WR820 underground water truck receives RCT Control Master treatment

RCT and Tasmania-based Caterpillar OEM Elphinstone have again teamed up to provide a custom Control Master® portable teleremote solution for a client in Indonesia.

RCT Custom will apply this technology to an Elphinstone-manufactured WR820 articulated underground water truck; the second time it has done so for the same client.

The portable teleremote solution works by using cameras on board the machine to relay vision of its movements to the operator, who can then oversee the machine via remote control.

The machine’s tramming and the articulation of the water cannon mounted on the crane can be controlled by RCT using looms and hydraulics installed and manufactured by Elphinstone to RCT specifications.

RCT said: “This wasn’t a straight forward installation, hence why RCT Custom was tasked with the job.”
