Because the water pressure was dependent on the PTO speed, as the sweeper was driving down the road the water pressure would change.
In order for the water pump to maintain a constant water pressure that was independent of the sweeper speed a custom electronics was created. A standard actuator was used to stroke the pump and the new electronics monitored the water pressure. We also designed a custom control panel for the cab.
Requirements met for our customer:
- While operating the equipment the user doesn't have to monitor and manually change the water pressure.
- Customer mount and control panel
- Operator efficiency and saftey improvement
