Centurion electrical control system

The Centurion electrical control system provides superior performance, monitoring, and data integration capabilities.

The supervisory controller, with direct integrated communication with the motor drives, allows precise motor control and fast cycle times. Real-time multi-tasking capability means optimal machine logic sequencing, monitoring, and control.

The I/O system uses the Profibus communication protocol for seamless integration of all shovel subsystems. Low-voltage 23V DC I/O drop points feature open- and short-circuit detection for improved diagnostics and troubleshooting.

The graphical user interface features intuitive, icon-based screens that display vital information, including shovel status, troubleshooting information, and optional production monitoring data and operator feedback.

Learn how Centurion maximizes your shovel’s efficiency.

PreVail remote health management system

The PreVail remote health management (RHM) system provides timely and efficient machine health and performance data. The PreVail RHM system taps into the powerful communication, command, and control capabilities of the shovel's electrical control system, transforming the data into valuable knowledge, including KPI (key performance indicator) dashboards, graphical analysis tools, predictive modeling, and reporting tools.

When you activate PreVail RHM on your 4100XPC shovel, you have access to:

  • Increased asset performance visibility to help you determine when to intervene, minimizing corrective action costs
  • Valuable risk management tools that help reduce troubleshooting time and mean time to recovery
  • Key performance indicator (KPI) benchmarking that makes performance gaps more visible and allow you to set in motion corrective measures to maximize productivity
  • Operating practices analysis that allows you to review and correct operators that are not following best practices for optimal productivity

The initial subscription period of one year is included free; after one year, subscription fees apply.

Learn how PreVail can help you maximize your shovel’s productivity.

Advanced control technology

Advanced control technologies include the following:

  • Temperature monitoring system for all DC motors, drum shaft bearings, and shipper shaft bearings
  • Drive programming and analysis software
  • Control logic software
  • I/O device monitoring and fault detection
  • Remote health management
  • Extended speed range in hoist and crowd
  • Automatic Boom Soft Setdown (ABSS) and Boom Profile Protection Envelope to help prevent excessive loading to the attachment during operation
  • Anti-swing-in-bank system to reduce excessive side loading on handle and attachment
  • Hoist, crowd, and retract limits
  • Automatic lubrication and compressed air systems control 

LED lighting package

Complete high efficiency LED lighting available for internal, external, and emergency lighting.

Fleeting sheave hoist rope guide

Includes dual steel sheaves which channel and maintain contact with the hoist ropes as they travel between the hoist drum and boom point sheaves, decreasing rope wear and improving hoist rope life.

Cold weather equipment

Optional extra heaters and insulation protect both your operator and the shovel in temperatures that reach -40°C.

Track Shield collision detection and mitigation system

Developed with extensive shovel operator input, Track Shield is the only automated operator-assist technology on an electric rope shovel that detects and helps prevent a dipper from striking the crawler.

Learn how Track Shield can help prevent dipper strikes.

Universal shovel interface system

The universal shovel interface allows your shovels to send and receive data with any mine management system, including ModularTM, JigsawTM, and WencoTM systems.

On the shovel side

The Centurion electronic control receives information, such as the following, from the mine management system:

  • Haul truck information, including capacity, truck model and ID, and material code
  • Delay codes
  • GPS location of the shovel

On the mine management side

The mine management system receives information, such as the following, from the shovel:

  • Shovel faults
  • Propel start/stop times
  • Payload data, including cycle times and payloads

This information sharing means reduced operation costs, improved production data, and key performance indicator tracking.

Learn how the universal shovel interface can help you maximize your shovel’s productivity.

Payload dipper payload monitoring system

The P&H Payload system provides accurate, reliable payload measurements, coupled with simple system calibration, that allow your operators to optimize their loading processes.

The system provides the shovel operator the weight, in tons, of the material in the dipper. Since there is a target payload based on the haul truck’s size, this information allows the operator to load the truck – every time - to the exact target payload.

Learn how Payload can help make truck loading more efficient.

Adaptive Controls 2

Improve shovel productivity and dig performance with a suite of integrated control functions that optimize shovel production while lessening the effects of impacts on the machine.

  • Increase digging power without sacrificing mechanical components
  • Reduce boom jacking and other loads from impact and operator error
  • Decrease operator fatigue from machine shock and rocking motion

Learn how Adaptive Controls 2 can improve your productivity and dig performance.

Diverter Test Panel

The diverter test panel is designed to allow a tester to remotely test the electrical operation of the diverter circuit on board a DC shovel. Key diverter circuit components are housed in the panel which is located within the machinery  house, outside the converter cabinet itself. By allowing the tester to perform all testing from a safe location, away from the potential high voltage hazards that exist inside the converter cabinet, the risk of arc flash or electrocution is minimized.

Learn how the Diverter Test Panel helps protect your tester.

Online vibration monitoring 

Online Vibration Monitor 2 provides predictive diagnostics on shovel motion mechanical components to hep minimize downtime. This permanently installed predictive diagnostic tool and service helps detect early stage defects in motors, bearings and transmissions prior to catastrophic failure.

  • Monitor while producing: Operational mode records, validates and uploads data during normal production with no operator input needed
  • Proprietary data selection algorithm records only good, valid data
  • Analysis provided by a live expert with OEM knowledge
  • View your data from your internet-connected device using the Remote Health Monitor interface
  • More than one million data points from across the fleet are available to Komatsu analysts for comparison
  • With the hardware-as-a-service (HaaS) option, you no longer need to worry about owning the hardware or purchasing hardware upgrades.
