Brake Remote Control

Hard-Line RRC

The brake release unit is used when a remote controlled machine is stuck in the stope with the brakes applied and no way to release them. The Hard-Line Remote Brake Release Unit was developed to allow an easy solution for this situation.

The operator types in a 4 digit code and then holds the release button on a compact transmitter. Each machine is equipped with a separate hydraulic pumping system and a hydraulic circuit to release the machine’s brakes. Once the brake pressure is met, the hydraulic pump is stopped. If the hydraulic pressure drops, the pump automatically re-starts. When the operator releases the button, the brakes will reapply.

• The perfect solution to a common problem

• Can be retrofitted to any machine

• Built-in fail-safe coding, ensuring operator safety and control

• Testing and diagnostics are built into the system

• Does not rely on physical, mechanical components which stick over time
