Sometimes you need a helping hand at work. engcon's integrated grabs in high-tensile strength steel give you the perfect workmate for heavy objects, such as posts, manhole covers and curbstones. Check valves in each grab cylinder increase your workplace safety.

A new grab for railway – GR20RR (Grab 20 Rail Road) is a powerful integrated grab. This has been specially developed for tough environments synonymous with railway works, with heavy rail sections to be pulled and lifted by excavators.

  1. All tiltrotators with the SS9 control system (4-hose) that have an integrated grab have a so-called 'dump valve' that prevents any possible pressure surge when changing direction and thereby preventing the risk of unwanted opening of the grab.

QSC – Quick Coupler Standard Control

No one would come up with the idea of switching the placement of the gas and brake pedals in a car, as it would be directly lethal. Today, quick coupler controls, on the world’s excavators, are completely different depending on the make, model and market. With QSC, Quick Coupler Standard Control, engcon sets a completely new standard. With QSC, we put the controls for the excavator’s and the tiltrotator’s quick couplers on one and the same panel that is always mounted in the same place in the cab, on the right hand side, diagonally in front of the operator, regardless of the excavator’s make or model. The panel works with all types and makes of quick couplers and excavators*; QSC gives the operator a control with standardized placement and maneuvering of the couplers’ lock functions.

Independent control system

QSC is a completely independent control system for the excavator's or tiltrotator's quick coupler and replaces the excavator's built-in coupler lock system.
The system has its own keypad with a button to activate the excavator's quick coupler and one button to activate the tiltrotator's quick coupler. The lock buttons on the panel are clearly marked with easily recognizable symbols. This means that the operator always recognizes and uses the same method, regardless of the excavator’s or the quick coupler's make.

engcon takes responsibility

With the quick coupler locking system, QSC, engcon takes another step forward in their continuous safety efforts. A system that minimizes the risk of activating the wrong button or function when releasing the excavator’s bucket or other tools.

* QSC combined with the Q-Safe quick coupler, provides full functionality

  1. Slew and/or lift restriction, as well as sound & light alerts – with an incorrectly coupled bucket.
  2. Sound and light alerts - with an incorrectly coupled bucket.
  3. Ground pressure function - where a bucket or other tool must have ground contact to be able to be detached from the quick coupler. Other types of quick couplers only come with the ground pressure function.

QSC

  1. Controls both the machine’s and the tiltrotator’s quick coupler with a single control panel.
  2. Standardizes all lock functions.
  3. Compatible with all excavators, regardless of make or model.
  4. Also compatible with quick couplers of other makes *
  5. Optimized for Q-Safe quick couplers that delivers more safety functions:
    + Slew and/or lift limiting function
    + Sound and light alerts
    + Ground pressure function

The market's safest control system

DC2 meets the new safety standard ISO 13849-1, which places high demands on all components in a control system, such as hydraulics, electronics and software. Together with engcon's tiltrotators and Q-Safe™ the DC2 creates a safer and more secure working environment. DC2 also offers the option of track control and wheel steering and also moving the boom. A smartphone app allows a remote control function as a complement to PC and USB cable connection.

DC2

  1. The Microprop DC2 control system meets all current and known future safety requirements.

Tiltrotator – for maximum safety

Since their introduction in the beginning of the 1990s, engcon's tiltrotators have revolutionized excavator capabilities, and have provided increased flexibility and better economy. It is equally important that the tiltrotator makes the workplace safer. The tiltrotator increases safety by reducing machine movements and the need for manual work on site. engcon's constant development efforts continue to make work more efficient and safer. engcon's tiltrotators can be adapted to the majority of excavators and tractors on the market with machine weights of 1.5–32 metric tons.

  1. All EC02 & EC05 models, regardless of control system, are fitted with check valves on the tilt cylinder. This is because they only have one tilt cylinder and in the event of, for example, a hose breach no other cylinder remains to act as a "brake".

  2. All tiltrotators are fitted with tight hose protection that prevents oil from spraying out to the side, for example in the event of a hose breach.

  3. All tiltrotators will be delivered with Q-Safe™, with or without EC-Oil in a phased program from the beginning of 2014.

  4. All models RF, S30, S40, S45, S50, S60, S70 & S80 quick hitches have double-safety features so that valve and springs activate the locking wedges in the event of a hose breach or other situation causing the system to depressurize.

  5. Other models: EC209, EC10, EC15, EC219, EC20, EC2226, EC30 are fitted with load-bearing valves as standard (2 per cylinder) on models with the SS9 (4-hose) system and other models are prepared for fitting load-bearing valves.
