MIG 2

Optional extra

 

engcon’s new MIG2 control for excavators combines maximum ergonomics and functionality. The control has been developed for maximum ergonomics, without compromising on increased safety and control functions.

MIG2 has been developed in collaboration with contractors and a company specialising in industrial design. The joystick can be fitted with three rollers and seven buttons – twice as much with two joysticks. The driver is also able to work with maximum efficiency and at the same time avoid bodily stress and strain.

The control has an integrated hand support that the wrist rests on without affecting the excavator motion. The hand support is flexible and can be adapted to different hand sizes.

MIG2 isn’t only ergonomical, it provides the driver/operator new means of working. The control’s rollers are intended for use by the thumb, index and middle fingers – something that’s unique to us.

In this way the driver/operator can combine six rollers simultaneously.

FAQs

What is MIG2?

MIG2 is engcon's joystick for infinitely variable tiltrotator control. It has up to three rollers for stepless tiltrotator operation and up to seven buttons for connection to other functions. It's also possible to select an FNR rocker switch to control track and comfort steering.

How does a tiltrotator work?

The tiltrotator is connected directly to the excavator's arm or beneath the excavator's quick hitch. The tiltrotator is then connected to the excavator's hydraulics and electrical system. Depending on the excavator's extra hydraulics, control is adapted to suit different types of control system. The most common connection takes place via a single or double-acting extra outlet on the arm and the tiltrotator is controlled by a proportional control system known as DC2. The actual control unit (cab module) is located in the cab and the tiltrotator's functions are controlled using our MIG2 – joysticks with rollers that allow the operator stepless control of the tilt, rotation and grip functions if a grapple has been selected for the tiltrotator. Signals from the joystick and the control unit are received by solenoid valves on the tiltrotator, thus controlling the function selected.

Can I use MIG2 together with any control system other than DC2?

Yes, but we cannot promise it will be possible to operate three rollers simultaneously.
