The range of hydraulic breakers with integrated Intelligent Protection System (IPS) technology from mining equipment specialist, Epiroc, delivers efficient and reliable performance over an extended life cycle, presenting customers and end-users with lowest total cost of equipment operation and ownership. IPS is a fully automated function that enables the breaker to autonomously self-adapt to any working condition with no manual intervention or reaction required. A first of its kind in hydraulic breaker technology, IPS uniquely combines AutoStart and AutoStop in a single function. Previous generation models featured only AutoStart and AutoStop. Although IPS has been designed to automatically operate within these modes, the user has the option to switch manually between AutoStart and AutoStop, providing an elevated level of control during operation. Alongside the easy, simple mode switching capability, access is also hassle-free. While previously the StartSelect /manual mode was located within the cylinder and could only be reached through the opening of hydraulic circuit, the IPS is conveniently fitted in the cylinder cover making automated mode switching possible without the need to open the hydraulic circuit. IPS offers an efficient solution for a variety of applications such as primary and secondary breaking for example that require different set ups. The HB 2000, 2500, 3100 and 3600 models are already available with IPS and the HB 7000 to HB 10 000 hydraulic breakers making their debut towards the end of 2018. “Significantly decreased costs coupled with increased uptime and productivity, make Epiroc hydraulic breakers with IPS next level in the breaking.” Epiroc, www.epiroc.com
