|Remote door operation from dumper cab
|Aggregate Industries at Stoneycombe Quarry, not far from Newton Abbot in Devon, is credited with
reducing operator fatigue and risk of cab access & egress slips, trips and falls on the bins-to-stockpile cycle. The repetitive requirement was for the dumper driver to have to dismount to access the
air-operated chute doors, re-mount to load the dumper, then dismount again to close the door. The
solution being an infra-red remote control system with which to operate the loadout controls from the
comfort of the dumper cab.
