Single Channel Motor Controller (SCMC™)

SCMC™ is a manually regulated plow controller that adjusts the “contact weight” (downforce) that the moldboard of a snowplow exerts on a road surface. The system decreases or increases the contact weight of the snowplow depending on the position of the Set Point. This controller is able to transfer weight from the truck to the plow to increase the plowing capability for packed snow/ice. (This feature requires a snowplow designed for down pressure and the proper size truck).

Drive by Download DCE™

Drive by Download DCE™ (Data Center Edition) is a Wi-Fi data transfer system that collects, downloads and compiles application data. Transferring data using Drive by Download DCE involves a truck-mounted wireless bridge and antenna that communicates with a wireless access point or base station mounted in your facility. The operator drives within a 250-foot radius of the base station and data is automatically transferred for later analysis and reporting, resulting in usable information that can help you make effective decisions to improve overall operations.
